Q:What are NAND Flash SLC, MLC and TLC technologies?

A:
SLC: Single-Level Cell, stores 1 bit of data per cell of flash media
MLC: Multi-Level Cell, stores 2 bit of data per cell of flash media
TLC: Triple-Level Cell, stores 3 bit of data per cell of flash media
In general, the more bits the cell has, the fewer write cycles it will have. For example, a 1-bit SLC cell is good for 100,000 write cycles, a 2-bit MLC cell is good for about 3,000 to 10,000 write cycles, while a 3-bit TLC cell would only have 300 to 3,000 write cycles.  Therefore SLC, MLC and TLC have the price level sequence from high to low
