    "Where a traditional two-level cell (TLC) flash module can store two distinct states, equivalent to a binary 0 and a binary 1, and TLC stores three states, QLC - as the name suggests - stores a total of four states."

    Erm isn't that 8 and 16 states for TLC and QLC (3 bits and 4 bits respectively)?

    In other words, don't hope for competition to force the price of the 4TB Samsung Sata SSD or the 2TB Samsung M.2 SSD down any time soon.

    Doesn't increasing the number of bits per cell reduce the life span? If so will that have a small or large effect on lifespan?
