How low can prices go?

Postby UALOneKPlus on Sun Feb 16, 2003 4:43 pm

It's awesome seeing all the $20 and even $10 deals on CD-RW drives.

I wonder how long they can keep this up. If it's a sustainable business pricing model, that would be great. But I wonder how on earth they can make a profit on such deals, unless the rebates are scams.

I hope in the long run it doesn't hurt competition, which then would hurt us consumers in the end. In the mean time, let's pray the DVD Writer prices go down to $40 or $20 by the end of this year! :lol:

well, that's what happens - companies like Teac and Yamaha dropping out of the business...

Wayne: In your signature it says "Home-Made fu". What exactly is a "fu"? I know what it could stand for, although I'm not allowed to repeat it on this forum. :)

Naw, keep it. Just...uhh...please don't tell me you put on astronaut gear whenever you sit in your La-Z-Boy. A little roleplaying, if you will. That would be truly lame. J/K :)
