BenQ has reportedly withdrawn from the DVD recorder market, with the product pages on its website no longer including DVD recorders.
Citing sources in the Taiwanese optical storage industry, Digitimes.com reports that BenQ informed retailers that it is no longer selling the products.
BenQ faced dissapointing sales of its DVD recorders lately and has decided to drop the segment. It is not sure whether BenQ will either enter the Blu-ray or HD DVD recorder markets.
Four years ago, BenQ established Philips BenQ Digital Storage (PBDS), a joint venture with Philips.
