Worked for the Government for 8 yrs. We got a government contracted buy of a ton of MPC (MicronPC, now Micron) T3200 laptops. Issued them out and literally within a day they started coming back from our detachments, literally smoking, hot as heck. No support whatsoever, and then the company went bankrupt and voided their warranties. We got stuck with piles of Micron Junk. I WILL NEVER buy anything from them again, PERIOD. (Especially, and SSD) Yeah right, go get some other sucker to trust their data to your extremely sub-par company. NOT I.

Respectfully Former EOD,
Paul

Micron's current SSDs are among the best in their class. Whether or not you trust them doesn't refute that fact.

for the past year, Ive only seen SSD anouncements I never get to see in the real world. All vaporware to me.

Having said that, you actually buy a lot of Micron SSD, you just dont know.

they are charging wayyyy tooo much for these drives. If they want enterprises to make the jump you have to have more than just features. Changing over to whole new storage tech isn't something any company is going to do with out a huge consideration of the cost. How much does it cost to make one of these? I would like to see how much profit are they making from charging a premium for SSD's. I don't know of a single company that has swung over to SSD yet. The company I am with SSD's are not even a consideration due to their subpar performance & $$$. Not talking about the SSD I/O thru put but other factors related to SANS.

MPC started out as a Micron's PC subsidiary under it's own Micron brand name but it got spun off into it's own company pretty quickly, thus the change of name to MPC and change of marketing focus from consumer PC's to government contract PC's. So technically, Micron has never had anything to do with MPC, and I'm pretty sure at this point they have since gone out of business, having been liquidated under bankruptcy.

I do wonder why Micron released this product under the Micron name and not the Crucial brand.

Almost every SSD announcement that I've read (including the past year) did launch. They generally don't launch with the announcement, but within a few months of it.
