"Micron's primary competitors are Samsung, STEC and Intel. (Micron partners with Intel at the NAND wafer level, but competes with Intel at the drive/controller level.)

"Micron's RealSSD P300 SSDs use single-level cell (SLC) NAND technology and the company's ONFI 2.1 34-nanometer process technology. The 2.5-inch drives are available in 50GB, 100GB and 200GB capacities."
