   We've been reviewing quite a number of Samsung products here at GT.  Does it mean we only review their items and no one elses? No. Simply put, there is no other optical drive company that can match it in quality and price.  Where else can you get a combo DVD/CDRW drive for less than 80 dollars?  If price doesn't get you, then the features like standard 8MB buffer memory and sound dampening technology should. 

   So today, we're on another reviewing run through another optical drive, their newest 52X24X52 speed CD-RW.  This review will be straight forward, since many times the technical mumbo jumbo will likely confuse many people.  We'll try to get to the main juicy parts...
