Re: STEC 16 GB SSD - SLC or MLC? - 01-31-2009, 06:02 AM
Single Layer Cell is substantially more expensive. A scant 32gb's of SLC goodness is about $420.00 You also get some sizzling performance. (Maybe with my rebate I'll augment my RAID array with a couple of these. Or not. Depends on whether or not the stimulus check gets approved :geek: )

Whereas Multi Layer Cell is fairly cheap, but much slower. Also much cheaper. 32gb of MLC will run you about 75 dollars.

(However that little super talent drive gets smoked by the Runcore, so I'd say buy the Runcore MLC SSD)
