Over at the SSD Review you can check out PNY's newest SSDs, the TLC based CS1311 and the faster MLC based CS2211 which offers ECC RAM and extra data security features as well as a copy of Acronis. Inside the CS2211 which is the drive featured in this review, you will find an 8-channel Phison PS3110-S10-X controller and 15nm Toshiba MLC, the cache is DDR3L-800, 256MB on the 240GB model and 512MB on the 480GB. This replaces PNY's original Silicon Motion powered XLR8 and it improves upon performance as well as offering a 4 year warranty. Check out all the benchmarks right here.

4 is better than 3 but still
4 is better than 3 but still one short of 5 years. A bit like MPV cars. Everybody make 7 seats but Honda thought once that 6 is better, it wasn’t very bright idea. Seriously tho guarantee on SSDs is a bit of pink unicorn. After initial period of testing when its simple swap for dead model in later years is just pipe dream as vendors put every imaginable obstacle in front of the user (excluding of course enterprise segment). So in the end 3=4=5=[it doesn’t matter], anyone tried Samsung 5 years guarantee after 3 years of intensive use. Try it, you’ll know then.
Running large RAID 10 on Phison PS3110-S10 powered SSDs. Doing great and very happy (after ironing small issue at the beginning) with the performance which leave in the dust anything SF based I was using earlier.
