TLC kills this. I have a Mushkin Advanced drive that's lived well beyond the 5 year mark, but it's SLC.

Quote :
TLC (Triple Level Cell)
Storing one of three states of data per cell, TLC flash is the cheapest form of flash to manufacture. The biggest disadvantage to this type of flash is that it is only suitable for consumer usage, and would not be able to meet the standards for industrial use. Read/write life cycles are considerably shorter at 3,000 to 5,000 cycles per cell.
Pros:
Cheapest to manufacture which in turn leads to cheaper to market SSDs.
Cons:
Cells will survive considerably less read/write cycles compared to MLC NAND. This means that TLC flash is good for consumer use only.

I call BS, unless u re-purposed an enterprise drive, it might have SLC cache - definitely not SLC NAND.
