Plextor Announces Ultimate CD Burner
Internal Drive Features 52X CD-R Performance and Easy Media Creator 9 for Data
FREMONT, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Plextor® LLC, a leading developer and manufacturer of high-performance digital media equipment, today announced the immediate availability of the PX-240A Ultimate 3-in-1 CD-RW Drive. The new CD-R/RW/ROM drive is RoHS compliant and fully compatible with the new Windows® Vista™ operating system. The PX-240A drive introduces a new level of CD drive performance and features – all backed by Plextor’s reputation for quality.
The PX-240A 3-in-1 CD-RW drive delivers lightening fast CD recording speeds of 52X CD-R and 32X CD-RW, as well as 52X CD-ROM playback, with broad-base CD media compatibility. The drive features a 2MB buffer and Buffer Underrun Proof Technology to prevent buffer underrun errors and allow multi-tasking. High-quality Digital Audio Extraction (DAE) eliminates pops, clicks, and hisses for superior sound quality. The PX-240A also supports Ultra DMA-2 for fast data transfer, and S/PDIF connector for digital audio equipment. For easy connectivity with personal computers running the Microsoft Windows 2000/XP/Vista operating systems, the new internal Plextor drive features an E-IDE ATAPI interface.
“Both our consumer and OEM customers have been asking for a rock solid burner that can deliver the highest quality CD recordings with the fastest performance,” said Michael Arbisi, vice president of channel sales for Plextor. “By removing the DVD functionality, which lots of people don’t need or want, we were able to lower the price of the PX-240A drive to $59.00, which is a great value when you consider that the drive supports Windows Vista and includes the latest version of Roxio Easy Media Creator. This should be the only burner a user will ever need to get the job of recording CDs done right the first time.”
Plextor Software Bundle for Windows
Plextor's bundled software package offers ease-of-use and extensive functionality for Windows 2000/XP/Vista computers. The PX-240A drive ships with the award-winning Roxio® Easy Media Creator™ 9 for Data software suite for burning video, music, photos, and data to DVD or CD.
