[title] Solid State Drives
[* icon_reminder] SSD's make a lot of sense as primary boot drive or a main drive in a laptopdrives. While this is the case some SSD's DO NOTdo not play nice with TRIM under Linux. '''You will need toTRIM. '''Before you buy an SSD, research the SSD for anydrive you want to see if it is known to have TRIM problems. If thereit has issues, determine what they are any known problems, pick a different SSD. The exception here isand see if they matter. If you know the workaround that fixes the issue, orfind a fixworkaround, see if it will fix the issue you may have.'''
[* icon_note] A lot of people seem to run intoicon_caution] TRIM issues under Linux. This is because it is not enabled by default in most Linux distros. In some cases, the SSDThis is blacklisted for TRIM support because it causessome SSD's have problems with how Linux implements TRIM. Some SSD's get blacklisted because the kernel in some way. '''Before you decide to buy a SSD, look intoproblem can't be fixed or the procedureSSD vendor won't fix it. '''Before settling on enablingan SSD, see if it has any known problems. You will also need to see how to enable TRIM forin your Linux distro.'''
[* black] '''16-64GB:''' You will not see these SSD's offered by most SSD vendors nowanymore. This is because small SSD's are in low demand and the lower cost of flash memory 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 replacementyou may want to consider replacing it.'''
[* black] '''128GB:''' This is the smallest size SSD that isyou will find produced at this point. While these are still viable as OS drives, the cost of a larger SSD is so negligible it'sit is worth looking looking at a 256GB SSDSSD's. '''While these are small, they are better then 16-64GB SSD's. TheNow the problem now is 256GB SSD's are so cheap demand for this size is starting to drop in demanddrop.'''
[* black] '''256GB:''' This size is the best size you can get for the moneyper GB right now. These drives are still on the small sideconsidered small, but are fine if properly manged and not filledwork as primary boot drives complemented with a large hard drive. You can't fit many personal files. These are not the best choice for a laptopprograms on these SSD's. '''256GB is the best value size available right nowavailable. This isshould be the minimum size of SSD most people should buy at this pointyou buy. These SSD's are too small for laptop use.'''
[* black] '''512GB:''' While theseThese drives are still expensive theykind of expensive, but are much cheaper then they used to begetting cheaper. You can now buy afind 512GB SSDSSD's for ~$138. The prices are still a more realistic pricelittle high, but you will have to shop around. '''Theseare much more realistic. '''While the drives used to be too expensive to recommend. With how cheap they are now they make sense. Theystill expensive, the prices are much better these days. I still expensivethink the prices are up there, but not to the same degreethey are getting manageable.'''
[* black] '''1TB:''' These SSD's are the second largest SSD's you can buy as aavailable on the consumer market. However, the prices are still pretty bad right now. The only downside isI would hold off until the prices get to a point they are not good for price per GB yet. These drives are prohibitively expensive. If you are concerned about price, stickcan be considered reasonable. '''At the moment, I cannot suggest buying one of these SSD's, due to 256-512GB SSD's right now. '''These drives are too expensive to recommend for most people, at least for nowthe high prices. When the prices drop, my opinion will change.'''
[* black] '''2TB:''' 2TB drivesconsumer SSD's are a fairly recent onthing. Because they are so new, the consumer side. Due to being so new theyprices are even more expensiveworse then the 1TB drives. WaitSSD prices. You really should wait for the prices to dropimprove before considering buying one of these 2TB SSD's. '''While these SSD's will be nice to ahave, the price point that's sane right now. The prices for these are ridiculous. '''While a 2TB SSD is nice, they don'tdoes not make sense price wise.
