Plextor Announce Super Slim, Small and Lightweight External DVD Writer

January 17th, 2011 – Plextor have today announced the launch of a new 8X external slim design DVD writer, the LX-611U.

Plextor is renowned for bringing high performance digital media solutions to the market, and the LX-611U continues this trend with an external DVD writer which is perfect for professionals, students and other users who want freedom over when and where they copy data and playback DVD movies.

The PX-L611U is available across the UK and Europe from January at an RRP of £49.

Key Features:

* 8X writing within an external casing for quick on-the-move burning
* Incredibly lightweight and portable
* Single USB power and battery for anywhere, anytime operation
* High recording accuracy for top quality
* LightScribe technology for professional labelling
* NERO 9 Essentials and PlexUtilities software
* 2 year on-site warranty

Slim and lightweight for the ultimate in mobile sharing and entertainment:

The ultra-mobile PX-611U is only 22mm in thickness, and weighs a mere 330g; a profile which makes it delightfully lightweight and barely noticeable to carry.

Now, professionals, students and other users who seek the freedom of backing-up and sharing data or watching movies whilst out of the home, can have a truly mobile solution bundled into a tiny package.

With a thoughtful combination of a single USB power source and internal battery, there’s no need to worry about how to pack and carry bulky power adapters, or risk using unnecessary amounts of the notebook’s precious power to operate smoothly.

High performance software for effortless back-ups:
The PX-L611U is bundled with the high-quality NERO 9 Essentials software which offers a selection of flexible tools to improve performance during recording of DVD and CD media.

PlexUtilities software is also included with the drive, which offers a comprehensive and user-friendly selection of tools to assist users to test, tune and view information about the drive and writing performance.

LightScribe adds a professional finishing touch:
Lightscribe is an innovative technology that uses the laser in compatible drives to ‘draw’ high quality images on the top of specially produced discs. It provides the ultimate professional finish and makes creased labels and smudged pen a thing of the past. Visit for more information.

Exceptional warranty terms offer complete peace of mind:
Unlike many others of its kind, the PX-L611U offers an added level of reassurance with the Plextor ‘Fast Warranty Service’ – a 2 year on-site warranty across the EU, Norway and Switzerland (1 year elsewhere) – so users can feel secure in the knowledge that their must-have device is covered for longer.
