    SSDs have limited program/erase or P/E cycles. In this video I discuss the life expectancy of SLC, eMLC, MLC and TLC drives, as well as covering wear levelling, over provisioning, and TBW, PWB and DWPD endurance ratings. Note that the data presented in this video was obtained from a great many sources, including all major SSD manufacturers, and was up-to-date as of 25 March 2017. Note also that the second SSD listed in the table of client SSDs at c.6:41 is a Samsung 850 Pro, not a Sandisk 850 Pro (which does not exist).

1st Place & Best Value For the Money ~Samsung 850 EVO: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00OBRE5UE/?... Best Server or NAS Drive ~Crucial MX200: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00RQA6E20/?... Best Budget Drive ~Crucial BX100: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00RQA6M5Y/?... ~~Video Details~~ If you're looking for the best SSD for the money in 2016, I have done all of the work for you. I created this Solid State Buyers Guide with all of the necessary benchmark data and real world tests so that you don't have to spend hours scouring through all of the manufacturer's websites and 3rd party benchmark sites. All of the data is right here for you to make an informed buying decision. I narrowed the roundup to the top drives from Samsung and Crucial. All of the other drives on the market right now are either way too overpriced, or not even worth looking at. The 5 drives I compared in the review are: 1: Samsung 850 EVO 500GB (1st Place and Best in Class Winner) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00OBRE5UE/?... 2: Samsung 850 PRO 500GB 500GB(Top Performer in Synthetic Tests) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00LF10KTO/?... 3: Crucial's New MX200 500GB(Best in Data Reliability) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00RQA6E20/?... 4: Crucial MX100 512GB http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KFAGCUM/?... 5: Crucial BX100 500GB(Best Budget Drive) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00RQA6M5Y/?... I broke the winners down into 3 categories: 1- Most People - Average Users For Most People that are looking for the best performance and most space for the money to upgrade their desktop or laptop, the answer is clear. Buy the Samsung 850 EVO in the largest size you can afford and don't look back 2- Server Machines or NAS If the drive is destined for a server or network attached storage device where performance is not at all as important as data reliability, then the Crucial MX200 is the clear winner. While not a great performance drive by any means, it includes an on device RAID like data redundancy system called RAIN to help keep your data safe. It also has power loss protection to protect against data loss when the power goes out 3- Extreme Budget If Your Budget is tight and you just want the most space possible for your money, but still want a newer, great performing drive, Crucial's BX100 is a great drive. It actually out performed the new MX200 in most of the real world benchmarks, making it a great entry level drive. ~~Support the Channel~~ + Subscribe & Hit the Thumbs-Up Button (This Helps the Video Show up in Search Results) + Use My amazon and ebay links + Throw Some Bills in the Tip Jar.
