It is just a burner, after all

Michael B., Newegg
18 July 2008
  • Summary: No brand name on the front panel? sometime I forget what I bought... maybe Samsung doesn't want to be associated with this burner?
  • Pros: Quieter than most when running / burning.
  • Cons: A little slow on the up take. Loud eject. Discs don't seem to seat nicely into the tray, sometimes.

  • Summary: this is my scond review... for those of you that have read the reviews of this drive and have seen tons of people having the DRM driver error or the crc error or yourself is having those errors when buring with this drive, try uninstall adobe flash from your pc, restart it and try to burn the video.
  • Pros: Its sata, samsung & black.
  • Cons: for some reason it lept on getting that stupid drm driver error & crc error. After screwing up about 10 dvds i wiped my computer clean, re-installed everything and then it worked great. then all of a sudden i started getting the drm driver error & crc error. I finally found out what is was today ...

Very fast burner

Nathan M., Newegg
8 July 2008
  • Summary: I marked it down one egg on the ratings because of the buzz noise that it makes. Apparently the noise is pretty common in the 20-22x drives, but I've never heard it from previous drives. I'd love to see them fix that in the future.
  • Pros: Quick burn speeds for almost all discs I've thrown at it High compatibility Modded firmware available to enhance features (and void warranty) Came with OEM copy of Nero which was surprising
  • Cons: Has a very noticeable buzz to it when a disc is in the drive even when not spinning fast Higher price than other drives that are just as good Non-standard bezel on front face makes it impossible to change out to blend in with case (doesn't matter to me, but it might to others)

Samsung SH-S203B, good drive, but...

Laird W., Newegg
7 July 2008
  • Summary: Newegg rocks. With this problem, Newegg RMAed the drive and I'm getting the 202N version of this drive. I gave the drive 4 stars because it is a great drive, even though it got a gliche 10 months in.
  • Pros: Great speed, fairly quite, doesn't generate coasters like other drives.
  • Cons: After about 10 months or so, the drive would say that there was an audio cd in the drive when the drive was actually empty. Tried to flash the bios, but the drive said take the imaginary cd out of the drive first... fail.
