SAMSUNG Addresses Noise and Vibration Issues of High-Speed CD-ROM's with Auto Balancer

LONDON, UK - February 26, 1998 - Samsung Electronics is reducing noise and vibration levels of high-speed CD-ROM's with the worldwide launch of its flagship 32 speed unit. The SCR-3230 features an auto balancer that cuts imbalance within the drive. The next generation mechanism, unique to Samsung, also improves playback and reduces sensitivity to external shock.
"In the continual search for faster data transfer rates and the capacity to handle large volumes of data, Samsung has tackled the associated issues of noise and vibration", says Mark Pini, product manager for Computer Peripherals at Samsung Electronics UK. "These are important areas of concern for end-users, particularly corporate customers. Our award-winning range of CD-ROMs has proved to be fast, reliable and cost-effective and the SCR-3230 makes no exception, being our fastest yet."

The new unit achieves a maximum rotational speed of 6700rpm allowing data transfer rates of 4800kB/sec and access time of 80Ms. CPU usage is maintained at less than 80% which enables the processor to multitask more efficiently when the drive is in use. The unit features a 512K Buffer Memory enabling fast access to large volumes of multimedia data and a vertical holder which allows it to be mounted in any orientation.

The SCR-3230 is compatible with CD-R/RW technology and all major CD-ROM standards permitting its use with a broad range of software, including the latest multimedia applications. It also meets the Red Book and Yellow Book standards as well as being multi-session Photo-CD compatible.

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a US$19 billion flagship company of Korean-based the Samsung Group, is a world leader in electronics, with operations in more than 60 countries.
