Plextor announced the first space-saving Slim line optical drive solution for desktop PCs.
The compact 'dual-bay' Plextor PX-DB600 enables two optical slim line drives to be positioned into the space of just one 5.25" drive bay making it ideal for lifestyle chassis and small form factor Media Center PCs.
5.25 Dual-Bay ODD solution
The dual-layer multi-format (DVD+/-R and DVD-RAM) Plextor PX-608AL and the dual bay PX-DB600 (combined as the PX-DB608AL) enables greater flexibility and convenience for 'small footprint' PC-owners.
