[title] Solid State Drive (SSD)
[* icon_caution] '''Some SSD's have Linux specific TRIM issues. While most issues are minor, knowing about these issues in advance is a good idea.'''
[* icon_note] Most Linux distros leave TRIM disabled by default. Look at the documentation for your specific distro to see how to enable it. '''Note: The drive in the picture has [http://forums.crucial.com/t5/Crucial-SSDs/M500-M5x0-QUEUED-TRIM-data-corruption-alert-mostly-for-Linux/td-p/151028|known issues]. The bad features on this drive had to be blacklisted, since they were never fixed.'''
[* black] '''128GB:''' Due to the limited capacity of these drives, their use as a primary drive is not viable. These drives work well as an OS only drive, but not as a drive that contains your OS and data.

[* black] '''256GB:''' While these drives are still considered small, they generally are not much more expensive then 128GB SSD's. Depending on the space used by your OS and programs, remaining space may be limited. Large secondary storage is recommend for larger file storage.
[* black] '''512GB:''' While 512GB SSD's are still somewhat expensive, the price has come down substantially. If you are okay with a slower SSD, you can find SSD's that use MLC NAND flash at greatly reduced prices.
[* black] '''1TB:''' These SSD's only recently became available to consumers. Since they are a fairly recent offering for consumers, the $/GB on these drives is still high. The introduction of 2TB SSD's has improved this, but the prices are still higher then I'd like.
[* black] '''2TB:''' Since 2TB SSD's are so new, the $/GB cost of these drives is high. Until the $/GB ratio on these drives improves, it is probably better to wait for a major price drop that reduces the $/GB ratio to something more reasonable.
