It comes in both SLC and MLC variants, and with this little nugget of info on their own homepage:
"For OS installations, SLC version is recommended"

I'm sure it's just as capable as their original Jmicron based JMF601 series of drives, on which Windows Vista and 7 could not even be installed because it had so poor 4k write performance that it got "delayed write failed" errors during the installation of the OS.
Nevermind how poorly it behaved once you actually managed to get it installed!
