Make or break time for OCZ... they need someone smart to steer the company over the next two years. Right now OCZ's brand image is significantly tarnished... I mentioned this to Rob when this subject came up.

I keep an eye on sites like Fatwallet and Slickdeals.net. Anyone familiar with OCZ knows their modus operandi is to use steep MIRs and brief promotions with retailers in order to grab customers with spur of the moment buys, or yank people off the fence.

Over the last several months I've seen many OCZ deal threads on those sites, and every one ends up with a "don't buy" tone or general consensus for OCZ SSDs. When a general consumer (Not a tech enthusiast, not a geek, but a general Joe public) recognizes the OCZ name as a brand to avoid for SSDs, the company has a big problem. The next two years will probably decide if they can fix it or start to flounder.
