The fight between the two high definition digital formats made by SONY and TOSHIBA ended a while ago with SONY being the winner. However there are still companies that support the HD-DVD format by Toshiba by releasing optical devices that can read and write CD / DVD / Blu-Ray and HD-DVD discs. This is done mainly because there are a lot of people ( including myself ) who supported Toshiba and bought an HD-DVD device so many people have HD-DVD movies. In any case it is great to see a company that supports a dead format. Our today’s review is about the PX-B920SA, an optical device made by Plextor, the leading company in optical drives, which can read and write the formats listed above.
Plextor has been the Leader in optical drives around the world ever since its conception under a different name in 1985. In 1985 it was called TEXEL Corporation and was established in Tokyo as a subsidiary of Shinano Kenshi Co.Ltd. It wasn’t until 1993 that Plextor was established in Brussels and started its long and very successful domination in the Optical drive market manufacturing from plain CD-ROM, CD-RW drives with either IDE or SCSI connection up to Dual Layer DVD-RW and Blu-Ray drives with the latest SATA connection these guys have done it all. Of course with such a great course Plextor decided to venture into other hardware areas such as Multimedia Players, HDDs and Floppy Disk Drives.
