The double-layer TS-H552B supports all the popular DVD recordable/rewritable formats, and provides computer users with greater storage power and even more flexibility to enjoy favorite movies and music, and archive data without regard to format variations.
â€œDVD storage is rapidly becoming the standard media format, enabling users to share multimedia presentations, burn or convert video clips, and create custom CD-R discs in minutes,â€œ said Tom Quinn, Senior Vice President, Memory Sales and Marketing for Samsung SSI. â€œAs a leader in DVD and optical disc drive development and manufacturing, Samsung has the capability to offer the latest technologies at more affordable price points.â€
The TS-H552B provides double-layer data storage up to 8.5GB in one disc, which is two times more than single-layer DVD and 12 times more than a CD disc. To reduce noise when recording or reading at high speeds and ensure outstanding functionality, the TS-H552B features Samsung’s Silent Pulse Width Modulation (SPWM) technology and an Automatic Ball Balancing System (ABS).
Fast and reliable performance of the TS-H552B is ensured through several high-end technologies including: Speed Adjustment Technology (SAT), which automatically optimizes the speed according to the disc quality; Tilt Actuator Compensation (TAC), which gives the disc a tilt with the objective lens for the most reliable writing condition; and Double Optimum Power Control (OPC), which strengthens the writing performance by controlling the laser power in the inner and outer sides of the disc. The drive also includes a power save function and technology to prevent Buffer Under Run Error.
The TS-H552B is capable of recording DVD+R media at 16X, DVD-R at 12X, DVD+/-RW at 4X and double layer DVD+R. The new 16X rewritable disc drive is now shipping with an estimated price of $200.
