Toshiba To Buy Lite-On's Storage Division?

Postby Ian on Fri Aug 16, 2019 9:37 am

Interesting news.. Makes you wonder what the future will be for Plextor.

Toshiba, the second-largest player in the global NAND flash market, is planning to take over the storage business unit of Taiwanese Lite-On Technology ahead of its listing scheduled for next year.

Lite-On Technology is the owner of SSD brand Plextor, which is well-known for its inexpensive yet high-performance products. The predecessor of the storage business unit of the Taiwanese company is Plextor, a Japanese company. In short, Lite-On Technology is about to be owned by a Japanese company in nine years.

Yeah. Let's hope its not a repeat of OCZ where they keep the brand running for a year or two and then kill it off.
