Optodisc Technology and Prodisc Technology, both second-tier producers of optical discs in Taiwan, are facing financial pressures and are eagerly competing for orders of 8x DVD+R/-R discs by lowering OEM quotations from US$0.15 to US$0.12 per disc, according to industry sources.

Other second-tier and small makers of 8x DVD+R/-R discs may be hit by the cut in prices, the sources pointed out.

However, CMC Magnetics and Ritek, the top two makers of optical discs in Taiwan, indicated that their production capacities have been booked up and that they will not reduce OEM prices. A large portion of DVD+R/-R discs produced by the two companies is for 16x speed, with present OEM prices ranging between US$0.18 and US$0.22 a disc.

I can't 100% confirm Prodisc's prices, but I can tell you that Optodisc is DEFFINATELY not even CLOSE to those prices!! Take the $0.12 USD, and tack on another $0.12 USD and you won't be too far from the price :o
