Toshiba Looking to Buy-out OCZ's Consumer SSD Business

Once a leading SSD vendor, OCZ is finding itself in trouble from two fronts, an increasingly competitive market landscape with the entry of big names such as Samsung, Seagate, and WD; and legal irritants with the SEO. The company is reportedly putting its consumer SSD business up for sale, and Toshiba is emerging to be a front-runner for buying it out. Such a deal could see Toshiba acquiring OCZ's consumer SSD division, and the various brands associated with it, including its Indilinx-Barefoot derived SSD controllers, which are still quite competitive. SSDs could proliferate further with the upcoming SATA-Express standards.

OCZ earnings call today, stock hasn't moved up, even with that rumor .. so I guess we'll see later today whether this is true.

weird, OCZ dropped all(most) of their products to focus on SDDs but it looks like it hasn't worked out. Whats left? Just PSU's?..

Western Digital's new rival Eastern Analog will purchase them for a higher price.
