Plextor Support SATA DVDs

FREMONT, Calif. -- Plextor LLC, a leading developer and manufacturer of high-performance digital media equipment, today announced the immediate availability of the TurboPlex PX-810SA DVD Super Multi Drive. The new model addresses growing customer demands for DVD burners that support Serial ATA, the evolutionary replacement for the Parallel ATA physical storage interface. The PX-810SA also includes a new bundle of value-added software applications for tasks such as data backup, video editing, and DVD authoring.

OEMs, VARs, integrators, and consumers all gain benefits from Serial ATA technology. End users enjoy fast 150 MB/sec data transfer rates. The interface supports one device per controller connection, eliminating master/slave configuration jumper issues for installers. SATA also provides a substantial pin count reduction from Parallel ATA, while thinner cables help air-flow and improve cable routing—big pluses for OEMs and integrators.

“Our first internal SATA drives were designed specifically for manufacturers, resellers, and integrators, but we found there was also demand from professional and business users for these drives,” said Michael Arbisi, vice president of channel sales for Plextor. “The new PX-810SA is a return to the Plextor legacy of creating drives that appeal to professional and business users who need mission-critical recording reliability and quality, combined with a rich set of software tools and features. Support for SATA makes the drive even more appealing to users who need to quickly transfer and record large volumes of data.”
