This month will see the launch of no less than two new Plextor products: the PlexWriter 52/24/52A and the DVD recorder PX-504UF. The newest offshoot of the PlexWriter family, the CD-RW drive 52/24/52A, could be described as the ‘home’ version of big brother PlexWriter Premium. In addition the PX-504UF is the external version of the PX-504A, which recently came onto the market and is characterised by its unique double USB 2.0 and IEEE 1394 (FireWire) interface.
The 52/24/52 drive is equipped with PoweRec, VariRec, ‘Buffer Underrun Proof’ technology and an ATAPI (E-IDE) interface and it writes and reads discs at an express speed of 52x. The PlexWriter 52/24/52A re-writes at a speed of 24x. The drive has a
2 MB buffer and is available as an internal version with white or black front bezel.
The PX-504UF writes, re-writes and reads CDs and DVDs, and that at speeds of 16x, 10x and 40x respectively for CDs and 4x, 2.4x and 12x for DVDs. To avoid problems with writing, the stylish drive is supplied with a buffer memory of 2 MB. True to tradition, both new releases are supplied as a total package inclusive of professional software, the necessary cables and other extras.
The PlexWriter 52/24/52A and the PX-504UF will be available from mid June 2003 via Plextor’s retail channels at a recommended retail price of 89 EUR* (excl. VAT) and 315 EUR*
(excl. VAT) respectively.
