What does MLC mean?

Multi-Level Cell (MLC) ) flash is a type of NAND flash memory. MLC memory stores more than one bit in each cell. By storing more bits per cell, a Multi-Level Cell memory card will achieve slower transfer speeds, higher power consumption, and lower cell endurance than a Single-Level Cell memory card. The advantage of Multi-Level Cell memory is the lower manufacturing cost. MLC flash technology is used mostly in standard consumer memory devices.
