Plextor PlexEasy PX-650US Versatile DVD/CD Burner

15 February 2014
  • Conclusion: Although the PX-650US is classified as an external 8xDVD/CD re-writable burner it's the versatile part that really separates it from similar devices since Plextor has given it two very special features. So not only you can back up your media files directly from your camcorder/camera/SD-MMC Card/USB Flash drive but also you can copy entire CDs and DVDs just with a push of a single button.
  • Pros: - Build Quality, - Innovation (Functionality), - CD to CD/SD/USB, - SD to CD/USB, - AC/USB Powered, - LCD Screen, - Write Speed (8X)
  • Cons: - Price (For Some)

Plextor PlexEasy

26 April 2013
  • Conclusion: Overall I think the product works incredibly well. It transfers data at really good speeds and nothing was corrupt over the five or so different tests that I did with it. Its use as an external disk drive was perfect and could easily see myself using it for a netbook, or even as a replacement for an internal disk drive. However the lack of ability to pull data off of a USB drive is somewhat disappointing.

Plextor PX-650US PlexEasy Portable 8x DVD Writer

8 June 2012
  • Conclusion: The PlexEasy is one of the more interesting optical drives to come from Plextor in some time. While aimed more at the novice than the enthusiast or professional, this versatile DVD writer offers impressive specs as well as a number of unique features that make backing up your data easier than ever.

How To Spend It
13 August 2012
  • Summary: If I screw up my eyes and think very hard, I can just about work out why this is only on the periphery of being silly, but silly nonetheless. It’s a device to back up your media cards – a good thing, I agree – to, um, a recordable DVD. The idea is that you can travel and back up your photos without taking a laptop. But the Plextor PlexEasy is pretty big and needs to travel with a hefty mains plug and adaptor.
