In general, MLC has better reliability than the TLC offerings (which is what most cheaper SSDs nowadays use)

The controller is old tech from 2015 (2nd sata3 controller from intel) but the MLC is decent quality ones which Intel specifies it as not consumer grade, yet with standard endurance tech.

It should last longer than your average cheap MLC drives and most if not all TLC drives combine with Intel enterprise level reliability.

Performance wise it is slower than a 840 Evo, Seagate 600, Ocz Arc100 and pretty much on par with old Micron M500 from the same era.

Here is an interesting read about how one might leverage an enterprise-grade SSD, and the inherent benefits. This is definitely not for everyone, and there are better consumer-grade drives that will overall be a much better value. But for those that are using this in a FreeNAS server as a slog/caching device, or as the article linked explains, a storage space caching drive, this is a better buy than a consumer drive for sure.

Key things to note from the article, this SSD has...
  • a non-volatile write cache
  • enterprise-class endurance

In addition, Intel enterprise drives come with over twice as much over-provisioning than a consumer intel SSD (7% vs 15%) which helps in the case of endurance. The extra bits are for the drive to use internally in the case of any failures.

Heh - that reminds me of the two 20 GB Intel SLC SSDs I bought on a whim 8 years ago. I think I *only* paid $100 for both. I still haven't found a use for them. Slow write speeds, but 100,000 writes (or was it 50,000?) per cell though. They would be perfect for a dash cam, if only they weren't so huge.

What is a cheap filler to get the order over $100?
