Plextor and NCIX Announce Strategic Partnership

Plextor, a leading developer and manufacturer of high-performance digital media and storage equipment, and NCIX, Canada's biggest technology e-retailer, have built a strategic partnership in which Plextor will supply solid-state drives for NCIX custom PC division, NCIXPC. Known previously for the stellar quality of its optical-disk drives, Plextor has emerged as a top player in solid-state storage, making Plextor SSDs a top choice for gamers looking for speed, consistent performance, durability, and reliability. Consequently, Plextor is now a go-to resource for NCIX, which builds customized, high-performance gaming systems.

Plextor and NCIX co-featured an exhibit at the E3 Expo video-game industry conference earlier this year. That collaboration was so successful that NCIX has decided to use Plextor SSDs in two of its gaming systems, the 901-M and IR-57M models, respectively. NCIX's 901-M "MilSpec 3.0" includes Plextor's M5Pro 256GB SSD, while Plextor's M5S 128GB solid-state drive is a key component of NCIX's IR-57M, a MinMax build that emphasizes graphics performance and scores high on longevity, quality and power.

Ivan Metelitsa, NCIXPC Brand Manager and System Designer, noted that that Plextor's five-year warranty, solid performance, and reputation for reliability make Plextor's SSDs a natural choice for NCIXPC. In addition, Plextor's TrueSpeed technology ensures that the drives maintain their speed over time and with heavy use.
"All of these factors mean that NCIX is glad to have Plextor as one of our go-to SSD partners," Metelitsa said.

Darlo Perez, managing director of Plextor Americas, emphasized that the strategic partnership with NCIX means that gamers will have more reliable and user-friendly machines.

"NCIX is one of the premier system-builders in North America and has been in business since 1997, so we are very happy that Plextor is part of its qualified component provider network," Perez said. "Ever since our optical-disk drive days, Plextor has been known for manufacturing quality products. Our partnership with NCIX further shows consumers that they will not only get a high-performing computer, but one with an SSD proven in reliability, quality, and stability."

NCIX is now developing yet another customized gaming system that will house one of Plextor's latest SSDs. That system build is scheduled to be unveiled at the 2014 International CES, the world's conference on consumer technology, January 7-10, 2014 in Las Vegas.

Furthermore, Plextor will be featured in both versions of Black Friday Edition NCIXPCs, to be unveiled on Thursday, Nov 26th!
