[title] Solid State Drives
[* icon_reminder] SSD's make a lot of sense as primary boot drive or a main drive in a laptop. While this is the case some SSD's DO NOT play nice with Linux TRIM. You will need to research the SSD if it has such problems. If there are ANY KNOWN problems you should pick a different SSD unless you know of a workaround or the specifics on the issue and how 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 may make thesethem, but the reliability of these is questionable at bestquestionable. '''Unless you have to use one of these, theythese make no sense.'''

[* black] '''128GB:''' While these are still viable for OS drives, they are also the smallest size you will readily find. Try and get a 256GB SSD if you can since the cost difference is so negligible between 128GB vs 256GB. '''While small, these are better then 16-64GB SSD's. The problem now is 256GB SSD's are so cheap this 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 nowyou should be buying.'''

[* 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 theseyet, so they are very expensive. 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 wereare. 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.'''
