[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 somedistros, since many SSD's have problems. The problems with TRIM. Some SSD's are blacklisted becausedepend on the problem can't beSSD you purchase, so YMWV. '''Note: On most SSD's, the issue is never fixed and is either fully or partially blacklisted in the SSD vendorkernel. You will not fix it. '''Most TRIM problems are relatedneed to garbage collection, but other issues come up. Checkread the documentation for your Linux distro documentation to see how TRIM is enabledto enable TRIM.'''

This is the cost ofbecause 128GB SSD's makes these obsoleteare usually not much more expensive in many cases. They may show up in a used systemssystem, but they doare not show up new anymore.

'''If you can run a dual drive setup, these are fine. Do not expect theseintend to workuse the SSD as an OS drive and not a primary drive. For primary drives, look at 256GB drives.

[* black] '''256GB:''' While still small, this size will beis generally going to have the best value right now. The cost per GBvalue.

'''While these are priced to be the best value right now, they generally do not store a lot of files, but these fill up fast. Your program capacity will be limitedwork well as well. '''256GBprimary drives since space is the most reasonable size availablelimited.'''
[* black] '''512GB:''' These drives are still kind of expensive, butthe prices are getting cheaper. You can now find 512GB SSD's for ~$138. The pricesbetter with time. In many cases, these are still high,expensive but are much more realistic. '''Whilenot to the drives are still expensive,same degree as before. '''512GB is recommended at a minimum if the prices are much better these days. I still thinkSSD is going to be your only drive installed in the prices are unreasonable, but are getting reasonablesystem.'''
[* black] '''1TB:''' These SSD's are the second largest size available on the consumer market. However,to consumers. I cannot recommend these yet, since the prices are still pretty bad right now. Hold off untilvery high. '''While the prices get reasonable. '''Atdrives being available helps the moment, I cannot suggest buying one of these SSD's, due to the high prices. When the prices drop, my opinionprice, they are simply too expensive and will changelikely remain that way for a few years.'''
[* black] '''2TB:''' 2TB consumer SSD's are fairly recent. Becauserelatively new. As such, they are so new, the prices are even worsemore expensive then the 1TB SSD prices. Again, wait forSSD's. Wait until the prices to improveprice drops a lot before considering buying one. '''While these SSD's will be niceDue to have, the priceinsanely high price, this size class does not make sense right nownow. Wait until the price improves before you consider one.'''
