You may not have heard of MemoRight before, but they have been building SSDs for a very long time. We first looked at one of their products in 2008 when they were designing their own controllers and breaking new ground in the market. Back then SSDs were barely a myth and quite mysterious.
Fast-forward to 2011 and the SSD market has exploded with new and old companies fighting for supremacy. Solid state drives are now sold on retail shelves and at price points that are pushing them into commodity status. At this time many enthusiast computer people have already owned at least two solid state drives and feel that the technology is the only way to boot their PC. It's true there have been hurdles, a few eggs tossed on faces and more than a handful of ticked off people, but hearing about such issues is becoming less common.
One of the biggest challenges for consumers has been companies releasing products into the wild before the products have been deemed problem free. A few companies like MemoRight have taken a different path and waited until their products were right before going to market. This has led to several lost sales, but at the same time kept their name in pristine condition.
The only thing worse than having your name tarnished is not having a name at all. This is what MemoRight is looking to change in 2011. The company doesn't make consumer products per se, they make products that are a step above the average. Because of this, many of MemoRight's products have cost considerably more than their consumer competitors, but that is now changing. MemoRight is ready to get in the fight and challenge the consumer market, but do so on their own terms. The same high build quality is present in the FTM Plus that we are looking at today, but the price point is now placing this product right at the bottom end of the consumer market.
