    Actually the best would probably have to be the Intel X25-E. Vertex looks good though as it is much cheaper (mlc) and still performs well.

    They're not meant to have insane write times, only read times.

    But why arent they meant to have insane write times? It would be more practical to have write speeds just as fast as read speeds.

    I've not understood that bit yet, it's that the design simply doesn't allow it.

    MLC drives have to wipe the entire chip and re-write all data on that chip, to enter anything new. SLC drives dont have to do this, and thats why they have higher write speeds.
