SAMSUNG SH-W08A 8x DVD writer

  • Conclusion: The joint venture between Toshiba and SAMSUNG did not yield a superbly fast optical drive as we had initially hoped. Hours spent on testing the drive had left us with only an average impression of SAMSUNG's SH-W08A DVD writer. Factors such as high CPU usage, slow CD-DAE speed and slow DVD seek time were some of the drive's weaknesses. Sadly, these performance elements happened to bear quite a significant portion in our final verdict of the drive.

  • Conclusion: SAMSUNG SH-W08A DVD±R/RW recorder - Page 1 5 Conclusion The Samsung drive performed well with low seek times in the CD reading tests, although full seeks were a little high. The error correction test results showed better than an average performance. DVD reading is fast with both recordable and pressed media, along with good seek times. The drive further displayed very good error correction capabilities with the defective discs.
