RE: Forget

The idea of write-once (or write very few) and read-many has been around for a while now in the cheapest of the cheap TLC NAND SSDs, but it's not something that any audio manufacturer thought up on their own. And yes, it makes sense in those applications that require very few writes.... like music files that are written to SSD once and read many times when played back. Samsung EVO series are a perfect example of low cost TLC SSD which are perfectly suited for low duty cycle writes and many reads.

Don't even get me started on the 'audio grade' SSD snake oil !! Melco isn't the first audio company to put an 'audio grade' sticker or stamp of approval on their SSDs to make them appear 'special'. ;-)
