[title] Solid State Drives
[* icon_reminder] You will find three kinds of SSD released at this time: SATA, mSATA and AHCI PCIe drives. Each type will have it's own advantages. '''When picking an SSD, do some research on any potential problems with TRIM under Linux. Some drives have known problems.'''
[* icon_caution] TRIM is not enabled by default in most Linux distros. This is because some SSD's have problems with TRIM. Some SSD's are blacklisted because the problem can't be fixed or the SSD vendor will not fix it. '''Most TRIM problems are related to garbage collection, but other issues come up. Check your distro documentation to see how TRIM is enabled.'''
[* black] '''16-64GB:''' Most vendors do not bother with these anymore. The main reason is the cost of 128GB SSD's makes these obsolete. They may show up in used systems but they do not show up new anymore. '''Do not expect to find these new. If you find one, it's an older drive that is used.'''
[* black] '''128GB:''' This is the smallest SSD produced new. These are viable as OS drives, but not much else. '''If you can run a dual drive setup, these are fine. Do not expect these to work as a primary drive. For primary drives, look at 256GB drives. It should also be noted 256GB drives do not cost much more as well.'''
[* black] '''256GB:''' ThisWhile still small, this size iswill be the best size you can get per GBvalue right now. TheseThe cost per GB is also very good on many drives. The drives are considered small, but workfine in a dual drive setup or as a primary boot drives complemented withdrive when you do not store a large hard drive. You can't fit many programs onlot of files, but these SSD'sfill up fast. Your program capacity will be limited as well. '''256GB is the best valuemost reasonable size available. This should be the minimum size you buy. These SSD's are too small for laptop useavailable.'''
[* black] '''512GB:''' These drives are still kind of expensive, but are getting cheaper. You can now find 512GB SSD's for ~$138. The prices are still a little high, but are much more realistic. '''While the drives are still expensive, the prices are much better these days. I still think the prices are up thereunreasonable, but they are getting manageable.reasonable'''
[* black] '''1TB:''' These SSD's are the second largest available on the consumer market. However, the prices are still pretty bad right now. I would holdHold off until the prices get to a point they can be considered reasonable. '''At the moment, I cannot suggest buying one of these SSD's, due to the high prices. When the prices drop, my opinion will change.'''
[* black] '''2TB:''' 2TB consumer SSD's are a fairly recent thingrecent. Because they are so new, the prices are even worse then the 1TB SSD prices. You really shouldAgain, wait for the prices to improve before considering buying one of these 2TB SSD'sone. '''While these SSD's will be nice to have, the price does not make sense to get one right now.'''
