-- Conclusions

   After all the testing on this drive, it showed us that these DVD/CD-RW combos are not much different than having two separate drives.  The DVD picture was very nice, the read time and load times were also very fast.

   The burns were done perfectly, the CD-R and CD-RW we used read fine in the Samsung drive and also in a Hitachi and Ricoh drive.

   If you are in the market for a space saving drive that can do both DVD and burn your favorite CDs, this is the drive for you! It is quiet and gets the job done for a remarkable price.  A big thanks to Samsung for providing us with this great sample!


  • Fast and quiet drive
  • Great manual
  • IDE cable included
  • Nice software package
  • 2 cd-r/rw media included


  • Would have been better if there was a larger buffer
  • Or, inclusion of burn-proof technology to prevent buffer under-runs.
