Samsung External DVDRW Comparison

Today, I was making a comparison between two dvd drives. Knowing that the two of your DVDRW internal drives are malfunctioning is indeed irritating, and your best hope is to buy an external dvdrw. And since we have two notebooks here(a laptop without internal dvdrw), I really need to buy one. I've got some bucks from my last photoshoot, so $$$ won't be much pain in the ass. xD.

So, here it goes.
I saw that in the pricelist(2012) of PC Gilmore Computer Center Asus, Samsung DVDRW SE-208AB Slim External costs PHP 1,530.00 while the Samsung DVDRW SE-S084C External Tray Type worth PHP 1,800.00

by the way, this time I will trust samsung brand. I hate SAMSUNG HARD DISKS. Really, they're always output S.M.A.R.T error during boot.

SUMMARY:
My verdict? I'll go to SE-208AB. 170php is quite a big thing for me. haha! And besides, it has different colors. Speed of the two optical drives are quite similar. But you guys must choose the SE-S084C because it has a higher buff memory. Buff Memory is important because the higher the buff memory, the lower the rate of the error in writing in full speed.

The truth about internet speed

Thursday, March 15, 2012 Posted by Glenn Von Posadas 1 comments

Yesterday, I saw a post on 9gag.com about a grand mom who has an internet speed of 40Gbit/s. Wow. That's fascinating. So I did a research about the internet speed. I found an article from techmaish.com. HERE:

DSL/ADSL


Maximum Speed = 25-30Mbit

Wired Ethernet

Maximum Speed 1000Mbits

Satalite Internet

Maximum Download Rate = 1 Gbps

Average Download Rate = 1Mbps

Average Upload Rate = 256kbps

According to SpeedTest.net

maximum internet speed Maximum Internet Speed Available in the World




Another clue that i found on the web about maximum internet speed is that: (from amit agarwal)

Scientists have set a new world record for data transmission by transferring a data rate of 2.56 Terabit per second over a glass fibre link of 160 km length.

2,560,000,000,000 bits are equivalent to the contents of 60 DVDs.

By comparison, the fastest high-speed links currently carry data at a maximum 40 Gbit/s, or around 50 times slower.

The research was carried out at Fraunhofer Institute which also developed computers with Emotion sense.


It means maximum internet speed is 40 Gbit/s

Still it is not clear that what is the maximum internet speed available in the world. Only government agencies and military can answer this question, because they uses internet for defense purposes.

If any one can better answer this question, then feel free to share a solid proof with us so that we can know about maximum download and upload speed currently available in the world.
