Plextor Corp., a leading maker of optical disc drives, announced Monday what it claims to be the world’s smallest DVD burner for users on the go. The company believes that the part will become popular among users of thin-and-light laptops. The only difference between products of similar class is a rounded corner and built-in power supply unit.

Plextor’s PX-608CU powers itself from USB 2.0 and does not require any external power supply which usually takes additional space in the bag. The device measures by 137(W) x 143(D) x 16mm(H) and weighs about 250 grams, which is typical for devices of the kind. Nevertheless, the new PX-608CU comes with a rounded corner, which makes it look and feel a little smaller compared to rivals.

“The newly-designed clamshell chassis is the latest innovation from Plextor and not only provides a highly portable ergonomic unit for improved ease of use, but it also incorporates high reliability and durability for long term operation,” a statement by Plextor reads.

The new device can record CDs (24x) and DVDs (4x – DVD±R DL, 6x – DVD-RW, 8x – DVD±R/RW) as well as read compact discs (24x) and digital video discs (8x). The burner also features 2MB buffer to avoid buffer underrun issues.

Pricing of the part is unknown.
