[QUOTE=Wischmop;2706158]And most I have seen use Toshiba-NANDs.
I take often a look at reviews with SSDs that are avaible in Germany, canÂ´t remember one with Hynix-NANDs[/QUOTE]
That’s easy to explain. South Korean SSD manufacturers prefer Samsung chips. US SSD manufacturers prefer Intel-Micron chips. What you said by “most” cannot possibly be most. Try to find all the names of SSD brands, reviewed or not. There’s at least one existing thread for that purpose.
Toshiba’s NAND quality has been clearly far superior to that of Hynix, which suffered from years of massive identity crisis and wasn’t sufficiently independent to decide on large-scale new investment into NAND production as Samsung was. AMD was once the world’s No. 1 or No. 2 NAND producer. There’s no AMD on any list now.
It is very recent Hynix began NAND production in mass quantity that can be compared to players like Micron.
Members who frequently visit websites like this read reviews written by early adopters, power users, enthusiats, or at least by those who test products aware that many of the readers would like to see reviews from their points of view, not the average consumer’s. It’s natural people who most frequently and most aggressively post here to buy OCZ’s and Plextor’s and Corsair’s for SSD, and Pioneer and Plexfor for Blu-ray. Hynix has not only been late, it has been producing mostly lower-quality chips.
By the way, what I said about SK-hynix’s marketshare was about this:
It’s not. And NAND is not only used in retail SSD products. Retail SSD products account for only a very tiny percentage of the total, and its share is almost negligible compared to SSD shipped to OEM. SSDs used in desktop PC today may seem a lot, but it’s still a tiny percentage of the whole compared to HDDs. NAND has been used in memory cards like CF and microSD, USB sticks, eMMC as used in smartphones and tablets, cars, watches, TVs, just about everything. NAND used in USB sticks and smartphones require far less up-to-date performance.
