So the consolidation of SSD makers begin, much like how it happened with HDD makers?

Not that its a bad thing, if the consolidated companies promise to devote more to research and innovating on multiple fronts.

Hopefully Microsoft configures Windows 8 to have more adaptability to SSD's, I have to do a checkdisk on mine every five boots. Or if they make a SSD version of it that works differently - since HDDs are all about queues.

In this case, you get two minor players combining to possibly form a real alternative to the bigger players. Not entirely a bad thing imo, this time the consolidation might add another realistic choice and drive further innovation in the market.

*checking beard growth while waiting for prices to come down enough for SSD upgrades to make more sense than an upgrade in graphics or CPU for gaming experience*

I hope they expand to the consumer market and offer some SSD there, and that’s to heat up the competition and lower the prices.

Casually coming back years later, still SSD make less sense than upgrading other components. My beard is growing quite nicely.
