This uses MLC Nand memory chip. Hyundai uses TLC, I would get this.

These came free with some ProLiant servers. I dont think they even lasted a year before failing out.

Got one of these for free with some newegg purchases around BF last year. Built the computer this January, drive just died last week. Get what you pay for I suppose.

Care to share?


I bought the 240gb version of this for a laptop in April last year. Still working fine over a year later of daily use.

Just saying "one is Mlc and the other is TLC" doesn't say much. There are many many 3D TLC drives I would trust more than comparably priced MLC drives. I'm this case, the Hyundai drives in question seem like a less secure option, because there's no way to determine whether the drive you get is Toshiba's BiCS 3D TLC, or their older planar TLC (which absolutely is worse than this.)

It was an XPG 128GB from amazon. I got it on May 30 this year. You can search slickdeals for it. The price was $18.99

Put in the context of HP using MLC chips vs unknown Hyundai using TLC does provide justification.

Not really. If the Hyundai could be shown to be using a modern 3D TLC NAND from Toshiba or Micron (like hundreds of brands do, including the better HP drives), then there's no reason to prefer one over the other based on just the type of NAND. The issue is really that the TLC NAND in the Hyundai is possibly 2D/planar. Otherwise, there are other considerations like performance.

That's why Crucial, WD, and Samsung can charge more for their 2.5mm drives, even though they all use TLC.
