Toshiba is not really a well-known ssd maker. As far as I remember, the last time I looked at one of their deals, I couldn't even find information about what firmware version the drive used and couldn't find a firmware updater on Toshiba's site.
Maybe not their own branded SSD's, but I'm sure they make some / most of the chips in the current SSD's on the market. Toshiba is huge in the flash memory game and has been one of the most innovative in it.
I can't find firmware info either on their site, but here's the support page: http://support.toshiba.com/suppor...xt=3457059
(hope that link works)
Edit: It uses the SandForce controller.
I think it's just bigger outside the US. Here's another review: http://marosama.blogspot.com/2012...0gbsp.html
