Playing around drawing this with Geometer's sketchpad seems not to give a unique answer.  

The smallest product is 1/2 when the triangle is isosceles right with hypotenuse BC (O,D coincide as do A,E)

The largest is about 0.636 when the triangle is isosceles with angles about 64,64,52.  Ratio of unequal sides about 1.15
