You mean Lite-Ons ? According to [COLOR=indigo]an article on DigiTimes : “…In addition, the company will launch rewritable DVD drives for desktop computers in the second quarter of next year.”[/COLOR]

Lite-On IT and Quanta Storage in Combo and DVD±RW Drives

For personal future reference, save the DigiTimes pages on your hard disk since you have to pay money to read the same links sometime later (I’m a regular registered member but something has gone wrong with my account.)

Each of LG and Samsung is planning to produce nearly one million units of CD-RW/DVD-ROM combo drives each month in 2003.

The Dec. 24 article mentions US$60 quote price for LiteOn combo drives and 20% gross margin. Nice to know CD-RW/DVD-ROM combo drives will cost about the same as 48x/52x CD-RW drives.

thanks guys (+ i did mean liteon DVD± drives :))
