  • Summary: Overall, the Samsung SE-W164C is a nice product, although not particularly quiet. It has the advantage of portability: It can be plugged into any system that runs Windows XP and immediately used to read a disc. Thanks to USB and Plug-and-Play, CDs can be burned using Windows' built-in capabilities without needing to do anything more than plugging in the drive.

  • Conclusion: The Samsung SE-W164C is an impressive external DVD burner. The drive as a CD reader, is fast with low seek times and with good CD error correction. DVD reading capabilities are also good, with good error correction. 12X for DVD±R is good but we would like the same for the DVD±RW format, instead of the current 8X. Game protection schemes are not much of a problem for the drive, which managed to create working backups up to SafeDisk version 3.1x.
