The drive comes in either white or black in a slim line design. The drive is slightly bigger than the slim line DVD burner from Samsung I reviewed before but still very slim. And the SE-406AB has a much better build quality than the DVD-Burner I reviewed. The drive uses two usb 2.0 ports to power on the unit and no need for a separate ac adapter.
The Samsung SE-406AB BD Combo Drive features 6X BD-Rom playback, 8X DVD-Rom playback, 8X DVD Burning, 6X dual layer burning, and 24X cd writing. The included software includes PowerDVD 9 and an entire suite of software from Cyberlink. This site includes PowerDVD, PowerProducer, MediaShow, Power2Go, InstantBurn, LabelPrint and PowerBackup. The drive features the ability to playback 3D Blu-Rays provided you have the hardware requirements (3D Monitor and 3D Glasses sold separately). TrueTheatre even converts 2D movies into amazing 3D videos. Cyberlink provides advisor software to make sure your PC is compatible with all the features. Those who have a large DVD collection can appreciate the Upscale Technology that will make your DVD’s look top notch.
I have been looking for an external Blu-Ray drive to playback movies on my computer. And now with a name like Samsung selling one for the price that generic ones are sold for it is a great deal. Overall if you’re looking to playback 1080P HD videos then you will want to take a look at the Samsung External BD Combo Drive SE-406AB.
