R.I.P Lexar Memory

Lexar - a household brand for storage options  has now decided to shut its doors down after Lexar's parent company - Micron pulled the plug on the brand deeming it to not be as profitable as expected . The memory industry , which is a multi billion dollar industry has so far produced many giants such as Sandisk , Kingston , Sony and many others who have provided various memory solutions ranging from Micro SD cards for Smartphones , SD cards , Compact flash CF , thumb drives , SSD's etc .Lexar , who has been selling its products with most of its consumer products to the photographic community (cards and card readers) will longer sell any Lexar products to customers (although their corporate memory solutions are being sold to Amazon , Google etc . Micron has interests in selling off a portion of its business to potential buyers and therefore if you  plan on buying any Lexar products soon (including their super expensive 500GB CF card unveiled recently) , do it soon as they will go only until stocks last .
