Darn, I'm too late for this deal.
My friend is looking for a reliable 240GB SSD for ~$150. Are there any deals available now? I do not have any SSD drives, so my experience is somewhat limited.

SLC (single layer) is the fastest, most reliable, and most expensive.
MLC (multi-layer) is in the middle.
TLC (triple layer) is the worst. Higher power consumption, worse reliability, worse speed.
MLC is a confusing acronym because it makes it sound like it's more complex than TLC, but it's not.

Mine is still at 2.15 as well; have no desire to update the firmware on my OS drive unless there is some tangible improvement, and even then I'm weary on risking it.

ooo i dont care about the tiers on ssd. its not like i am going to do anything that will make a big differences. i use my comp to play games, surf the net and watch movie. any type of ssd is a significant increase to mechanical hd. a couple seconds slower/faster doesnt matter to me.

There's always something new they find in regards to Sandforce issues....http://www.anandtech.c
Best of luck if you want to try your luck with this drive.
If all you want to do is grow your e-peen by being able to bench a data transfer - by all means this will be a faster drive - but for day in, day out RELIABILITY and PERFORMANCE - I know I'd rather have my data on a drive that has a quality track record than roll the dice.
