    That's True.. I was kind of surprised before that WD didn't have any SSD's seeing that they are big in storage. I guess they wanted to wait it out. Lets see what the cost of the drives are going to be like when they are released and also performance and reliability.

    Or the Tsunami took a toll on them and it took that long to recover?
    I believe there drives are made in Japan
