Goodbye Lexar?
« on: June 27, 2017, 04:24 PM »
Micron Technology, the owner of the Lexar brand, announced that it will shut down Lexar.  No date for the closure was given but Micron also said it was looking to sell Lexar.

If Lexar shuts down, the bad news for Nikon users is that Sony will have a monopoly on XQD cards. Right now, Lexar XQD cards and card readers are cheaper and faster than Sony.

The Lexar name has been bought by Longsys, a Chinese manufacturer of consumer flash storage products.

The Longsys press release states that it bought the Lexar trademark and branding rights but makes no mention of buying any Lexar technology or patents. So it seems that only the Lexar name will appear on some Longsys products.
