Samsung reported record sales for its slim external WriteMaster DVD writers amid a global economic recession.
The monthly sales volume of slim external DVD writers, which has tripled from last October, is linked to the rise in netbook sales.
"The netbook is a streamlined economical PC with limited
storage capability, designed for mobility and Internet
access," said Jin-soo Lee, vice president of Samsung's Optical
Disk Drive (ODD) marketing division. "Netbook consumers often
need an external disk drive, such as a Samsung external DVD
writer, for disc booting and installation of application
software from CDs or DVDs. "
Samsung has two different types of slim external DVD writers:
the SE-S084, which is a slot-in DVD writer and the SE-T084, a
tray-type DVD writer.

cable for both data transmission and power supply through a

The SE-S084 DVD writer features a sleek surface design
and is available in wide range of colors.
Samsung?s SE-T084 DVD writer features TruDirect, which
allows users to create DVDs and burn digital content
through a PC without the need for data to be stored on the
hard drive. Compared to using a hard disk drive as an
intermediary step to transfer data to DVD writers, the
TruDirect SE-T084M decreases the time it takes to
create DVDs, eliminating pre-mastering, multiplexing or
hard-disk buffering. The DVD writer also supports LightScribe,
a direct disc labeling function.
Samsung's family of WriteMaster external DVD writers boasts
many features; including SAT (Speed
Adjustment Technology); TAC (Tilt Actuator Compensation) and
Double OPC (Optimum Power Control). In addition, Buffer Under
Run Free Technology supports stable writing under high speed,
and Magic Speed and ABS (Automatic Ball Balancing System)
technologies reduce vibration and noise.
