PlexTV is a brand new feature designed to add TV compatibility to CD/DVD drives, and has been integrated exclusively in the latest external writer from Plextor.


Available now for approximately £48, the 8X external slim CD/DVD writer boasts a small profile and lightweight design. With USB power, two essential software packages and a 2 year warranty, it is a versatile solution for any user who wants to share, back-up and view media on their TV, projector or other media player – at home, in the office and whilst travelling.

PX-612U Key Features:

* Exclusive PlexTV feature provides direct compatibility with TV/Projectors

* 8X writing speed with full functionality of a high end drive

* Supports all CD and DVD formats

* Slim and lightweight design

* USB powered for portability

* Bundles PlexUtilities and NERO 10 Essentials

View and enjoy multimedia directly from disc to TV with PlexTV:

Many HDTV are able to display content from a wide variety of devices including hard disk drives, cameras and flash drives, but do not recognise optical disc drives. To solve this problem, the PlexTV cleverly translates the output signal to mimic a hard disk drive in order to provide compatibility.

With the PlexTV, users can connect the drive, insert a disc and use the media playback function of their TV, projector, media player or other USB-enabled display in order to browse supported files. Whether gathering with friends and family to look at pictures and videos, or hosting a work presentation, the PlexTV makes it a breeze to view important files on a larger screen with minimum fuss, cost and equipment.

Slim and lightweight with USB power for optimum portability:

With the sleek brushed metal PX-612U, users can enjoy the full functionality of a high end external CD/DVD drive within a slim, lightweight package (less than 300g). The drive operates with USB-power to eliminate the need for bulky cables or mains power, ensuring that users can share, back-up and view essential files – even whilst away from the home or office.

Enjoy advanced features and high quality playback with bundled software:

The PX-612U comes with two software packages which enhance the hardware functions. PlexUtilities offers an array of useful functions to users, including testing and quality measurement of user written or pressed media, advanced disc and drive information and control and fine-tuning of the device. NERO 10 Essentials offers high quality applications for DVD/CD burning and media playback.


The PX-612U with PlexTV is available now and is priced £48 RRP.

The drive comes with 2 years of Plextors ‘Fast Warranty Service’.
