Plextor Announces 18X DVD+/-R External Burner with USB 2.0 and FireWire Interfaces That Delivers Data Transfer Speeds up to 480 MB/Sec

Plextor LLC, a leading developer and manufacturer of high-performance digital media equipment, today announced the immediate availability of the PX-810UF DVD Super Multi Drive. This external drive combines the 18X DVD+/-R and 12X DVD-RAM performance of Plextor’s PX-810 Series drives with the convenience and portability of USB and FireWire interfaces.

The PX-810UF features a dual interface with Hi-Speed USB and IEEE 1394 (FireWire), enabling users in a small office or professional studio to share a single external high-performance DVD/CD burner among multiple Apple Macintosh and Microsoft Windows-based PCs. Burst data transfer rates of 480 Mbps (USB 2.0) or 400 Mbps (FireWire) allow a user to burn a 4.7 GB DVD+R disc in approximately six minutes.

The new Plextor drive also includes a previously announced bundle of value-added software applications for common tasks such as data backup, video editing, and DVD authoring, however Macintosh software is not included with this model.

“The new PX-810UF delivers a solid value proposition for customers,” said Michael Arbisi, vice president of channel sales for Plextor. “The combination of performance, share-ability, and price is outstanding. Everything you need to get started is included with the PX-810UF, including best-of-breed software applications that enable the average user to begin authoring DVDs and editing videos within minutes of removing the drive from its packaging.”
