Plextor has announced a new line of external DVD players and burners that feature new software for more control over how the drives operate. The new line of drives includes the PX-601U 8x Slim External USB Super Multi Drive that works with both Mac and PC systems. The drive is self-powered and gets all its juice from the USB port.

The PX-B310SA is a 6x internal SATA and an external version called the PX-B310U is an external USB version of the drive. These two drives are Blu-ray combo drives that can read Blu-ray and write to CD and DVD media. The PX-850SA is a 22x internal SATA drive and the PX-850A is an internal PATA version. Both are CD and DVD burners.

The new software allows users to view basic and advanced information about the drives. The software also includes a utility tool for destroying data on CD or DVD media. A few of the features of the software are a method of measuring the decay percentage on the laser diode of the drive, perform a self test, control the amount of sound the drive produces, and control over when the drive is idle to save power.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
