[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 TRIM under Linux. '''You will need to research the SSD for any known problems. If there are any known problems, pick a different SSD. The exception here is if you know the workaround that fixes the issue, or a fix.'''
[* icon_note] A lot of people seem to run into TRIM issues under Linux. This is because it is not enabled by default in most distros. In some cases, the SSD is blacklisted for TRIM support because it causes problems with the kernel in some way. '''Before you decide to buy a SSD, look into the procedure on enabling TRIM for your Linux distro.'''
[* black] '''16-64GB:''' You will not see these SSD's offered by most SSD vendors anymorenow. This is because small SSD's are in low demand and the lower cost of the flash hasmemory has made them irrelevant. You may find these in used systems, but you will not find new drives this small. '''Unless you have to use the SSD, it should be considered for replacement.'''

[* black] '''128GB:''' This is the smallest size SSD that is produced at this point. While these are still viable as OS drives, the cost of a larger SSD is so negligible it's worth looking at a 256GB SSD. '''While these are small, they are better then 16-64GB SSD's. The problem now is 256GB SSD's are so cheap this size is starting to drop in demand.'''
[* black] '''256GB:''' This size is the best size you can get for the money right now. These are still on the small side but are fine if properly manged and not filled with too many personal files. These are not the best choice for a laptop. '''256GB is the best size available right now. This is the minimum size of SSD most people should buy at this point.'''

[* black] '''512GB:''' While these drives are still expensive they are much cheaper then they used to be. You can now buy a 512GB SSD for a more realistic price, but you will have to shop around. '''These drives used to be too expensive to recommend. With how cheap they are now they make sense. They are still expensive, but not to the same degree.'''
[* black] '''1TB:''' These are the second largest SSD's you can buy as a consumer right now. The only downside is they are not good for price per GB yet. These drives are prohibitively expensive. If you are concerned about price, stick to 256-512GB SSD's right now. '''These drives are too expensive to recommend for most people, at least for now.'''
[* 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. Wait for the prices to drop to a price point that's sane right now. The prices for these are ridiculous. '''While a 2TB SSD is nice, they don't make sense price wise. They are too expensive for anyone but the rich.'''
