Ahh, the humble ROM drive. Really, it’s probably one of the lesser items that don’t get the same attention as some other components in the system, but it’s also one of the more important components. Today we’re looking at an external one from Plextor and we’ve got to say, external ones are playing a bit more importance these days due to the fact that we’re seeing so many laptops and netbooks with no ROM drive at all.
Checking out the drive itself, it’s got to be said that this is a very good looking external drive. With aesthetics being so important to people these days it’s nice to see that Plextor has gone to the effort to make the PX-B120U look good on your desk. Across the top we’ve got this really nice design which is a similar pattern to throwing a rock into still water.
