A good move for Mushkin imo.

While I believe that 25nm can be used "safely", it seems OCZ kind of poisoned the pot for everyone by releasing it early, without notification, and amidst a myriad of problems.

Mushkin is wise to hold back for now, see how consumers adopt 25nm and reactions; let other companies be the guinea pig, while they come up with a solid roll out plan that can answer consumers questions to problems.

They will have to do it eventually, but hopefully their decision to stick with 34nm for longer means a seamless changeover
