[title] Solid State drives
[* icon_note] If you are using a newer system this is very much suggesteda suggested upgrade. '''While this upgrade is worth it for the speed, not everyone wantswill want an SSD.''' You also need to be aware dditionalthere are additional steps to enable TRIM will have to be performed that are'''will not covered in this guidebe covered'''. Every distro is going towill be different in how you configure TRIM.
[* icon_caution] While an SSD makes sense if you do not need a lot of mass storage '''some some SSD's do not play nice with Linux TRIM support.''' Because of this youTRIM. You will need to research both the drive AND kernel to see if it will cause a problemproblem in Linux. If there are ANY reported problems pick a different drive unless you have aknow the workaround or know the specifics of the issue in questionand can fix it.
[* black] '''16-64GB:''' You will not see these produced by the mainstreammost SSD vendors anymore. This is simplyanymore due to production costthe cost and lack of demand. You may find these in used systems, but you will stillnot find these from previous years of production and some ofnew at this point. Some Chinese vendors still make these, but the more generic SSD's like Transcend. However, the primary players no longer manufacture thesereliability of these is questionable at best. '''Unless you have to use one of these, thesethey make no sense.'''
[* black] '''128GB:''' While these are still viable for lighter usersOS drives only, they are also the smallest potentially viable size you can go for. If you can afford towill readily find made. Try and get a 256GB class SSD if you will be better offcan. The cost of a 256GB SSD isn't that much moreis negligible. '''While these are better then the 64GB SSD's, these do not make as much sense seeing as 256GB SSD's are so cheap now.'''
[* black] '''256GB:''' These are the current best value size you can get for the money, at leastmoney right now. These are still going to be small,on the small side but these are fine if you manageproperly manged with storage. '''This is the space correctly you will not have as muchbest size option available right now. This should be the minimum size of a problem as you will have with 128GB SSD's.SSD bought now.'''
[* black] '''512GB:''' While these drives are still expensive they are much cheaper then they used to be. The price is certainly more reasonable then it waswere a year ago. Theseago as primary drives. You can be bought at very reasonable prices if younow buy 512GB SSD's for a realistic price. You just have to shop around for themaround. '''These drives used to be too expensive to recommend but withrecommend. With how cheap they are now, thesethey make some sense nowsense. They are still expensive but a lot more reasonable.'''
[* black] '''1TB:''' These are the largest drives you have as a consumer right now. The only downsudedownside is they are not good for price per GB right now, even withnow. The price drops. I don't expect thishas to get better anytime soondrop a lot for these. Right now if you are concerned about price, stick to 256GB for an SSDthe 256-512GB SSD's in the meantime. '''Right now, these drives are too expensive to recommendrecommend for most people.'''
[* black] '''2TB:''' 2TB drives are fairly recent on the consumer side. Due to being fairly recentso new they are even more expensive then the 1TB drivesdrives were. Right now it's in your best interestbetter to wait for the prices to drop to a price point that's sanesane right now. '''While 2TB SSD's are nice, they don't make sense price wisewise yet. They're too expensive unless you need them right nowfor anyone but the rich.'''
