    I thought Apple SSDs were Samsungs. :confused:

    Anyway, I believe they're MLC.

    They changed this year... They used Samsung before~ I thought because Samsung is crap =.="

    I'm pleased about this SSD... Startup just about 15sec~ Pretty good!!

    But I just want to know more about this SSD, because everyone hate to choose it from Apple Store...

    Pretty sure if you search then others believe Samsung is the brand. They're MLC though afaik.

    MLC. There is no 256GB SLC for any brand and the 128GB SLCs are about 2K right now.

    SLCs are faster and more reliable (note that the hardware, I believe, are the same, it's just different how the controller handles it...storing one bit in one cell as opposed to two bits per cell [which is why there's such a thing as 256GB MLC and only 128GB SLC {hey, isn't that how the iPhone and the iPod touch work???}]). MLCs have four voltage levels to check when writing while SLC only has two.

    Okay then. You're probably right. But your question has been answered so there you have it.
