  1. There was a study presented on Google's datacenter SSDs as of late: Conclusions are interesting: SLC not more reliable than MLC 20-63% of SSDs develop a uncorrectable error in the first 4 years and 30-80% develop at least 1 bad block Drives tend to have few or many bad blocks Replacement rates for SSDs is lower, but their rate of errors is higher Anyways, the full study is worth reading. I suppose though that there is no real benefit in keeping SLC.

    I'm curious, we seem to have a considerable market now for MLC and TLC 3D NAND that is typically in the 40 nm range.. for flash size. Is there any 3D NAND plans for SLC? Or is SLC dying to such an extent that there seems to be a loss of interested for SLC in general, even for the most write intensive applications?
  3. There seems to be hardly any SLC SSDs left, particularly on the client side. On the enterprise side, even they seem to be replaced now by the MLC based drives. The only one I could find was the Fujitsu FSXtreme 240GB SLC SSD, which costs about twice as much capacity as a similar 256GB MX100. It's slower though than the 850 Pro. I suspect there simply isn't a large enough market of consumers willing to pay the SLC premium?
