    Transcend SuperMLC technology trumpeted as SLC alternative

    Offers cost effective yet "nearly equivalent performance to SLC NAND flash".

    Has a tradeoff in terms of half the capacity? I'd say that's pretty much a real problem there people

    That's the difference between SLC and MLC though, always has been - you trade-off speed/endurance and capacity.

    Isn't this what others have been doing for the last couple of years as in a write cache.

    Yeah just this is a full drive used that way, as I understand it. I'd be interested to know if there are any significant differences at a low level between this psuedo-SLC and actual SLC. It could just be that 'true' SLC goes through a different validation process and is lower-volume and therefore maybe more expensive?

    I think I would prefer a drive which does this but but then moves the most used long term data onto the other levels of the cell. TLC has better read rates as far as I know.

    A bit like an sshd in a way.
