The Intel/Micron flash memory consortium has made the bold claim that 3D NAND could lead to 10TB of storage capacity in a 2.5-inch form factor SSD or 3.5TB in an M.2 drive. That sounds pretty amazing so Hardware Editors Leo Waldock and Luke Hill take to the KitGuru airwaves to discuss the ins and outs of MLC, TLC, 3D, fabrication processes and what the heck it all means.

Having tackled the innards of SSD we move on to look at the rise of the M.2 form factor, the apparent stillbirth of SATA Express and what we think of PCI Express as a storage interface.

KitGuru says: We love SSD and rate it as the single best upgrade you can perform on your laptop or PC but a drive failure can be a nightmare. Leo is wary on the subject as he has been bitten by the odd failed drive while Luke goes on the record to state he has never suffered from a failed SSD. Brave man.
