Our friend Bijtje used our newssubmit to tell us that PCstats.com has a review on the Samsung SD-616 DVD-ROM player. This drive is able to play DVD’s at 16 speed and CD’s at 48 speed.
Samsung is an electronics giant from Korea who has steadily made inroads in the consumer electronics and PC market over the last few years. By offering up a good balance of performance, quality, and features, the SD-616 is able to compete in the same market segments which the product is geared for.
There is a lot of upside to this DVD-ROM, and its a fairly impressive unit when compared to the Pioneer which is the drive that’s considered to be the fastest on the market.
Overall the Samsung SD-616 is a unit that would make me consider upgrading my older Toshiba DVD drive, when considering the advantages of its faster CD-ROM capabilities along with its competitive DVD-ROM abilities. Its much more quiet, and better looking than the Pioneer drive as well.
