Official Press Release

Plextor® LLC, a leading developer and manufacturer of high-performance digital media equipment, today announced its second-generation ultra-portable DVD±R/RW CD-R/RW multi-drive. Available immediately, the pocket-sized PX-608CU measures 15.9mm high and weighs just 250g (less than nine ounces), which makes it one of the smallest portable DVD writers available in the world. The PX-608CU is ideal for mobile laptop users and others who require a modern, stylish, and compact DVD burner to use anywhere.

Numerous enhancements have been made to the PX-608CU, most notably the addition of USB bus-power for both maximum convenience and true plug-and-play usability. There is generally no need for an external power supply, although the PX-608CU retail package does include an AC-adapter for systems that may not meet USB power requirements. The redesigned clamshell chassis is both portable and stylish. The PX-608CU is also RoHS compliant, satisfying the regulatory requirements of European Union markets.

“The PX-608CU breaks new ground for DVD burners by eliminating the need for an AC power source beyond the USB connection, which allows the drive to pull power from most attached computer systems, whether desktop or laptop,” said Michael Arbisi, vice president of channel sales for Plextor. “Of course, the PX-608CU also retains the most important and popular functions of its predecessor, including 5X DVD-RAM for removable data storage applications. This means mobile computer users can use the PX-608CU as a lightweight, high-capacity, removable data storage device.”

The PX-608CU is available for US$169.00 RRP

Hitachi' R&D boys have come up with mega-micro RFID devices. The RFID's can reportedly be embedded into paper, possibly as a way of identifying counterfeit notes. Impressive to say the least...bragging rights to Hitachi.
