They are not fast ENOUGH to attract the high enthusiast (who went Vertex SLC) and while a good value for an SLC drive....they are not cheap enough to attract the value orientated crowd. Crying shame if that is the case and its not just a case of lack of stock as they swap over to a smaller NAND.
It has definitely been discontinued for the time being.

I'd post more, but I'm not the hardware enthusiast that I used to be.

But since I am involved with inventory management at OCZ Canada, I can confirm that we're not making these drives anymore :(
