According to the statement, the PlexMedia is the first networked media player that can be connected to an external USB BD-ROM drive, making it possible to watch high-definition Blu-ray discs in your living room without having to purchase a Blu-ray disc player.
Simultaneously with the media player, Plextor also launched the PX-B120U, a compatible external BD-ROM drive. This portable drive can be connected to the PlexMedia to become a living room Blu-ray disc player, but is versatile enough to carry in a notebook bag or connect to a desktop PC.
The PX-B120U will be available the end of August 2010 for $149.99 (MSRP) followed by the PlexMedia in early September for $189.99 (MSRP).
Also at Computex, Plextor will showcase its complete Blu-ray Disc drive portfolio, including its new PX-B950SA 12X BD Writer and 12X BD Combo.
“As always, Plextor is proud to announce new, convenient solutions for its consumers,” said Christine Hsing, Marketing Manager at Plextor. “These new Blu-ray solutions, as well others additions to our diverse lineup, offer the Plextor audience even more high-quality options for their everyday lives.”
Also being showcased are the recently-introduced Networked Attached Storage device (NAS), and a new portfolio of Solid State Drives (SSD). The two-bay NAS drive will be followed up with a four-bay NAS solution for small to medium-sized businesses. By adding this new NAS system, Plextor aims to provide storage solutions for both home users as well as professionals.
Plextor also recognizes the growing demand for faster and more reliable storage solutions and announces its new portfolio of SSDs at Computex. Plextor will launch both MLC and SLC format SSD drives later in 2010.
The SSD drives complement Plextor’s range of storage products, which will also consist of a new lineup of external Hard Disk Drives. At Computex, Plextor will showcase its new generation of portable USB 3.0 and e-SATA Hard Disk Drives.
Plextor welcomes Computex visitors to visit the Plextor booth – G220-224 and G319-323 in TWTC Hall 3 from June 1 – 5.
