noise. In addition, SH-222AB is manufactured with lead-free soldering
technology in accordance with the RoHS (restriction of hazardous
substances directive) that limits use of materials with Pb, cd, cr+6,
Hg, PBBs and PBDE.
The SH-222AB internal DVD writer offers a SATA interface and a variety
of speeds across different data media types including: 48X CD-ROM
reading, 40X CD-RW reading, 22X DVD±R recording, 12X DVD-RAM recording,
