That's why I couldn't get a 1.92 TB USB drive at Fry's
That explains why I couldn't buy a USB drive at my local Fry's this past weekend - HP is buying up all of the cheap Flash using the consumer grade MLC rather than the Enterprise grade eMLC or SLC. I'm being sarcastic for those who might get bent out of shape by my comparison of USB drives with Flash vs the Flash used with SSD drives - yes, both use Flash technology but in different form factors. Heck, HP even knows better than the SSD vendor and is having them cut back on over-provisioning capacity - Whatever it takes to get the headline I guess. You know how there is a uproar in the grocery store over food makers using words like Lite, Lo-Calorie, Fat Free, Low Fat, Orgranic, etc? We need a oversight organization to straighten out all of the "marketing" liberty these vendors are taking with "Flash". All "Flash" is not created equal and I think this HP 3PAR may not be all that it claims to be.
