Lexar is closing their doors
I was not expecting to see the words “R.I.P. Lexar” anytime soon but it has happened yesterday. Lexar, an American manufacturer of some of the best storage mediums on the planet is being shut down by their parent company Micron Technology. “The decision was made as part of the company’s ongoing efforts to focus on its increasing opportunities in higher value markets and channels,” Micron writes on its blog
It comes of no surprise that this company is based in Milpitas, CA in the famed Silicon Valley which is synonymous blazing tech trails. Lexar has long been my memory card of choice. Their professional grade cards have never failed me. EVER. They were a name that I trusted with keeping my images safe. I am saddened by the news and hope that someone purchases the company and lets it continue to make amazing cards. If you don’t already own their cards, now might be your last chance. Get em’ while their still here.
