No more CD burners from HP
Hewlett-Packard, currently still the front runner in sold burners in retail with a 5% market share, says it will slowly but surely withdraw its current devices from the CD-RW sector and focus on DVD burners.
One does not want to 'drive in two directions'. In October, the DVD100i will also be presented in Europe, the first dedicated DVD burner, which is already available in the USA. Planned sales price: 1600DM. There are certainly a number of reasons for the exit. In addition to the falling profits due to the ever increasing competition, there is certainly also the desire to enter the DVD sector as successfully and as early as possible in order to gain large market shares in a new area in good time.
