Last week Samsung released one of world's first 18x DVD burners that uses Serial ATA.
The interface provides the WriteMaster SH-S183L with a bandwidth of up to up to 600 MB/s, which makes it one of the fastest drives available today.

Actual data transfer speeds, of course, are limited by sustained read and write speeds of the drive. Samsung said that the device supports all major DVD and CD media formats with 18X write speed (24.3 MB/s) only possible with DVD+R and DVD-R media. The maximum read speed in both cases is 12X (16.2 MB/s).
The Samsung SH-S183L is available for $90.
