Samsung Unveils New DVD Writers with Ultra Fast Load Times

SAN JOSE, Calif.–Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a worldwide leader in digital consumer electronics and information technology, today announced the SH-222AB internal DVD writer with fast Lead-In that considerably reduces disc recognition time during start-up. With SAMSUNG’s new DVD writers, consumers will get ultra quick load times, dramatically reducing the wait time from disc insert to usage in the Optical Disc Drives (ODDs).

With Samsung’s new technology, the SH-222AB DVD writer reduces its Lead-In-Time up to 60 percent at maximum. Prior to this, users of traditional DVD-writers had to wait 15 to 30 seconds of load time to start after inserting a disc into the drive. By reducing the lag time, Samsung’s SH-222AB enables a much richer experience for ODD users looking for quick start-up operation

Like previous Samsung ODDs, the SH-222AB is eco-friendly. It features low power consumption and an aerodynamic frame design for low acoustic noise. In addition, SH-222AB is manufactured with lead-free soldering technology in accordance with the RoHS (restriction of hazardous substances directive) that limits use of materials with Pb, cd, cr+6, Hg, PBBs and PBDE.

The SH-222AB internal DVD writer offers a SATA interface for easy connectivity and a variety of speeds across different data media types including: 48X CD-ROM reading, 40X CD-RW reading, 22X DVD±R recording, 12X DVD-RAM recording, 16X DVD+R Dual Layer recording, 8X DVD+RW recording and 6X DVD-RW recording.

Samsung’s new DVD writer, SH-222AB, is available in the United States with an MSRP of $29.00.
