Plextor has announced the newest addition to its range of CD-RW drives – the PlexWriter S88TU. This is Plextor's first external, portable drive and is one of the smallest and fastest drives available today. The PlexWriter S88TU has a silver and blue case, and compact dimensions of 141mm wide, 22mm in height and 171mm in depth. Featuring a USB 2.0 interface, it is capable of 8x writing, 8x re-writing and 24x reading and is also Windows XP compliant. The PlexWriter S88TU also features Plextor's Burn-Proof technology, which the company claims puts an end to annoying buffer under-run errors. The drive comes bundled with one blank CD-R disk, one blank CD-R/W disk, plus CD-recording software Nero. The PlexWriter S88TU will be available from the end of September at a price of £219 plus VAT.
