Conclusion: The Samsung SH-W162L is a fast, cheap DVD writer that has every feature you could desire, apart from DVD-RAM support. While the drive is very capable from a technical point of view we felt that it favours the more experienced user and we hope that Samsung will continue to develop the package of utilities that comes with the drive.
Conclusion: Samsung's latest release, the SH-W162L burner is suitable for most of the every day back up needs. Speed, quality, and LightScribe technology are some of the handy features of the SH-W162L. In a few words, we would say that it is a good drive. At the time of this review, the drive was flashed to the latest firmware from the manufacturer and no later version has become available.
