The core readout element is represented, as in the HERMES project, by an optical pickup head, as used in CD, DVD-ROM or BLU-RAY, which embeds in a single optical path both a laser source and a high-resolution photodetector.
The drive also has higher resolution in its optical pickup head unit position control system, which helps to transmit the smaller track pitch of Blu-ray discs.<p>The Combo drive also features low power consumption and an aerodynamic frame design to decrease acoustic noise, Samsung stated in a press release.<p>The drive's front bezel, or front panel, has an updated look, including a mirror design on the front door and blue LED.
