Taiwan market: Entry-level DVD recorder prices to drop to US$179-199

Taiwanese manufacturers of DVD recorders, in response to worse than expected demand and the approaching launch of new models equipped with built-in hard disk drives (HDDs), will reduce their domestic retail quotations for entry-level models from US$239-249 to US$179-199, according to the makers.

The optical disc drive makers, which include Lite-On IT, BenQ, Mustek Systems, Tatung and Sampo, indicated they will begin volume production of HDD DVD recorders over the next few months, with some makers beginning in August.

As DVD recorders without HDDs continue to drop in price, they will increasingly replace DVD players in the market, these makers pointed out.
