I don't think the 311 has any over-provisioning (other than the 7%
from GB -> GiB conversion). I believe it is an X25-E with only 5
channels populated. The upcoming enterprise models are MLC based and
have greater over-provisioning AFAIK.
The 20GB 311 only costs ~ $100 though. The 100GB Intel 710 costs ~ $650.
The 311 is a good choice for home or budget users, and it seems that
the 710 is much bigger than it needs to be for slog devices.
