Newegg's SSD TLC Obfuscation Tags: SSD Components Memory Storage Last response: December 15, 2012 8:21 PM in Storage Share Haf912 December 15, 2012 7:25:09 PM I noticed today Newegg has changed the way they list their SSDs - In SSD Item listing the details (tech specs) tab they used to list Memory Components: eMLC MLC, TLC, or SLC - This describe the life expectancy of the drive. SLC - Long Life eMLC - Long Life (enterprise MLC) MLC -Average (most SSD drives fall here) TLC - Short (new drives like Samsung SSD 840 ) - Which is on special today $149... samsung-ssd-840-testing-the-endurance-of-tlc-nand NOW: Newegg has removed the Memory Components catagory in the details (tech specs) tab for the item listings. AND removed the TLC checkbox in Power Search: Memory Components. They only list: Any, eMLC, MLC, SLC - My guess is smart shoppers are causing poor sales for the short lifespan SSDs, so they just removed the catagory to solve the problem - (To there small credit if you Power Search and click the MLC checkbox - the TLC are not folded into the listing. - they can only be Power Searched by checking the Any checkbox . Word to the wise shoppers...
