Install Samsung's SH-222AB internal DVD writer for a fast Lead-In that considerably reduces disc recognition time during start-up. Experience ultra-quick load times and dramatically reduce the wait time from disc insert to usage.

  • newegg Double-up on Speed Means Less Time Waiting With Samsung’s new technology, the 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 DVD Writer enables a much richer experience for ODD users looking for quick start-up operation.
  • newegg Low Heat. Low Noise. Low Power Consumption Samsung’s ultra-reliable, easy-to-use, easy-to-install DVD Writer not only reduces heat and CO2 emissions, its unique aerodynamic frame was also engineered to reduce acoustic and airborne noise by preventing pressure concentration in specific areas. As eco-friendly as it is user-friendly, this dynamic DVD Writer delivers high performance on low power consumption, helping you do your part to maintain an energy-efficient home and promote a green lifestyle.
  • newegg Blazing Speed Makes this DVD Writer a Trailblazer Enhanced and enabled by Samsung WriteMaster technology, this lightning quick writer intuitively detects the media type and automatically writes in the optimal speed for the disc. So all you have to do is just click to burn your disc.
  • newegg Engineered for Extreme Reliability Whether it’s kicking into high rotation speed or performing low speed operations such as direct disc labeling, Samsung’s DVD writer prevents noise and vibration while ensuring reliable disc writing. It even checks the quality of each inserted disc and intuitively alters the laser power on the inner and outer sides accordingly. And for the most reliable writing condition, this trusty DVD writer tilts the objective lens when the disc isn’t laying flat.
  • newegg Windows 7 Compatibility The Samsung Slim Internal DVD Writer was engineered for ultra-compatibility, including Windows 7.

1 out of 5 eggsNot worth buying

Pros: Low price

Cons: Built Cheap

Other Thoughts: I only burned up to 12 DVDs with this drive over the 12 months I had it, at one point I tried to burn a DVD, it did not burn right. I tried again with a new DVD and got the same issue, then with a new brand of DVD, still had the same issue. The drive is garbage.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good for disk installations.

Cons: I put in some old CD's and they could not be read, but they could be read by other cd players.
(I put in a Nirvanna and a Black Sabbath CD probably in a 90's CD format)

5 out of 5 eggsNo complaints

Pros: - Does everything it's supposed to
- Doesn't sound like a helicopter
- Doesn't cost much

Cons: Don't get any bragging rights by having this.

Other Thoughts: This was the cheapest DVD burner on Newegg when I bought it. In addition to reading discs, I've burned a number of CD-Rs and a few DVD-Rs without any coasters. Works great with XP x64. I'm satisfied with going with this over a Blu-Ray reader.

5 out of 5 eggsVery fast and quite

Pros: This drive has been rated high and there's a reason. It's quite and burns like a beast. I have used the hell out of mine and that's why I have the same drive in 2 other computers.

Cons: none so far

Did you find this review helpful? Yes No
