Not against more variety on the market, but... SSD market is stale for a while. Same products, different stickers. If that is competition then thanks but no thanks.

Zotac is famous for competitive pricing, but they won't come to the market and suddenly dump stuff 50% in price vs competition. It won't happen and as such it makes no difference whatsoever. Stupid times we live in. Every vendor want to make and sell everything. Making one or two exceptional things is not good enough. What counts is making 15 forgettable things and selling them under million of stickers preferably with no warranty to speak of or with rules so complex and convoluted that honoring guarantee is just a scam.
