[title] Solid State drivesDrives
[* icon_note] If you are usingicon_reminder] SSD's make a newer system this is very muchlot of sense as primary boot drive or a suggested upgrade. '''Whilemain drive in a laptop. While this upgrade is worth it for the speed, not everyone will want an SSD.''' You also need to be aware there are additional steps to enable TRIM will have to be performed that '''will not be covered'''. Every distro will 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
case some SSD's do notDO NOT play nice with Linux TRIM. You will need to research both the drive AND kernel to seeSSD if it will cause a problem in Linuxhas such problems. If there are ANY reportedKNOWN problems you should pick a different driveSSD unless you know theof a workaround or the specifics ofon the issue and canhow to fix it.
[* icon_note] A lot of people run into an issue here because they do not know how to enable TRIM in Linux or neglect this part. '''Before you decide on if you want an SSD, look into the procedure on enabling TRIM for your Linux distro first.''' This is not enabled by default in most distros due to problems with TRIM and Linux, especially on certain SSD's.

[* black] '''16-64GB:''' You will not see these produced by most SSD vendors anymore due to the cost and lack of demand. You may find these in used systems, but you will not find these new at this point. Some Chinese vendors still make these, but the reliability of these is questionable at best. '''Unless you have to use one of these, they make no sense.'''
[* black] '''128GB:''' While While these are still viable for OS drives onlydrives, they are also the smallest size you will readily find madefind. Try and get a 256GB SSD if you can. Thecan since the cost of a 256GB SSDdifference is negligibleso negligible between 128GB vs 256GB. '''While small, these are better then the 64GB SSD's, these do not make as much sense seeing as16-64GB SSD's. The problem now is 256GB SSD's are so cheap nowthis size is nearly pointless.'''

[* black] '''256GB:''' These are the best value size you can get for the money right now. These are still going to be on the small side but these are fine if properly manged with storage. '''This is the best size option available right now. This should be the minimum size of SSD bought now.'''
[* black] '''512GB:''' While these drives are still expensive they are much cheaper then they were a year ago as primary drives. You can now buy 512GB SSD's for a realistic price. You just have to shop around. '''These drives used to be too expensive to recommend. With how cheap they are they make sense. 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 downside is they are not good for price per GB right now. The price has to drop a lot for these. Right now if you are concerned about price, stick to the 256-512GB SSD's in the meantime. '''Right now, these drives are too expensive to recommend for most people.'''
[* black] '''2TB:''' 2TB drives are fairly recent on the consumer side. Due to being so new they are even more expensive then the 1TB drives were. Right now it's better to wait for the prices to drop to a price point that's sane right now. '''While 2TB SSD's are nice, they don't make sense price wise yet. They're too expensive for anyone but the rich.'''
