    Default OCZ Almost Ready to Launch TLC Solid State Drives, 30% Cheaper




    The main advantage that companies have been saying will be possessed by TLC (triple-level cell) solid state drives (SSD) is the decrease in price, something OCZ wants to make the best of.


    Simply put, TLC NAND-based consumer solid state drives will be 30% less pricey than what we have today, and that is compared to MLC drives, which are supposed to be the (much more) affordable option right now.


    Unfortunately, SSDs of this sort will have a lower life expectancy, of as little as four years, so don't expect the drive to outlast you.


    Nonetheless, OCZ is determined to try its hand, especially since more advanced forms of the technology are due out in 2012 (next year).


    After all, HDDs aren't going to be very easy to get for a while (probably), so cheap SSDs could become an appealing alternative, provided capacities are up to par.
