Plextor Launches 4x SATA Blu-Ray and HD-DVD Combo Recorder, 6x Combo Reader

Plextor announced a new 4x Blu-ray SATA ReWriter—the PX-B920SA. This internal dual-format drive is capable of writing Blu-ray discs at 4x (BD-R) and also plays HD-DVD ROM discs.

In addition, Plextor has added extra convenience by including LightScribe technology to enable custom text and designs to be printed/burned onto discs.

The PX-B920SA not only uses the latest Blu-ray technology (and reads HD-DVDs), but is also a highly versatile dual-layer DVD drive that combines multiple formats—DVD±R/RW and RAM—into one. It supports both 12cm and 8cm discs (in the horizontal position) and has a 4MB buffer to ensure there is no data interruption. Write speeds: 4x BD-R, 2xBD-RE, 16x DVD+R/-R, 8x DVD+RW, 6x DVD-RW, 4x DVD+/-R DL, 5x DVD-RAM, 40x CD-R and 24x CD-RW.

Included with the drive is Intervideo WinDVD8, Ulead DVD MovieFactory 5.5, Ulead Burn.Now 4.5.

The Plextor PX-B920SA meets EU RoHS (restriction of hazardous substances) and WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) directives.

The Plextor PX-B920SA will be available from end of February 2008. It is covered by Plextor's Fast Warranty Service (2-year warranty in the EU, Norway and Switzerland (Collect & Return); other countries 1-year carry-in).

The company also launched the PX-B300SA dual-layer SATA internal combo reader that also supports the LightScribe technology. The product page is available here.
