Mobile application security vulnerability report

Market presence

Initially, the SH-B123 was due to hit the market shelves in July, but the official release was pushed back. While it seems to have a rather patchy existence on Samsung’s web pages, this BD-Rom drive is certainly in evidence to buy on-line at considerably less than the list price.

Blu-ray upgrade time?

Verdict

While tests suggest this BD-Rom doesn't deliver on the claimed Blu-ray read speeds, it's certainly a niftier drive than most. Overall, Samsung’s SH-B123 is an all-round decent upgrade, ably assisted by the Cyberlink bundle, and is worth shopping around for. Oh, and if you want Lightscribe, just make sure you get the SH-B123L not the SH-B123A. ®
