I wonder which brand has a better reputation.

I think the both are decent companies. If this buyout was to happen, I don't think it would mean much for consumers. Western Digital would probably start to manufacture SSDs under their name and nothing much else would happen. Prices may decrease for SanDisk items possibly. We will see :P
Hopefully it means they will be able to leverage their combine resources to come out with some really awesome products! Only time will tell though!
I could see Western Digital taking over the SSD/HDD market and butting heads with Samsung, as they are powerful in the market. WD will be a larger player in flash storage. There really hasn't been ant definite information yet, so nothing is 100%. We will have to see!

Intel makes products that use Sata, mSata/m.2, and PCI-Express.
All of the following make PCI-Express SSDs:
and many more
Countless companies make M.2 storage solutions which use PCI-express.
Oops, I didn't realize that, fixing it :D Thanks!
I hope this doesn't mean layoffs for employees of either company...
Like the hp massive lay off. that was a total nightmare.
