Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review

Samsung SW232 32-10-40 CDRW Burner - Samsung SW232 32-10-40 CDRW Burner
Wed, May 08 2002 | 2:59PM | PermaLink Feedback?
With the growing acceptance, and more importantly , lower prices of CD-R/RW drives, the speed race is on yet again in the world of optical drives. Samsung's latest CD burner in the SW series is capable of writing CD-R media at 32X, rewriting CD-RW media at 10X, and reading standard CD-ROM's at 40X. The aptly named SW-232 retails for about $75USD which is pretty good considering it has an 8MB buffer, comes bundled with Roxio's Easy CD Creator 5 and supports PureBurn / Justlink buffer underrun protection. The SW232 has 512KB of flash memory so the firmware can be updated in the future if necessary; the drive we tested was using firmware version R300. The SW232 writes using a P-CAV write type and features a quiet geared tray mechanism (as opposed to rubber belt). The CD-RW can be mounted horizontally or vertically depending on your preference and application. Both the full sized 120mm CD's and smaller half-size 80mm CD's can be read.
