Samsung SW-216 - Samsung SW-216
Tue Feb 12, 2002 | 12:22P| PermaLink
For several years, many removable storage devices have tried to replace the floppy drive as an economical and efficient way of transferring large files. Some, such as the Zip drive from Iomega, have fared quite well in the market, while others like the LS-120 (Superdisk) haven't been able to do quite as well. One technology that has actually been around for quite some time, but is only recently entering the mainstream market, is the CD-Recordable/Rewritable drive. With hardware prices dropping below $200 for a high-speed drive, and media often costing less than a dollar per disc, it's obvious that CD-R/RW has a good shot at being the true floppy-killer. Considering the emerging popularity of CD-RW drives, it's certainly no surprise to see many manufacturers dueling it out; releasing ultra-speedy drives at bargain prices. One such manufacturer in this battle is Samsung Electronics; a company well-known for their line of consumer electronic products, as well as computer monitors, laser printers, and even MP3 players. Their SW-216 CD-RW drive offers speeds of 16x for writing CD-Rs, 10x for writing CD-RWs, and 32x for reading CD-ROMs. While definitely no match for the latest 24x and even 32x recorders currently available on the market, the SW-216 excels in an area these higher recorders don't: price. At an average price of $85, the SW-216 should be an affordable option for many users.
