Plextor readies Blu-ray recorder

Autumn introduction

Plextor will ship its first Blu-ray Disc drive in September, the storage specialist has said. The PX-B900A is an internal unit for PCs and will support both single- and dual-layer recordable and rewriteable media.

The drive connects to the host across via an ATAPI link. Like other BD recorders, it operates as 2x speed, writing to both BD-R and BD-RE discs of either 25GB or 50GB capacity. It will also write to DVD-RAM and DVD±R/RW media - both single- and dual-layer versions - and to CD-R/RW.

The PX-B900A will be available from September/October 2006, Plextor said. Pricing has yet to be set. ®
