[title] Solid State Drive (SSD)
[* icon_reminder] This guide covers 3 SSD formats: SATA, mSATA and PCIe (AHCI). '''Important: Many drives are not properly validatedicon_caution] '''Many SSD's have TRIM problems that only happen in Linux, especially when it comesLinux. This has to the implementation of TRIM. Purchase a drive from a reputable vendordo more with validation and poor implementations then TRIM itself. To avoid TRIM problems, find an SSD that is confirmedknown to not have any issues (or pick one with issues that are known to be insignificant or the fewest problems in Linuxproblem feature has been blacklisted).'''
[* icon_caution] In many Linux distros, TRIM is disabled by default and has to be enabled manually. Part of the reason for this is drives with TRIM implementations that cause problems. To enable TRIM, check theyour distro's documentation for your distro to enable it. '''Note: In some cases, there may be a problemsee how this is done. '''Important: Features with a drive that never gets fixed. If this happens, the bad feature(s)known problems are blacklisted.'''

[* black] '''256GB:''' While stillthese drives are considered smallsmall when compared to other drive capacities, these drives are typically not much more then 128GB SSD's. File space is likely going to be the best value. They don't work as primary drives for local storage heavy users, but can work for someone who does not needlimited, so backing these up with a large secondary drive for storage (or are willing to use external media for larger files)may be a good idea if you need a lot of drive space.
[* black] '''512GB:''' While 512GB SSD's are still somewhat expensive, they have come down in price, especially ifprice substantially. If you are okay with trading small amounts of theoreticalwilling to trade some speed for capacity. This iscapacity, you can get an even lower price on many of these drives. These drives generally work the recommended starting pointbest if it will be theyou can only installed driveinstall one drive in your system.
[* black] '''1TB:''' These SSD's only recently became available to consmers. Right nowconsumers. As such, the biggest problem with these drivescost is going to bevery high since the cost because they are so new. These drives are simply too expensive forper GB is still high on these drives. This has improved slightly with 2TB SSD's, but the time being, until prices start to come downcost is still higher then I'd like.
[* black] '''2TB:''' 2TB consumer SSD's are relatively new. Because of this,in the pricesconsumer space are even higheralso new, and are far more expensive per GB then the 1TB drives. The prices are likely to take even longer thenSSD's are. At this time, the 1TB drives as well, so it's bestcost per GB is too high to recommend them; my recommendation is to wait onuntil the cost is better optimized (which will take a substantial price drop. Right now, they are simply too expensivewhile).
