Client solid state drive (SSD) is a marketing term used by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and value-added resellers (VARs) to differentiate between solid state drives built for consumers and solid state drives built for the enterprise.  For example, client MLC flash drives can only provide 3,000 to 10,000 write cycles, while enterprise MLC cells can handle 20,000 to 30,000 write cycles.
