can u elaborate more on this? im new to the ssd world and dont really understand tlc vs mlc nand yet.
Performance wise, they are very similar. It's really only longevity that is an issue (and a somewhat higher power requirement for TLC drives) but unless you are a "power user" it won't be an issue either. 250GB TLC based drives will last for 7~ years @ 10GB written every single day, every day, for 7 years. MLC based drives will last a lot longer but again, unless you are a "power user" you are likely to never be affected by the shortened lifespan.
