Samsung SH-222AB vSB00
Made in Philippines, manufactured date: March 2011

This is a SATA burner. Like the B series Liteon, the SH-222AB has a 1.5 MB buffer memory. It can perform quality scan without jitter reading like previous MTK Samsungs. CK’s Patch Utility doesn’t work with this model.

As they claim, does this drive require less access time?

Yes, it does. But this feature cannot compensate for the generally poor performance of this new Samsung. 18X or higher burns usually failed the trasfer rate test. 12X-16X seems to be the optimal writing speeds for most media I tried. It is more like a 16X, not a 22X burner.
