Plextor announced that they have entered the market of CD media by launching a range of its own CD-R media :
Available in packs of 10 and 50, the discs are high quality and high speed, capable of recording up to 48x.

Using its extensive experience of building high quality CD-RW hardware, Plextor is ideally positioned to produce complementary media.

Plextor CD-RW drives are synonymous with premium quality and superior reliability – and we have designed the CD-R discs to the same tolerance.

"While the CD-R packs carry the premium Plextor brand, they are aimed at everyday end-users and as such will be priced very competitively in the high street."
