How many DVD recorders manufacturers make their own drives?

Postby Sa[v]aGe on Mon Aug 16, 2004 1:52 pm

I know that there is a lot of stuff out there that is rebagged so I wanted to know all of the manufacturers which make their own drives.
So far I'm sure about:
Nec, LiteOn, Pioneer, Plextor, BTC, AOpen, LG (Hitachi-LG data storage), Samsung (TSST), Benq, Optorite (?)
Any others?

I wouldn't consider Optorite a manufacturer...

Don't forget Nu-Tech, Panasonic, and Teac manufacturers some of their own drives as well.

Seems to me that some "manufacturers" use NEC chips (Pioneer...). So it's more complexe...

Plextor too have been known to rebadge drives from other manufacturers (but not often though).

I forgot Mitsumi. They design their own drives I think.
