Plextor, a leading developer and manufacturer of high-performance digital media and storage equipment, announces the release of their new PlexEasy External DVD/CD Burner at 2012 CES in Las Vegas. The PlexEasy is a versatile stand-alone optical storage device with a host of special features.


PlexEasy is a compact 8X DVD/CD Writer with a built-in SD/MMC card reader and a USB connector. It has the ability to connect directly to a wide variety of devices including both mass storage devices and Picture Transfer Protocol (PTP) devices such cameras, smartphones, tablets, and camcorders. And no computer is required.

Now for the first time, users can burn photos directly from a camera (point-and-shoot or DSLR) or smartphone (iOS, Android, Blackberry, etc.) without going near a computer or learning a complicated software package. It's now a three-step process: 1) connect the device, 2) insert a disc, and 3) press a button to burn a backup.

PlexEasy’s compatibility with mass storage devices enables the connection of MP3 players, flash drives, and external hard disks. Users can transfer videos, music, or other data from a device to a DVD/CD disc or from an SD card to an external storage device. By navigating the unit’s intuitive menu, users can also duplicate data quickly and easily.

Incorporating Plextor’s prestigious optical drive technology, the device can be connected to a PC if that's the preferred option. It then offers the full functionality of a high-end external DVD burner with support for all types of CDs and DVDs.

PlexEasy is slim and lightweight resulting in ultimate portability. PlexEasy is an ideal solution for both professionals and casual users. It's about saving time, working efficiently, and carrying less hardware to get the job done.
