SH-S222BB/BEBE 22x DVD±RW SATA ReWriter (Black) - OEM

The SH-S222 drive offers a powerful over-speed performance feature that enables consumers to burn data at high speeds - even on low speed media. With over-speed recording, users can write at 22X speeds on 16X media and 12X speeds on 8X media. As lower speed media is more cost-effective, users can save money while burning discs at faster speeds.
The SH-S222 drive provides blazing recording speeds across a gamut of different data media types including 22X DVD±R recording, 12X DVD-RAM recording, 16X DVD+R Dual Layer recording, 12X DVD-R Dual Layer recording, 8X DVD+RW recording and 6X DVD-RW recording. It enables consumers to burn 4.7GB on a DVD±R disc in approximately 4 minutes and 26 seconds, a 6 percent increase in speed compared to a 20X DVD writer. It also takes less than 12 minutes to burn 4.7GB in DVD-RAM format, which is a 30 percent increase in speed over a 20X DVD drive.
Samsung's SH-S222 drive supports SATA interface, the dominant interface for PCs.
As with Samsung's complete WriteMaster optical disc drive lineup, the SH-S222 features specific technology that ensures best-of-breed performance including SAT1 (Speed Adjustment Technology), TAC2 (Tilt Actuator Compensation) and Double OPC3 (Optimum Power Control). Buffer Under Run Free Technology4 supports stable writing under high speed, and Magic Speed5 and ABS (Automatic Ball Balancing System) 6 technologies reduce vibration and noise. The SH-S222 is also eco-friendly designed and is RoHS compliant.

No complaints

Bought this for my new system as I don't agree with those who say physical media is going obsolete.

It does exactly what it says, no complaints.

cd text writing

Have had no technical problems with the drive, has been fine so far for the year in which I've been using it. However, be warned; for those of you that want to be able to write CD-text on your Audio CDs, this drive is not capable of doing it.

P.S. Yeah, i know music cds are outdated and all, but I use audio cds for my DJing

Very Good

Haven't had much need for it except for installing OS and installing a few games. Handled them no problems.

Oh I did burn one disk and that went through no problem.

Steven 2011-09-05

Good drive

Nothing bad to say about this drive, managed to install windows 7 without any problems (even though I was expecting some from earlier reviews).
Does what it says on the tin, and pretty much a bargain.

George 2011-09-01

Good drive

What is there to say about this drive, other than its easy to install, the price is good & it works. Grab one today.

Jules 2011-08-03

What a bargain !!!

What a bargain, great price and is the usual samsung quality. No noise at all from my drive, and its fast. All in all its a good looking writer thats fast, quiet and at a bargain price !!!!!

KILLERDOG 2010-08-06

Not too shabby

I was expecting it to be faster and quieter after reading reviews etc that is why i am giving it 4 stars but looks very sexy and well packaged. I recieved it bang on time also.

Needs firmware to understand Windows 7 d

Its a good cheap drive, those who are having Windows 7 install problems this isn't just a rare fault.

A firmware update is required for it to understand Windows 7 install discs. Google Samsung ODD and click the second result, follow the on screen menus and download your firmware. The firmware is an .exe file, so it requires Windows. I had to install Windows XP so i could install Windows 7! Added an hour or so to the build time, thats the reason why this product is getting a 4 Star and not a 5.

Not Bad

Does the job, nice and cheap. Does run quite loud though.

Tom 2010-03-23

Matches the case and fast

Had no problems fitting this in and using it as a main drive - previous drive had to be replaced as it was starting to fail but this one is quiet and works very well too.

I even put it in a second PC because I rate it so highly!

Nice and quiet but not without it's faul

I bought this drive to finish off my new build and my dad has 2 of the same drives. I just happened to be unlucky.

This drive runs really quiet almost silently, which is a bonus if you are looking to run a quiet system.

The reason I only gave this 4 stars is because my drive had an unknown to me at the time fault.

This particular drive has a known but rare fault where it won't recognise Windows 7 discs (Every other type of disc reads perfectly).

My dad and I tried 6 different copies of Windows with the same end result. Tried my dads identical drive and it installed Windows first time, no issues.

I think I was just unlucky, but hopefully my replacement will have no such issues. A quick RMA request and it was on it's way back to OcUK.

Fast and faultless service from them as usual!!

Just be aware that you may have to do the same if you buy this drive.
