So for an low end to average user ignore MLC vs TLC?

Also what is driving the prices on SSD lately? Glad to see it happening but wondering if I should hold off to see if there are further price drops.

Is the technology that this drive uses decent? The newer drives say 3D nand. This says MLC. What's the difference?

Short answer: MLC is expensive, old tech but longer life span. TLC is newer, cheaper but life.

Both MLC and TLC drives are about the same price.

Use a brand that has a good warranty like Intel and Samsung.

Long answer: Read this to know everything about SSD.

I'm looking at the linked page. It looks like the table at the end is saying that MLC is faster and has a longer life than TLC. Am I reading it wrong or did you reverse the names in your comment?

It is the other way around. Generally, TLC is cheaper to manufacture but is slower and has lower endurance compared to MLC.
