Plextor introduces PX-880SA latest design 24x DVD ReWriter

The  Plextor PX-880SA burner, which we talked late July, is now available for sale.

Plextor announces its latest internal SATA DVD writer – the 24x PX-880SA
is the fastest drive in its optical range. It features a new improved
Plextor chassis design that reduces noise and greatly improves writing
quality – making it ideal for all users in the home, home-office and
the larger organisation.

While burning at 24x speed, air flow
can cause inconvenient acoustic noise within other chassis on the
market. Plextor new unique drive design regulates the air flow, reduces
the amount of noise created, and at the same time enhances writing and
reading quality.

The PX-880SA incorporates a host of
features including PlexERASE, PlexUTILITIES, LightScribe technology,
and more. It even bundles Nero 9 Essentials burning software for all
your digital media needs.
