Best MLC SSD

Since I've learned about the slowing down of TLC drives, what is the best SSD that is cheaper than the 850 evo with MLC? (240gb +, in the UK).

Zotac Premium Edition.

Same internals as the more popular PNY CS2211, which for some reason isn't in the UK. This thing is basically the boundary for SATA. You won't find anything else faster aside from the 850 EVO. Then again, you won't notice the difference in speed. The Phison S10 controller that this uses is also known to be robust and durable. As of right now, the 850 EVO is actually cheaper on Amazon UK.

Crucial BX100.

Uses a proven Mircon SM2246EN controller which is known for its speed while still being reliable. Don't confuse this with the BX200 which is an SSD that is close to garbage.

Both of them are £10~ more, So I guess I will just get the 850 evo then?

If you're fine with TLC, then sure.

Do you not mean MLC since I'm talking about the 850 evo...
