ItÂ´s just like Sony/Ericsson mobile phones (nowdays no more a joint venture). Ericsson contributed with technology (hardware) in same way as NEC did it for nowdays Optiarc drives.
CanÂ´t see why we should blame Sony Co. at all in this matter.
Sony is just the name/“brand” holder for Optiarc drives as told in news release. Nothing else.
Although IÂ´ve been a member for a while I just posted my personal opinions from what I learned abouth NEC chipset drives/burners on this forum, thanks to CDFreaks. Sorry if you feel anything wrong about that
