Don't be fooled, there are only really two storage companies left, WD and Seagate. Keeping Toshiba around made it look a little less like a duopoly, but WD was clearly calling the shots, since they filed a lawsuit anytime Toshiba did something an independent company would do.
Of course, Seagate doesn't have a good presence in the flash world, so maybe a future purchase is in the works. I thought I heard something about Intel shopping around their storage division?
BTW, what is that huge Toshiba chip in that SSD for? Thought tech was getting smaller.
I remember buying a new NEC 200MHz pc with a 2GB SEAGATE hard drive and out of the bat it had 15% bad sectors on it from out of the box. After i went through the warranty process and security deposit cost to sent it back for replacement; Two days after a new one arrived, it got bad sectors on it AGAIN! From then on i only had 1 other seagate drive which also had bad sectors on it and never have I purchased another one. I have actually never seen a Seagate drive without bad sectors on it.
