SSDs: NAND MLC vs 3D TLC nowadays

I've just discovered a brand called Blueray that also sells SSD drives. Their drives contains flash units made by samsung. They come in 4 versions: 120GB and 240GB, both in NAND MLC or 3D TLC.


The MLC is always more expensive, but there are some stores in my country that sell the MLC version with only an extra 8€ compared to the TLC versions (around 39€ for MLC 120GB and around 60€ for 240GB TLC).

I've read that MLC is technology supposed to have a significant better reliability over the TLC, but is this still a thing today? Considering I'm planning to buy a SSD for my work laptop, should I go to great lenghts to get the MLC version or is the 3D TLC just as reliable with today's technology?

EDIT: After reading the following link, TLC can be faster or have better sequential read speeds than MLC. Is that always true?

Man, all these ssd architectures are killing me lol.

I believe the pros and cons of MLC vs TLC still hold true for the most part in 2018. I think that if you're gonna upgrade your SSD, then might as well fork over the extra cash for a MLC SSD.
