Perhaps they feel that it's not yet possible to drop prices enough to make them mainstream and so it's better to go for those who care only about performance, and tempting them to upgrade and only when it is possible to make a "budget" ssd start to sell them. Not sure quite how the process works and where the main cost is but perhaps there also isn't much possible variation in the parts in an ssd and so the main price differentiation is by controller and amount of memory - apart from slc/mlc is there much variation in the memory chips between ssds>
