    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.

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