To determine which product is a better value, you need to take into account the full cost of ownership over the lifespan of the product. You can’t just look at the difference in price, but you need to take into account the full cost associated with the product, including durability, reliability, and longevity, to get a full picture of what it will cost you in the long run.
For example, if we compare the high quality duplication grade Optiarc AD-5290S series of CD/DVD recorder drives with a competitor’s low cost CD/DVD recorder drive. In this scenario, the alternative drive is say a couple of dollars cheaper than the Optiarc drive. However, the alternative drive lasts only 6 months at most under the heavy duplication production, while the OPTIARC lasts at least 12 ~ 15 months under the same production load. That means that you would have to purchase 2 ~ 3 replacements of the alternative drive over the lifetime of a single OPTIARC drive. So that initial minor savings is not only wiped out, but you end up paying nearly 2 ~ 3 times more for the alternative drive(s) compared to the OPTIARC over the lifespan of the drives.
In this scenario, I only looked at the true hard dollar costs of ownership, there’s also the issue that the OPTIARC offers superior quality and less rejects than the competition. That’s another cost that should be counted when determining the overall cost of ownership. Optical drives may not be very expensive and therefore you may not think it’s worth doing a cost projection for them, however, when you consider the number of times you have to replace your drives, then you’ll quickly realize how those savings can add up.

Vinpower has long been known as a reliable and innovative duplication hardware manufacturer. Yet, the key to our success lies in the high quality of our standalone duplication controller. The knock on our controller was that added technological and safety advantages came at a cost, pricing our controllers above others, like ACARD. Now, with our acquisition of the ACARD duplication technology, including the controllers, we are able to offer a complete line of controllers, including lower cost versions for more price sensitive markets.
Vinpower is the largest global supplier of digital duplication controllers. This has stemmed from the overall reliability and high quality of our controllers. Another benefit is the fact that the Vinpower controllers can work with all known drives and medias on the market today, as well the ability to operate special functions with select drives and media, including the ability to offer copy protection for DVD and BD video content. These added benefits, plus lower costs, offer a greater assortment of benefits to duplication customers around the world.
In addition, when a duplicator’s drives become worn, they have issues burning certain medias and create longer duplication times or higher failure rates. Vinpower’s controllers recognizes these variances in the methods that drive’s burn media at during various stages in its production cycle and helps compensate through managing the duplication process. This not only extends the lifecycle of the drives, but also reduces the number of failed burns produced by the duplicator(s) as well. Making the Vinpower controllers able to further save money by extending the life of the drives and not wasting perfectly good media.
