When it comes to optical storage, there are few names as well known as Plextor. For more than a decade, they've produced some of the best drives the industry has seen. Known the world over for their quality, performance and features, these drives have become favorites among consumers and professionals alike. To keep ahead of the competition, Plextor has continued to lead the way, bringing cutting edge technologies to market. Today, their product lineup includes a number of high performance DVD and Blu-ray Disc writers, many with features found nowhere else.

One of the latest additions to Plextor's already impressive line of DVD writers is the PX-Q840U. Sporting the same specs as its internal counterpart, the PX-806SA, this new external drive is capable of 20x DVD±R, 12x DVD-RAM, 8x DVD±R DL, 8x DVD+RW and 6x DVD-RW writing speeds and a maximum DVD read speed of 16x. The PX-Q840U also features support for Plextor's new PlexUtilities software as well as Sonic's Qflix recording technology. With Qflix, consumers can purchase and download movies and then burn a permanent copy that can be played back on a standard DVD player.
