Anandtech review [anandtech.com]
3800 rated at 4DWPD w/ 64bit Toshiba 19nm eMLC ( bit slower, but could last decades for regular consumer! LOL )
3700 rated at 1DWPD w/ 128bit Toshiba 19nm eMLC

Lightly interested in these due to the Power Loss Protection. While it may not be as robust as certain Intel's, nobody else is. Anybody have any experience with this and power outages/data corruption, or in depth reviews. Trying to figure out effective price points guessing at remaining life span - obviously the 100 GB one is going to be too big a risk, but if you downgrade a size due to being used, and then add in the power loss protection, might not be a bad deal. Any thoughts (and reps for saving me from recreating the wheel)?

I have all my critical data sync'ed with Dropbox / Google Drive / Box / Onedrive. That's more cloud storage than I ever need. I added the $5 protection just in case - personally think that if the drive is not going to fail in a year, it's not going to fail in many years given that these are enterprise-grade SSDs. Also, I regularly mirror my entire drive (except for those folders synced with the cloud!) with a hard disk.

Also looked at the review [tweaktown.com]for the 3600 (which isn't as good as the 3800) and it seemed decent, so I jumped on it. Already shipped with tracking number.

tl; dr $50 for 200GB, enterprise-grade level SSD is a steal in my book, so long as you have good data redundancy, you can be a brave heart.

Thanks. Got my 480GB for under $100 (have to pay tax). Will add to a LVM with another 480 and back up nightly to a RAID 10. Now just have to come up with an off site solution....

I bought a refurbished m225 256GB crucial ssd way back in 2010 and it is still kicking and running. In its early days i use to do a lot of writes. Now it is on a cheapo laptop that is hardly used so it doent see much writes anymore.

Seems like a good deal. I'd bite, but the write IOPS look to be really low to me. Only 13,000 on the 480gb version, even less on the 240 (only 5,000).

Care to share little more info about "IOPS Really low" compare to?

I could be wrong, but according to Storagreview.com [storagereview.com] it seems better than most of none eMLC model. ( Even 3600 series been an older model, plus there are new firmware update after review date )

Well, that review is actually for the 3600, which actually list much better random read write numbers than the 3700. Truth be told, though, my experience with ssd's is fairly limited (I have an evo 850 in my home desktop, and a Carbon x1 ultrabook from work) so I can't say whether the average user would notice the difference really.

Sometimes these numbers aren't really indicative of real world experience. And even so, the listed IOPS don't say whether they are for qd1 or qd32, which makes a big difference in reported iops numbers. My evo 850 only gets a read/write of 10k/40k at QD1, but gets 98k/88k at QD32 (posted numbers).

I mean, it's probably fine, 90% or more users probably wouldn't even notice the difference, if any, in day to day use. It's just that the low posted numbers, which aren't well defined as to how they were derived, along with a lack of side by side bench testing with drives I know and can extrapolate out from, makes me a little leery.

But damn, at that price, i'm tempted to just pull the trigger and get it to bench it and put up a review, lol. $90 for a 480 is pretty solid. But on the other hand an eco3 is only 512 is only $110 right now, and these drives just keep getting cheaper and bigger.

So many decisions.

I think you are comparing apple to orange?

Enterprise drive is like a truck that able to tow heavy loads all over alps, reach max torque/hp under low rpm without damaging its engine. In unlikely event if sudden lost of power, data will still be preserve. ( its like having a spare fuel tank, in case it run out of gasoline )

Consumer drive such as Samsung evo 850, more or less like a sports coupe, very fast with limit passengers on board, if tow heavy loads across mountains, its engine may not last very long.

That is why under Corp environment, they generally do not purchase consumer drive even if they are cheaper and "faster". Smilie

True that. The main selling point here is endurance rather than speed, but still my application for it would be in a desktop use environment, so it's factoring into my thinking. But you are correct - get this because it will last a decade or more (hopefully) not because it will be an uber fast ssd.

Still and all, the more I think of it, I'm not sure most folks would notice too much a differnce in the day to day.

Newegg also has new PNY CS1211 240GB, for the same $54.99 price (or the newer CS1311 for $61.99), and new Silicon Power 240GB SATA III TLC SSD for $54.99 + $0.99 shipping.

PNY: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Pro...6820178938
Silicon Power: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Pro...6820301313

Newegg's eBay store also has refurb OCZ Saber 1000 Series 240GB (SB1CSK31MT560-0240) for $44.99 + $6.99 shipping = $51.98.
EDIT: ...and it's now on the Newegg web site, here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Pro...6820228158

Alternately, there's an eBay vendor I've never heard of, but with excellent feedback rating, selling refurbished Crucial M500 240Gb MLC SSDs for $49.99 w/ free shipping.

Decisions, decisions! What do y'all think?

Be little caution, although Saber 1000 is enterprise grade, but NOT eMLC.
