Samsung SH-B083

The Samsung SH-B083 is touted as the first internal Blu-ray disc COMBO and is available in capacities of up to 25 GB for a single layer disc and 50 GB for a double layer disc for use in PCs. Based on Samsung’s ODD leadership, the SH-B083 Blu-ray drive reads with speeds of 8x for BD-R and BD-ROMs media. The COMBO drive can also reads CDs at up to 40x and DVDs at up to 16x speeds. The device features Samsung’s dual layer jumping algorithm, which provides users with an average access speed of 350ms. The drive allows users to watch HD movies on their PC as well as record HDTV broadcasting on to a DVD. It comes bundled with Cyberlink Powerproducer software. The software allows users to record HD camcorder movies to a DVD disc.

Features

The SH-B083 is a Blu-ray disc combo drive that is equipped with two lenses for reading and writing. One lens is utilized for BD read while the other lens is used CD/DVD read/write. It features a spherical aberration compensation technology (SACT) which optimizes reading the BD drive which normally does not have a protective layer that has a uniform thickness. Other features on the SH-B083 includes precision step control technology (PSCT) which accommodates the higher resolution in the optical pickup head unit (OPU) position control system that the smaller track pitch of BD demands, a four point skew adjustment, an optical pickup lens cooling system reduces heat buildup and increases thermal reliability. The unit is an eco-friendly drive that features low power consumption and an aerodynamic frame design which helps lower acoustic noise. This is done by preventing pressure concentration in several areas of the bezel and door. The SH-B083 is designed with a front bezel with mirror front door design and blue LED and comes bundled with Cyberlink TrueTheater software, which allows users to upscale a DVD resolution movie to full HD resolution. The drive also supports Firmware Live Update which allows users to ensure they always have the latest BD drive firmware version. The SH-B083 will be available in the US from November onwards.
