seems to me (someone who knows nothing about this), is that the sandforce was not that amazing, but it's all we had.

Ideally, some big tech peeps are working on something for this growing market, to spank these guys and raise the quality bar.

LSI (3Ware) controller with 4 integrated Sandforce 2600 controllers and an ARM processor for handling RAID calculations, all on one chip: onboard, SSD RAID class storage for the OS making 1U servers handle more storage and/or more IO for better performing servers in less space. I'm liking that idea.

LSI makes good stuff, so it seems. I am curious how this will go..

What is more curious is how OCZ seems to have completely botched the acquisition of Indilix, with their Vertex Plus drives being completely unreliable, compared to the original Vertex, and in general, having fallen behind systems that use jMicron controllers (which used to be the laughing stock of the SSD world) in terms of reliability/performance ratio...

OCZ uses Sandforce in its current SSDs(agility 3, solid 3, and vertex 3). The new drives they just announced are their first Indilix drives since the vertex plus gen, I believe, at least for their 2.5 drives.

Pretty much this. Reading reviews I've read a lot of erroneous issues with sandforce based SSDs, even the newer ones.
