Yep, Albert, it's a ~$20 drive here, okay, not much but depending on how long it lasts it can be expensive too... I have become cautious with Samsung products.
I have a SH-224DB here, still mounted in my tower, which was hardly used but is died pretty quick not reading any disks any more but the motor still spins. I had 2 of these drives.. one of it was replaced with an -224FB and the second one died a week later.
Samsung turned serious crap!
