Over the production life of our products, we change optical recorders and their connectors several times. We continually change other electronic components as our suppliers change parts or as we source new components of higher performance or durability. Although the look and feel of a particular model may remain consistent, internal components may change almost completely over a few years.
Over time, replacements for components originally used to build systems are no longer available and these systems can no longer be serviced.
When we can no longer source new, reliable components to repair our systems and printers, we designate specific ranges of production to be End of Service.
