Plextor preps CD, DVD zapper

| Posted: Aug 3, 2006 11:04 pm

It's been made known today that Plextor will soon introduce a new device dubbed the "Plexeraser", soley designed for the purpose of destroying DVDs and CDs.

 

I'm not too sure why one would find any real use for a killer device such as this....... well, not unless you've been naughty and the cops are ready to break down your door that is.

 

Details on it over at Akihabara News and Reg Hardware.

 



Storage specialist Plextor has announced an external optical drive designed to delete all the data stored on a recordable or rewriteable DVD or CD - permanently. It does it quickly, too - single layer CD-R/RW and DVD±R/RW media take just three minutes to wipe, the company claimed.

 

Dubbed the PlexEraser PX-OE100E, the product's pitched at security conscious corporates who want to ensure that binned optical media don't contain confidential information that could be retrieved later on. Plextor's system zaps the organic dye layer, destroying any data the disc may contain and preventing any new information being written to it.
