  • Conclusion: The SH-S223Q is a good example of what we've come to expect from Samsung. Affordably priced, the drive offers a good number of features as well as some of the fastest DVD writing speeds available. While normally a winning combination, there were a number of performance issues that kept the SH-S223Q from getting top marks in our review. The SH-S223Q performed very well when writing to DVD+R and DVD-R media at 20x.

  • Cons: Questionable writing quality with some CD-R, DVD-R and DVD+R DL media, Had a hard time reaching its rated speeds when reading pressed CD's, Reads CD-R media at only 40x, Packet writes to CD-RW media at only 16x
