Plextor Intros Portable USB 2.0 CD-RW

Drive offers 8x8x24 speeds By Dave Nagel
Plextor has started shipping its new portable CD-RW drive, a USB 2.0 device offering 8x write, 8x rewrite and 24x read speeds. The PlexWriter 8/8/24U is lightweight and compact and connects via standard USB or USB 2.0 busses. (Typically USB 1.1 CD writers can reach speeds no faster than 4x, so a USB 2.0 expansion card will be required to achieve the 8x speeds this Plextor drive is rated for.)

The PlexWriter comes in a silver and blue case measuring 5.55" x 0.87" x 6.73". It weighs 1.1 lbs.

On the Mac, the drive requires Mac OS 8.6 or higher for USB 1.1 or Mac OS X for USB 2.0, according to the company. It's currently shipping for $289. For more information, visit
