Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Samsung SM-348 CD-RW/DVD Combo - Samsung SM-348 CD-RW/DVD Combo
Tue, April 01 2003 | 1:54AM | PermaLink Feedback?
"The good old optical drive, the same one that served your countless optical needs, has just gotten better. I remember when I bought my very first CD-RW drive. I thought an 8x8x32 drive would suit my needs just fine and would never have to upgrade… That is, of course, until reality exposed its façade and technology decided to leave me behind in its dust! Nowadays you have at least 3 different devices, along with their various formats to choose from. More are expected to come as newer formats (DVD-R/W or DVD+R/W specifically) become “official” and/or developed. So far, “officially”, you have the run of the mill CD-ROM drives, the bit more fashionable CD-RW drives, and the ever so extravagant DVD-ROM drives; all of which are at your disposal in this day and age. Well, that just wasn’t gonna cut it. A new frontier was explored with the addition of CD-RW/DVD combo drives. It is, exactly what the name suggests, a combination drive consisting of elements from all three drive types. Now you can enjoy nearly all of the optical media available with one drive, hooray!”
