Default Plextor Set to Exit CD and DVD Drive Consumer Market

Pressured with competition by Korean and Taiwanese makers of optical disk drives for over five years, Sninano Kenshi, which is best known for its electronic equipment division and printing equipment divisionís Plextor brand-name, has reportedly decided to exit the market of consumer CD and DVD optical disk drives (ODDs) to concentrate on other product lines.

that hasn't been Plextors USP, they depended a lot on people paying 3x the price for having a SATA drive

or rather big companies buying their products in bulk, OEM, 1000pieces and more; a few customer sales won't make a difference in the end
