SSDs: Western Digital says “maybe”

Up to this point neither Seagate or Western Digital has decided to dip into the SSD market … yet. Seagate has definitely ruled it out for the time being however Western Digital is open to idea, if an opportunity should present itself. So what does this tell us? WD isn’t investing in SSD development and has no plans to. Perhaps a bit of reverse engineering and tinkering but nothing officially on the books. On the other hand this might open the door for WD to buy up one of the smaller guys and get into the market on a mass scale, providing the price is right. Who knows? Maybe WD and Seagate will get into a bidding war over some small SSD company. Until then, looks like solid state drives will stay pricey. Stay tuned.

    Too bad Western Digital is not investing in this, it is the future. Solid State Drives are far superior to non SSD drives anyday, IMO…
