PRICE OF THE MAXTOR ERASABLE OPTICAL DRIVES

Those Maxtor Corp erasable optical drives – they use the magneto optic record and erase technique – certainly don’t come cheap at the recommended end user price, but the quantity 1,000 OEM pricing is seductive: the 5.25 Tahiti 1 storing 512Mb per side of a two-sided $250 platter will be out in October at $6,000 $2,500 for 1,000-up, while the Fiji 1 3.5 variant, using a $95 160Mb single-sided platter, costs $2,000, $1,100 for OEM 1,000 quantities, and is also out in October; discussion, see page 5.
