Digitimes reports that DVD burner prices have decreased considerably throughout the year despite of the tight supply, my guess is that manufacturers are looking for massive adoption of the technology in the retail and by OEMs... speaking of which, Paul is preparing a nice round-up of DVD-RWs devices that hopefully will be done soon when he returns from Las Vegas... how do you like that?

Retail prices for DVD-RW and DVD+RW drives have recently dropped to US$160-170 from US$370-380 in the first quarter of this year. NEC has priced some products even lower than this level.

If you want more details on pricing and specs of the different devices available you can have a look to our DVD burner pricewatch.
