    Samsung launches world's first 18x external Lightscribe burner

    Samsung is launching a new burner, and it's mighty fast. The SE-S184M - a USB2.0 external burner - can burn a DVD+/-R at a speedy 18x (just over 24Mbps) and DVD-RAM at 12x. Samsung says this makes it the fastest DVD+/-R and DVD-RAM burner on the market. It's a Lightscribe burner too, so with the right DVD media you can burn your own labels directly onto the disc.

    Tried lightscribe, works great except for taking 10minutes to write a few letters.

    yeah, shame the LightScribe part of it isn't 18x

    no matter how simple of complex the design of a lightscribe image, the laser is passed over the whole surface up to the last 'pixel' at 1x.

    Does anyone actually use external burners? I sure as hell don't and dont see the need. Except, possibly laptop users, but even then, upgrading a laptop drive is actually simpler than a desktop drive! usually just one screw and slide.

    Anways...i digress...lightscribe..yeah big whoop :/

    A lot of other people apart from laptop owners do use external burners.

    I guess they fall into two categories in the main - people reluctant to open up their PCs to add hardware (and there's an awful lot of them about) and people who want to use one burner on multiple PCs (of whom there's probably quite a few here abouts).

    Afterthought

    Of course, when I'm talking about using an external burner with multiple PCs, I'm really talking about the sort of arrangement I have here - an external drive bay into which I pop the latest and greatest burner. So I'm not talking about buying an external burner as such.

    Oh, and perhaps a more relevant question is, who in their right minds would burn a DVD at 18x?

    If you want a good burn, in my experience, slow is better, though I'll usually stick with 4x, rather than 1x or 2x as some folk who take their burning very seriously do.
