FYI
Toshiba is one of the leading manufacturers of memory chips and has been for a while, they are simply adding more to their portfolio with the aquasition of OCZ.

Toshiba already has the NAND, the controllers didn't come from OCZ anyway (not that the Sandforce woudl be something Toshiba wanted) and OCZ reoutation is much worse than Toshiba's. what are they actually buying they couldn't accomplish by just making Toshiba SSD from scratch? Whatever Toshiba makes froms cratch couldn't be worse than what OCZ produced.

I'm sure they could have hired soem OCZ talent after bancruptcy without having to buy the company.

anyone in the world knows "toshiba" and they ususaly have good products. No one outside of Internet forums knows OCZ. and the people that know OCZ, wouldn't buy anythign rom them. so the brand value of OCZ is meaningless, probably more a liability than an assett.

By buying the company itself, they now own all of OCZs patents, and OCZ being one of the lead SSD companies, they'll have quite the portfolio of patents.

Toshiba now owning these patents, they're free to make SSDs as they please with all of OCZs stuff. If they had just hired some OCZ talent and tried to manufacture SSDs they'd have been set back a few years while they research and patent their own stuff. They've just taken a shortcut route.

Well as what's been said already - that's a Sandforce issue, not OCZ.
