    Good. OCZ was an SSD pioneer and it would stink for the name to just die.

    Too early to tell if this is good news or not. Sounds like marketing strategy regardless of future quality. OCZ already has a well known reputation, throwing the name out the door would have been shooting themselves in the foot.

    I'm glad to hear this, I wouldn't buy a Toshiba SSD, I just wouldn't, but OCZ I would, I just hope they've kept the same guys who helped make the Vertex and Vector drives, they are awesome and it would be sad to see a name like OCZ, who really pushed for faster SSD's just die out like it did.

    I like OCZ drives. Although a lot of people badmouthed them for poor reliability among other things, I've never experienced any issues with them at all and I've dealt with quite a few of them.

    Does this mean OCZ's other business sectors will be Toshiba as well, or just the SSD sector.
