I would hate to be in the optical drive business. They damn near give these things away.

Seriously, who cares? My $20 Liteon drive does it fast enough. I don't really care about a few seconds. I just put in a CD-R, and the time from the drive being fully closed to it appearing was 13 seconds. Who cares?

This is like asking, "Who cares about a faster boot time?" Or, "Who cares about Wireless-N over Wireless-G if you're only surfing the web?" Or, "Who cares about shaving five seconds off their load level time?"

I suppose maybe people who want a faster recog time, coupled with a much quieter optical drive, would care.

How long before they sell off their DVD burner business?

I own an Asus 20X DVD lightscribe writer that is a great drive all around but the time it takes to reconize a disc is kinda slow. I can't understand why it takes along time, anyone know?

Have you seen DVD writer prices lately?  You can get burners for $18-20 regularly at places like NewEgg.  But the extra ~$10 or so, it might be worth it for this Samsung drive.

Holy crap, at $29 it's almost a crime NOT to buy this.
