Samsung Releases New External DVD Writer

Samsung has released a new external DVD writer in the market, the SE-S084B series. This is a tray-type DVD writer that comes in seven color choices, and was specially designed to meet market demand for external DVDs particularly for lacking laptop requirements that need the assistance of backing up files and making more space for files.

The SE-S084B series uses a solitary interconnect cable for both data transmission and power supply, and weighs less than 0.4kg for easy transportation. It also adopts a lead-free soldering technology to further reduce the carbon footprint while making it safer to dispose of a few years down the road.

With this new release, expect other storage solutions to follow. We have seen a lot of them in the market today but until now, the marketability and feasibility of turning to external drives has not been realized until now. With larger files and embedded storage space on the PC or the usual notebooks, these external writers are not being groomed as the solution to address the said needs.

You can pick up the SE-S084B series in a 8X DVD+R and DVD-R writer, a 6X DVD+R and -R Dual Layer writer, and a 5X DVD-RAM writer models, with each of them retailing for $79.99.


Would You Prefer External or Internal DVD Writers

It is quite surprising at how fast the rate of price drops as far as computer peripherals today occur. Some months back, internal DVD writers cost somewhere in the vicinity of $50 to get. Now they cost practically half the price and by all means they are brand new.

There are also external DVD writers that are getting much rant today and they cost around $75 in the store. Between an internal and external DVD writer, unless you need it for mobile plugging purposes, it would be best to get the internal DVD writer if you will just use it for burning on your PC.

There are others who want external DVD writers so that they can plug it on multiple PCs or perhaps their laptop. There is really no configuration needed as they are USB based and plug-and-play. Rather than getting each PC their own DVD writer, sharing one is not only economical but convenient as well since you can remove it and just plug it in only when needed.

The cost is variant. Internal writers are stocked on one workstation only and unless you hate opening up your CPU, internal DVD writers only take a one time installation. There are no drivers required as well as Windows often recognized these optical drives instantly once booted up.

So between the two DVD writers, it all boils down to purpose and budget. Besides, if an internal DVD writer could go as low as 50% of its original price, imagine after some months how much an external DVD writer would cost?

Out of Space? Get an External Hard Drive

At times, we may find ourselves running out of space as far as our internal hard disk drives are concerned. So you can turn to burning them to a DVD or CD but the thing is, how often can you do this practice? Are you sure that your burned files can still be accessed when you need to restore or access them?

It has always been better to store files and programs on a hard disk. Other than not having to worry about proper access of files, it is much convenient. PC users could care less how much files they have on their hard drive but the fact of the matter is that hard drives, external or internal, are better solutions for most.

External drives via USB connections pose as another storage device to which can be accessed. Such has been the gift of technology towards techie geeks these days and one thing you will notice is that you can bring it anywhere and plug them to any PC when you need your files to be safe and with you always.

The cost for getting one is not the expensive. In fact, with the right resources, you may be surprised that it can be close to the same amount of CD burners and discs. Further, you don’t have to worry about running out of space since hard disks are known to have larger storage spaces. So if you use it all up, you just buy a new hard drive, but that would really take some time compared to traditional optic storage drives capacity.
