Latest external PC/Mac DVD ReWriter from Plextor

Plextor launches the latest update to its external DVD Rewriter family – the high end Plextor PX-830UF. This fast 20x drive is ideal for all users looking for the latest optical speeds and with both USB2.0 and FireWire connectivity, it is compatible with both Mac and PC systems.

Rudy De Meirsman, Sales & Marketing Manager at Plextor, says: “Fast external drives, such as the 20x Plextor PX-830UF, are particularly useful for laptop users without optical drives, for example the latest small form-factor ultra-portable PCs and the MacBook Air. Plus anyone looking for a reliable drive in their home or office setup.”

Building on the success of the external PX-810UF 18x DVD ReWriter, the PX-830UF offers the latest burning speeds for professional and enthusiast users, through to anyone looking for a stylish addition or upgrade to their home/office set-up. Simply connect the unit using a USB or FireWire cable supplied, and you’re off!

Manufactured with the quality and reliability you’d expect from Plextor, it is presented in a stylish, yet robust matt black external unit.   Fully compatible with Microsoft Vista and the latest Mac OS, it is perfect for Apple users – such as designers, agencies, marketing teams and any small office or home/SOHO users.

The PX-830UF is designed with a dual interface for extra flexibility – conveniently including both USB2.0 and FireWire connectors on the rear panel (as denoted by ‘UF’ abbreviation). In addition, the drive comes with a software package suitable for all users – Nero 7 Essentials (including Nero Express 7).
