My System Specs

Default

If you ask me it was all downhill once they got out of the memory business. I loved their memory and high binnings. I especially fondly remember the VX series ram and how much abuse they could take while giving great rewards. Putting all your eggs in the SSD market when it has so little share overall makes it a HUGE mistake. Has market saturation even hit 10% for SSD's yet? I'd be surprised if it were even 5%. Don't even get me started on things like the failed from the start Cryo-Z which also cost them a ton of cash/credibility when they received pallets of rusted junk units from China.

If they were to revive their memory line, focus hard on building a decent PSU and continue with SSD development I would say they have a chance. In their current state, it is only a matter of time as you can only bleed so much blood.....
