Plextor Announces Bus-Powered DVD Burner

Plextor announced its second-generation ultra-portable DVD±R/RW CD-R/RW multi-drive. Available immediately, the pocket-sized PX-608CU measures 15.9mm high and weighs just 250g (less than nine ounces), which makes it one of the smallest portable DVD writers available in the world. The PX-608CU is ideal for mobile laptop users and others who require a modern, stylish, and compact DVD burner to use anywhere.

Numerous enhancements have been made to the PX-608CU, most notably the addition of USB bus-power for both maximum convenience and true plug-and-play usability. There is generally no need for an external power supply, although the PX-608CU retail package does include an AC adapter for systems that may not meet USB power requirements. The redesigned clamshell chassis is both portable and stylish. The PX-608CU is also RoHS compliant, satisfying the regulatory requirements of European Union markets.

The PX-608CU multi-drive delivers DVD recording speeds of 8X DVD±R on single-layer media, 4X DVD±R on Double-Layer and Dual-Layer (DL) media, and 5X DVD-RAM. The drive also supports 8X DVD+RW, 6X DVD-RW, 8X max DVD-ROM, 24X CD-R/RW/ROM. DVD±VR is supported for direct disc recording, while DVD+RW background format eliminates the need to manually format a DVD+RW disc.

The PX-608CU features a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 interface for easy connections to Microsoft Windows-based PCs. The PX-608CU drive features a 2MB buffer and Buffer Underrun Proof Technology to prevent buffer underrun errors and allow multi-tasking.

Plextor's drive ships with the Roxio Easy Media Creator 8 software suite for burning video, music, photos, and data to DVDs or CDs.

Plextor’s PX-608CU drive ships to distributors in North and South America in February 2007, with a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $169.00 USD. All retail packages include one-year full warranty and unlimited toll-free technical support.
