I used to buy Crucial M500 and M550 960GB and was quite happy with them (speed, IOPs, etc). I need more drives, similar qualities but I am lost now among various nands, controllers and manufacturing processes 16nm, 20nm.... TLC, 3D TLC, 3D MLC; Toshiba vs Crucial vs Samsung Nand and Controllers of Phison, SIlicon Motion, Marwell ... Seriously, the more I read, the less I know... I came up with some conclusion that Marwell controller and Micron MLC would be good option; anyway ...
1) What drive do you suggest as good replacement ?
2) Also - has 3D TLC reached stability of old planar MLC drives already ?
3) Any of these are good candidates ??
Mushkin Reactor 960GB, SATA (MKNSSDRE960GB) - specs --> Micron 16nm 2D MLC & SM2246EN
ADATA Premier SP610 1TB - specs --> Micron 20nm 2D MLC & SM2246EM (looks same as above but more expensive) ADATA Premier Pro SP920 1TB - specs --> 20nm Micron 2D MLC & Marvell 88SS9189 (price same as samsung 850 pro - pointless to buy) Crucial MX300 1TB, SATA (CT1050MX300SSD1) - specs --> Micron 3D TLC & Marwell 88SS1074 Micron SSD 1100 1TB - specs --> Micron 3D TLC & Marvell 88SS1074 (looks same as above but more expensive) Toshiba OCZ TR150 - specs --> Toshiba TLC 15nm & Toshiba TC58 - (looks like old controller....) Zotac T500 SSD 960GB --> Toshiba TLC & Phison
Thanks a lot !
PS: I need to get more than a dozen... so in a way price does matter...
