Plextor recently unveiled its new PlexEasy External DVD/CD Burner at the CES 2012. Unlike the ordinary DVD burner, the PlexEasy comes equipped with a built-in SD/MMC memory card slot and a USB port which allows the user to connect a wide variety of devices including both mass storage devices and Picture Transfer Protocol (PTP) devices including your digital camera, smartphone, tablet or computer.
It has the ability to burn photos directly from a digital camera or smartphone via its USB connection without the use of a computer or the use of any software. It can also be used to transfer files from an SD card to DVD or CD disc quickly and easy. Even though it has the ability to work without the use of a PC, it will also work with a PC to burn disc at speeds up to 8x. No pricing details were announced when it was unveiled at the CES 2012.
