CD-R prices have hit bottom, forcing many makers in China to shut down their operations while others have reduced production. Lead Data is adjusting its inventory levels to help stabilize CD-R price levels and help the market rebound, the company indicated. Although Lead Data is unable to push up CD-R OEM price levels alone, the company is optimistic about the CD-R pricing outlook.</i>"<br /><br />Well I can't blame them. CD-R prices are so low that I even use blanks as drink coaster. I will be interesting to see if there is any price passed on to the consumer.
