With BH-5 almost all gone from retail, it means CH-5 is the next best thing, so with demand for CH-5 going up over the next 12 months I guess, would this mean CH-5 prices will go up as well ? Or is supply of CH-5 in abundance so as to meet the anticipated demand for CH-5?

What I'm asking is should we buying up CH-5 while the prices are down too ? :)

Winbond are roumored to be going into the TFT (LCD display) market and dropping DRAM...looks like CH5 is doomed also if that is true.

Has every one else noticed the frantic BH5 buying going on...i gave mine away..LOL

Ebay will have some serious auctions going on soon with big reserves..LOL
