MLC and TLC are crap already.. QLC will be the worst really...

MLC and TLC are crap already.. QLC will be the worst really... .. SSD NAND has to disappear quickly. Completely unreliable. Anything other than SLC NAND SSD drives is just unusable and can't be trusted.

MLC, TLC and now QLC just fail quickly, they are cheap as hell to make it really is manufacturers selling defective products to increase profit.

Unfortunately is a chicken & egg issue with 3D XPoint BUT that is the only technology for SSD reliable enough to forget HDUs. Intel and Micron should start manufacturing 3D XPoint in large quantities and sell it at half the cheapest NAND prices to boost sales and kill the NAND market. THAT is the only strategy to change things. 3D XPoint must succeed and replace all the NAND crap and then HDUs too. For that to happen Intel and Micron must start selling some millions of units at a loss then when people would be in a rush buying 3D XPoint at cheaper prices than NAND units obviously Intel and Micron would get huge profits on very large quantities .. the NAND market would be taken by storm by that strategy. That is the only strategy for Intel and Micron to follow. Anything else would fail.
