Western Digital SSD sales fail to impress

Posted on Wednesday, August 01 2012 @ 12:05:48 CEST by


X-bit Labs reports Western Digital shipped a record number of 71 million hard disks in Q2 2012. The company's other product categories seem less succesful, sales of non-HDD units hit one million, this includes SSDs, media players and routers.
Both leading makers of hard disk drives - Seagate Technology and Western Digital - did not recognize the potential of solid-state drives several years ago, which not only allowed companies like OCZ Technology to become strong players on the storage market, but which also thwarts these companies from becoming significant players on the SSD market at the moment. In fact, sales of WD's solid-state drives were much less than a million of units last quarter.

"We shipped one million of non-HDD units, including solid state drives, media players and routers," said Stephen Milligan, the president of Western Digital, during a conference call with financial analysts.
