    Hopefully they will be able to improve on the customer relations and shed some of the negative PR OCZ has

    Re: News - OCZ and Toshiba deal agreed, assets to be bought for $35m

    So will OCZ now be referred to as TOCZ ?

    Also next time a new chipset comes along that beats indilinx, they need to use that new chipset instead of stubbornly sticking with indilinx - This is the only way they can stay in the game as far as I can tell.

    Re: News - OCZ and Toshiba deal agreed, assets to be bought for $35m

    I don't know what Toshiba is like as a business so right now it appears to be the best possible outcome to a bad situation for OCZ.
    everyone keeps their jobs.
    Toshiba gain indefinite access to OCZ's controllers
    OCZ gain indefinite access to Toshiba's chips
    It's a real shame what's happened to OCZ though, i look at my PC with it's DDR2 OCZ Reaper RAM, back when OCZ was a market leader and it could (should) be there still.
    It used to be the OCZ SSD's that were among the best, but they got muscled out by the high earners with huge R&D like Samsung.

    Why? I thought we - as consumers wanted MORE competition out there - not less.

    And tbh, based on the last WD product I bought (Caviar Black desktop drive) and some of their latest products (Black^2 hybrid drive that only works for Windows), WD would be the last group I'd want.

    $35m for OCZ/Indlinx? Bargain in my books.

    Toshiba will have one of their strong brands now, hopefully the Ocz will improve under them.

    Toshiba just ate up an SSD competitor. WD doesn't have any SSD business. Therefore competition has been reduced.

    Re: News - OCZ and Toshiba deal agreed, assets to be bought for $35m

    I can see the PSU division disappearing. I believe Toshiba only wanted to get hold of the SSD side along with the controller technology.

    WD does have an SSD business, its mainly enterprise and embedded but its still there. I wouldnt be surprised if they are deliberately avoiding the home market because its so easy to make a mistake and tarnish your reputation.

    That's interesting - I thought that they (WD) were just OEM'ing Sandisk components.

    Think I'll be sticking with either Crucial or Samsung for the forseeable in any event.

    Oh maybe they do then... dunno.

    Generally i would be of the same opinion, I might be persuaded by a Corsair Neutron GTX. They do fantastic in all the reviews i have seen.
