This is a great drive for that price, especially considering the issues surrounding the low-price leader, the Kingston V300. (They switched to using slower Async NAND in their drives, nearly halving their speeds.)
AFAIK, Crucial / Micron have their own NAND fabs (used to, possibly still have a joint venture with Intel).
