Plextor announces Fall release of Blu-Ray burner

By Justin Mann on
The limited selection and high prices of Blu-Ray and HD optical drives have turned many people off to early adoption of the technology, but that doesn't stop manufacturers from pushing ahead with their plans to phase in the new formats. Plextor is next in the growing list of companies that are producing next-gen optical hardware, and this Fall they will be releasing the PX-B900A, their first Blu-Ray burner. Supporting all the traditional formats such as DVDs and CDs, it'll also feature an 8MB cache and be able to burn single-layer 25GB Blu-Ray discs at 2x. It doesn't have anything that makes it stand out above other products currently available, so we may get lucky and see Plextor offer it at a much lower price than other companies. They haven't given any official pricing, though, and we won't know for sure until Fall comes around.
