|I recently baught a samsung blu-ray optical drive for my PC, and when I got it home and installed it I was just utterly dissapointed with it. Very very noisy, slow to initialise, struggles with even recognizing a blu-ray disk and once it starts reading it makes constant repetative seeking noises that you would expect from a dead drive. Even more dissapointing is the fact that for the first 5 mins of playing a disk it jitters. I'd just suspect a faulty drive if I hadnt had this happen before with a samsung. A long while ago I baught a samsung DVD combo drive that wasnt even capable of reading the disk it came with (other PC's read the disk fine), once again it was noisy, slow, had about a 20% success rate with burning CD's and just was all round dissapointing.|
So my question is: Are samsung drives rubbish or have I just had bad luck? Every LG, Lite-On, Sony and Pioneer etc that I've used has been 100% but every Samsung I've had anything to do with has been beyond useless and barely capable of performing tasks it supposedly could do.
So with all that said: what is your experiance with Samsung drives and is there a particular drive manufacturer you would reccommend?
