    Plextor, Plextor… Seems they have a new Network Attached Story for you to consider. It’s the PX-NAS2, and it’s the company’s first NAS. Two bays in this bad boy—that means you can slip two hard drives in there, if you please. Read More

  • Review: Plextor 128GB SSD

    All the cool kids are playing SSDs these days. So much so that every manufacturer wants of piece of the sweet cherry pie. Even Plextor who was previously known as an optical drive/media company has a set of 64GB and 128GB SSDs available now.

  • Plextor PlexEraser Destroys Discs So You Don't Have To

    I get a considerable amount of pleasure from throwing the countless AOL discs I receive in the mail through the Fellowes shredder I have in my office. Unfortunately, this creates a huge pile of plastic shards and allows the organic dye coating the discs to escape and possibly cause environmental damage. Plextor aims to solve the problem with its standalone PlexEraser PX-OE100E drive. Designed… Read More

  • Plextor Working on Wafer-thin DVD Burner

    <img src=" at 24x. No pricing or availability and it seems like a bit of a niche product. It's powered by USB only, so there won't be an ugly wall wart to worry about. I have a Gateway ultralight , the NX100 with only one “spindle” – that’s marketing talk for any disk drive, which, in this case, is… Read More
