When I think of MemoRight I think of their long history as a SSD manufacturer. Back when SSDs cost a few thousand dollars MemoRight was a leader in the technology. Since then MemoRight has been fairly quiet and allowed their competition to take a leading role in this market. The fact that we can't find the FTM-25 available for sale really goes to highlight this point. What we really need to see from MemoRight going forward is a distribution model with resellers attached to it.
The SSD marketplace is getting very thick and many companies are trying to do the same thing. Many of these companies are just involved in the short term, when profits are high and reselling existing products with their own label. MemoRight isn't in the short term market; they are one of the first to offer quality SSDs. Making their products available, though, is the only way to remain a player. Hopefully MemoRight can achieve this goal so we can all enjoy their high quality products.
When it comes to the FTM-25 time is running out on this product SKU. Most manufacturers are starting to populate their remaining SF-1200 stock with 25nm flash in an effort to reduce costs and increase profitability. I'm glad to see that MemoRight hasn't made this move yet since the 25nm flash reduces product life expectancy and drastically reduces performance.
The MemoRight FTM-25 is a champ when it comes to performance, one of the last true SF-1200 / 34nm flash drives I may ever review. Still, all of the performance in the world might be packed in this aluminum housing, but it doesn't do anyone any good if you can't actually buy it.
We look forward to seeing the next SandForce based product from MemoRight. I have no doubt that the company is hard at work engineering a SF-2200 based product as I type. MemoRight's strength is in the engineering, a department where so many others don't even turn the lights on.
