Toshiba Samsung Storage Technology Corporation (abbreviated TSST) was an international joint venture company of Toshiba (Japan) and Samsung Electronics (South Korea). Toshiba used to own 51% of its stock, while Samsung used to own the remaining 49%. The company specialised in optical disc drive manufacturing. The company was established in 2004.

A slimline DVD Writer (TS-L633)

The company's headquarters is located in Shibaura, Minato, Tokyo, Japan with Hiroshi Suzuki as its President and CEO. Its subsidiary, Toshiba Samsung Storage Technology Korea Corporation is located in Suwon, South Korea, and headed by Dae Sung Kim.

Each corporation in Japan and Korea has the individual directorate system. For the business issues, TSST has been discussing it through the common relevant organization for mutual consent. TSST is currently responsible for the product development, marketing and sales, and has been taking advantage of the existing network of Samsung Electronics and Toshiba for manufacturing, sales, and after-sales service.

Half-height optical drives by TSSTcorp with writing abilities are branded "WriteMaster".

History[edit]

In October 2009, TSST had received a subpoena from the U.S. Justice Department for possibly violating the antitrust laws.[1]

Samsung and Toshiba sold their stakes in TSST to Optis Co., Ltd., a Korean manufacturer that made products for TSST under contract.[2]

In 2016 TSST entered Chapter 15 bankruptcy protection in Delaware US, shielding it from most U.S. creditor actions while the company reorganizes its business in Korea’s court system and restructures a $78 million debt.[2]

Models and specifications[edit]

All reading speeds are in constant angular velocity unless otherwise indicated.

"?" indicates that the format is supported, but the speed specification is unknown for this model.

Functionality not listed in "Additional functionality" (e.g. CD-MRW support) for a particular model does not always imply that the feature is missing, but may also imply that existing sources have not confirmed that feature for that particular model yet.

Half-height[edit]

Model numbers with the third digit being a "2" stands for an Parallel ATA + Integrated drive electronics (IDE) interface, while the digit "3" stands for a Serial ATA (SATA) interface.

Some models such as the SH-S162 and the SH-S182 have "L" variants (SH-S162L and SH-S182L) respectively, which indicates support for LightScribe technology.

Writing speeds higher than ×16 (constant angular velocity) are only unlocked on quality recordable media from selected vendors, including Verbatim and Taiyo Yuden.

Slim type[edit]

On slim type optical drives, accessing speeds are physically limited by the rotation speeds of the engine rather than the performance of the optical pickup system.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ CD-RWs with speed ratings higher than 16× are written in Z-CLV zones of 16×CLV, 24×CLV and 32×CLV, of which the highest level depends on the speed specification of the particular CD-RW media used.
  2. ^ DVD-RWs rated for 6× are written in Z-CLV zones of 4×CLV and 6×CLV for drive models until 2006, and entirely in 6×CLV for drive models since 2007.
  3. ^ CD-R: 24×CAV; CD-RW: 24×Z-CLV in zones of 10×CLV, 16×CLV, 20×CLV and 24×CLV of which the highest speed zone depends on the used media's speed rating[23]
  4. ^ DVD±R: 8×CAV; DVD+RW: 4×Z-CLV or 8×CAV; DVD-RW:6×Z-CLV in zones of 2×CLV, 4×CLV, and 6×CLV of which the highest speed zone depends on the used media's speed rating[23]
