    Sad, but not shocking. Hard business, and they seemed to have too many missteps for me, such as wonky firmware issues, and some dud models. They did help push SSD tech and market though.....far as I could tell.

    Hopefully whoever picks em up can continue to push our options forward.

    OCZ did push some new technology. If I am not mistaken they were the first with a PCIe SSD drive. Moved the speed posts a long ways. As a market, it will be dominated by the memory chip makers. Anyone else can be pushed out if the chip makers want to pressure them.
