Lite-On IT to start selling SSD this year As the popularity of the drives increase, unsurprisingly more manufacturers are trying to get into the game, with Lite-On IT being the latest to join in.
The company says that beginning in the Q3 it will begin manufacturing SSD, starting with smaller 32-64GB internal models for PC OEMs.

Lite-On IT is currently a maker of optical disk drives but has factories that can be adapted to the now much more effective manufacturing processes of building SSD.

The company believes 70 percent of its revenue from the market will come from notebook PCs, with retail, server and industrial PC markets accounting for the rest.

Marvell HyperDuo tech will also be utilized for the drives, adds the company.

What, that's like Bisquick making hamburgers or Coca-Cola making automobiles.

Ehhh......they'll no doubt may a cheap ass, unreliable product that will force others to come down on theirs.

I don't see any stretch here but I do agree with the cheap poor product idea. I won't buy LiteOn anymore, they don't support their product like they use to, and their quality is poor as well.

Actually, there product as far as with DVD drives have been on par or even excelling performance in many cases with major competitors. It's best usually to check with customer's take on the product, but to use discernment to see which customers are talking out of their ass. Lite-On, which lesser-known, has been shown to produce "decent to very good" products. - BLUEBOY

Use to not anymore! I use to buy mainly LiteOn drives but they are crap now, compatability varies, firmware updates a joke, and there customer support is hard to reach and horrible. Otherwise they are a great drive. LOL
