I am a victim of Vertex III as well.After having hard time with it, i got a Crucial M4 and decided never to buy an OCZ again.

Been using a faithful Vertex Plus R2 as a boot+ drive for a long time now. Unfortunate news for OCZ. The reality is though when it's time to get an ssd for the laptop or replace the desktop ssd, it'll depend on the deal, specs & reviews at the time not the brand name. And by deal I don't mean cheapest.

That statement also says Toshiba will gain access to “OCZ's proprietary controllers, firmware and software, as well as the teams responsible for bringing these solutions to market, in addition to OCZ's established brand and sales channels.”
Like that's going to help? I thought the problem with OCZs WAS the controller and firmware.

Maybe Toshiba wants to study them and their software, so it does not make the same mistake....then it will fire the workers and improve upon the firmware if possible.

$35m is the cheapest sale I have ever seen for a whole company. Toshiba was lucky..

This just means they are holding on longer until they can't hang on anymore

Maybe Toshiba will Implement this tech in all of there Laptops from the jump and make it just a standard and affordable that is what should happen

They have a chance here to steal the Mobile market if they price well and don't blow it up because it has a SSD

OCZ warranty issues?

Toshiba buys OCZ's belly-up SSD business: Where does that leave your warranty? | PCWorld

I expect the acquisition is for its manufacturing.

Also OCZ had bought PC Power and Cooling. I wonder what will happen to that.
