Sorry if this has been posted but this is the first time I'm hearing of this.  I really love these Lexar Drives, especially the Lexar Twist and  some of the S75 USB's.  They were reasonable and easy to get at my local store, or online.  The Lexar Twist has a twisting cover that allows for the End of the part that goes into your pc to be fully protected, or at least better than most I've seen without a Loosable cover.

The Lexar division was bought out including the name. I think you will still see Lexar flash drives, only not those made by Micron. Will the quality be the same? Who knows. But as a side note, I have dirt cheap flash drives that have not failed. It gets to a point where NAND is NAND.

Micron purchased Lexar in 2006.

Doesn't surprise me that much seeing as an 8 Gb flash drive can sell for as little as $6, while 8 Gb of DRAM can sell for over $100...

DRAM prices are kind of nuts right now.
