Optorite is a quite large manufacturer. The produce most of MSI's DVD writers and CD-R Writers. [/B]
Yes, Optorite produces ODD products. They won't, and probably never, be made by Liteon. Compa had bought 40% share of Optorite from MSI in december 2003. Right now, Compa is the biggest shareholder of Optorite. Compa is beginning to merge ODD department with Optorite.
Optorite sells its products at a lower price than rivals in taiwan. Though I hold conservative attitude towards their DVD burners.
