FREMONT, Calif. - October 30, 2006 - Plextor® LLC, a leading developer and manufacturer of high-performance digital media equipment, today announced the PX-755UF DVD±R/RW CD-R/RW drive. The new Plextor burner is designed for businesses, consumers, and professionals who demand industry leading performance and reliability.

The new PX-755UF DVD/CD drive is the first Plextor external drive to feature 10X DVD+R Double-Layer recording speed. Users can quickly burn up to four hours of high-quality MPEG-2/DVD video on a single 8.5 GB disc using 10X DVD+R Double-Layer media (or 6X DVD-R on Dual Layer media).

"The PX-755UF is a versatile device that boasts not only industry leading recording speeds, but also premium software features that enable users to fine-tune their recordings for maximum quality and speed," said Michael Arbisi, vice president of channel sales for Plextor. "The fact that the external drive has a dual FireWire-USB interface means that it can be easily shared around a small office or professional studio."
