Keep in mind that Samsung is in a fairly uncommon position. They make both NAND and controller so they can cherry pick TLC NAND to be used for their SSDs and they can design the controller to alleviate weaknesses inherent in TLC NAND for improved longevity and performance. I reckon having your own NAND fab is pretty much necessary to replicate the feat meaning either Intel, Crucial, SanDisk or Toshiba. If just any other manufacturer tried to do the same thing Samsung did with cheap, commodity TLC NAND, I think SSDs lasting just a few months to a year would become pretty common.


As for SSD controllers...

Samsung: in-house
Intel: Marvell, SandForce or in-house
Crucial: Marvell, Phison
Plextor: Marvell
SanDisk: Marvell, SandForce or in-house
Corsair: Marvell, SandForce, LAMD (Indilinx, too, I think, before it was acquired by OCZ)
OCZ: Indilinx (in-house), SandForce
Kingston: JMicron, SandForce
Seagate: LAMD
Western Digital: JMicron

Most others use SandForce with a smattering of the occasional JMicron or Phison.

Muskin...great for RAM. Designed for overclockers and do make flash drives. However, that doesn't mean they make good Solid State Drives. That is another ball game. Theirs don't have much of a track record in that area. I have noticed foor example that there are hard drive companies that make horrible solid state drives. Hard Drive companies that have been doing it for a long while too.

I'm under the general impression that people that buy and post on Newegg are divided into two categories --- professionals, and idiots. The idiots make up the vast majority, and if you peer into the details of most complaints, it becomes nearly obvious which ones fall into each category. I take the reviews with a grain of salt, if something has less than a 4.2-4.5 rating with more than 100 reviews, then I'll take that with a much larger grain of salt. LOL.

I really wouldn't worry too much today.
The SF issue was only if you used the drive as the boot Operating System drive.
As a second drive it worked just fine. This issue was patched a long time ago, so I'd pick a drive based on speed vs price vs warranty option.

hahaha! really well said DooRules!! There are many playing tricks in
creating a wrong perception about sandforce with whom the competitors are unable to compete technically wink.gif If the end users really understands his needs & smartly uses these sandforce SSDs, I am sure no problems would arise. Users need to mature wink.gif
