I do hope that the following excerpt from the "About Lexar" statement remains with the new owners...

"Lexar’s products design has been tested by Lexar Quality Labs (a laboratory with more than 1,200 digital devices) to ensure the performance, quality, compatibility and reliability."

Cheers

Dennis

Yes.

That's not to say that they weren't previously cheap Chinese chips.

Well, they seemed pretty good before so I'm guessing they were higher grade Chinese or maybe even Korean chips.

Their USB card reader has worked great for me.

Previously, Lexar is the retail division of Intel-Micron, which is one of the only four NAND flash manufactures capable of making mass flash production. I believe most of their product's controller is by SMI or Phison as they don't own their internal card controller development. IM decided to sell Lexar (I don't know why). With Lexar acquired by Longsys, the flash will have to come from one of the 4 flash manufacture: IM, Toshiba/WD/Sandisk, Samsung, Hynix. Controller however, we will have to see. Personally, I will stick with flash card that made by manufacture that also product their own flash, such as Samsung, Sandisk/WD, OSC/Toshiba

And FYI, China as of Jan 2018 is still no capable of mass product flash memory (NAND) at all. To archieve the quality level of the big 4, it will still take a long while. Chines however can make very good controller these days by reverse engineering. So I am not surprised Lexar will use a Chinese controller + flash from one of the big 4s.
