HDD DVD recorder prices still high due to lack of supply of key components

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 0 comment

Production costs for HDD (hard disk drive) DVD recorders remain high and difficult to drop due to few back-end LSI (large scale integration) ICs and no locally produced HDDs for leading Taiwanese makers, according to local industry sources.

In a typical 160 GByte HDD DVD recorder, the HDD components and LSI ICs account for 30 percent and 10 percent, respectively, of the production price while loaders and pick-up heads take up another 20 percent, the sources pointed out.
