A million Superdrives – Macitynet.it
One million Superdrives before the end of the year. This is the ambitious goal that Pioneer has set itself and which appears increasingly reachable thanks to the series of agreements that the Japanese company has reached with a significant number of computer manufacturers. After Apple, the first OEM to adopt hybrid CD / DVD burners, Sony has also announced that it has decided to adopt the DVR-103, this is the exact name of the Superdrive, in its Vaio line. Before Sony and after Apple they adopted the Compaq burner and NEC.Pioneer, in parallel, also fired the mechanism to third parties and external burner manufacturers, increasing the possibility of market penetration. The large-scale diffusion of the Superdrive is one of the strategic factors for the affirmation of the standard. Recall that there are other competing and incompatible systems that could invalidate the acceptance of the burn methodology chosen by Pioneer. But if the drives distributed before the end of the year are really a million, it is very likely that Pioneer has won the battle.
