Last week Plextor made things a bit easier for HD movie buffs lacking a Blu-ray drive on their laptops with their new PX-B120U external Blu-ray/DVD/CD drive. Now it’s not the most compact external optical drive on the market, and the top-load design makes it look like a relic from the 90’s, but what sets this drive apart is the fact that it can be powered by a single USB connection. So if you intend to use it when traveling, you can leave the AC adapter at home.

The drive comes bundled with Cyberlink’s Blu-ray and DVD software, and since the decoding is handled by your computer, you’ll need to ensure you have a system capable of HD playback before being able to enjoy Blu-ray content. It also has a reasonable MSRP of just $99.99, and can be used in conjunction with the company’s upcoming PlexMedia media player, turning it into a home theater Blu-ray player as well.
