The well-known and respected Plextor brand, associated with its once popular computer drives, is disappearing from the market.
Kioxia Corporation, a Japanese electronics company that produces computer memory, has just announced the end of an era: SSD drives with the well-known and popular Plextor brand, which undoubtedly has a cult status among computer hardware enthusiasts, will soon disappear from stores.
The Plextor brand disappears from the market
Plextor, a brand associated with the production of popular HDD and SSD hard drives, disappears from the market after almost 40 years of presence. It was created in 1985, so it can be remembered, among others, by today’s people in their thirties, for whom the 1990s were the period when they acquired their first personal computer.
The Japanese company Kioxia has thus ended a certain stage during which Plextor-branded hard drives gained cult status. Now they will be replaced by new SSSTC (Solid State Storage Technology Corporation) own-brand media.

The sad end of the iconic brand, after all, may mean good news for those slightly less sentimental people who primarily want to look for favorable prices when purchasing SSD media that have been getting cheaper for some time. Plextor drives are now disappearing from stores en masse, which probably means the beginning of a series of big promotions. This is a good opportunity to take possession of computer equipment for the last time, which will soon become a thing of the past.
Kioxia Corporation is a Japanese electronics company that produces computer memories. It formerly operated under the name Toshiba Memory Corporation and was established as a result of its separation from Toshiba in April 2017.
