[QUOTE=tmc8080;2710228]Hmm, failing SSD companies are likely to be bought out by bigger stable companies like hard drive makers and FLASH memory makers… flash memory excluding SSD drives is still on a trajectory to post record sales.
Pricing of SSD drives has been the biggest nail in the coffin of these companies for the last 7-10 years. The 10x multiple (compared to hard drive prices)won’t stand anymore with other types of flash memory going into a range that makes SSD drives look well overpriced even if you factor in the fact that SSD memory chips are supposed to be AS durable as hard drive substrate for long term storage & better read/write benchmarks than regular flash and hdd.[/QUOTE]
Are you suggesting that SSD products on the market as of 2013 are very much overpriced compared to other types of products based on NAND chips? What are they?
