Plextor Announces Windows Vista-Compatible DVD Burner; Internal Drive Features 12X DVD-RAM Performance and Latest Roxio Software Bundle
Plextor LLC, a leading developer and manufacturer of high-performance digital media equipment, today announced the immediate availability of the TurboPlex PX-800A DVD Super Multi Drive. Fully compatible with the new Windows Vista operating system, the new DVD+/-R/RW CD-R/RW drive introduces a new level of performance and features, including 12X DVD-RAM and a software bundle that includes Roxio Easy Media Creator 9.
The Plextor PX-800A drive features an E-IDE ATAPI interface for easy connectivity with personal computers running the Microsoft Windows 2000/XP/Vista operating systems. The PX-800A drive also supports industry-leading 12X-speed DVD-RAM functionality for removable data storage applications. A user simply inserts a blank DVD-RAM disc and the system automatically formats the disc and assigns a driver letter. Users can drag-and-drop files, use the “save as” command, and remove the disc, which can then be read in any PC or desktop player with a drive that supports the DVD-RAM format.
“The PX-800A supports multiple data storage, audio and DVD playback, and optical disc recording applications, with faster performance across-the-board,” said Michael Arbisi, vice president of channel sales for Plextor. “The PX-800A is one of the first drives from Plextor to support the newly released Windows Vista operating system from Microsoft. Including the latest version of Roxio Easy Media Creator really makes this drive a great value for customers.”
PX-800A DVD+/-R/RW Drive
The PX-800A internal multi-drive delivers fast DVD recording speeds of 18X DVD+/-R on single-layer media, 8X DVD+/-R on Double-Layer and Dual-Layer (DL) media, and 12X DVD-RAM. The drive also supports 8X DVD+RW, 6X DVD-RW, 16X max DVD-ROM, 48X CD-R/RW/ROM, 12X DVD-RAM. 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-800A multi-drive features a 2MB buffer and Buffer Underrun Proof Technology to prevent buffer underrun errors and allow multi-tasking.

Plextor’s bundled software package offers ease-of-use and extensive functionality for Windows 2000/XP/Vista computers. The PX-800A drive ships with the award-winning Roxio Easy Media Creator 9 software suite for burning video, music, photos, and data to DVD or CD.
