# Thread: Toshiba announces Q300 SATA III SSD series with 15nm flash

1. ## Toshiba announces Q300 SATA III SSD series with 15nm flash

Q300 series uses 3-bit-per-cell TLC, Q300 Pro series drives use 2-bit-per-cell MLC flash.

The 142% price increase from the 480GB to the 960GB is a joke, if we can buy two 480GB ones plus a cheap RAID card then Tosh can dam sure make it for less.

Maybe it's a typo? 135.00 would make more sense.

I have solved the complicated math for Toshiba. 97*2 = 194 then 235-194 = 41 of which 41 = a 120GB Q300 SSD so giving a total of 480+480+120=1080GB which is 1080-960 = 120 GB more storage space, or the 120GB can be uses as an external SSD.
