Brussels, April 2003

Plextor launches fastest USB 2.0 flash memory drive on the market: the PlexFlash

- Plextor broadens storage product range

Plextor, one of the world's leading manufacturers of CD/DVD drives and media, today announces three versions of its new PlexFlash USB 2.0 flash memory drive – the PX-F128, PX-F256 and PX-F512. Previewed at CeBIT 2003, the drives read at 4MB and write at 5MB per second, making them easily the fastest on the market today.

Ideal for transporting data, graphics and music, the PlexFlash drives have high capacities of 128MB, 256MB or 512MB. Weighing only 30g each, the PlexFlash is compact and highly portable. However, it is shock resistant and highly durable. For securing data, it also includes a ‘write protection capability.’

Being plug and play, the PlexFlash is easy to operate for both Mac and PC users. No external power supply is necessary and no drivers are needed for Windows ME/2000/XP or Mac OS 9.x or higher.

Patrick Peeters, Sales and Marketing Manager at Plextor says: “PlexFlash is Plextor’s first offering that is non-optical - we are introducing complimentary products to expand our range in order to become the broadest storage manufacturer in the business. Industry statistics show that the market for flash memory drives will grow considerably over the next couple of years and through using our existing channel partnerships, we will be making Plextor’s well-respected brand available to a broad spectrum of consumers.”

Available from mid April and include a two-year warranty.
