  1. Corsair today announced its plans for the upcoming transition from 34nm to 25nm flash chips used on its solid-state drives and offered some clarification of what the move will mean for customers. As we explained recently, the transition will allow manufacturers to reduce costs and eventually boost capacity, with the downside that SSDs built using 25nm NAND flash may require additional over-provisioning to ensure reliability and thus have less total usable storage space.

    Was that so difficult OCZ? Maybe if you'd done what corsair has you wouldn't be replacing hundreds of SSDs.

    They were trying to pull a fast one and got caught. Doing this amongst techies and enthusiasts will likely get you burned, and they now learned the hard way. Doubt this will be the last time a company tries to get away with something like this. But I am happy that Corsair is being transparent on the matter.

    I know but doing it with an item only enthusiasts and techies would buy is a really stupid decision. Do it with SD card speed ratings and console peripherals.
