[title] Solid State Drive (SSD)
[* icon_caution] '''Some SSD's have Linux specific TRIM issues. While most of these issues are minor, knowing about them 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 OS drives, but not as a primary drive.
[* black] '''256GB:''' While these drives are considered small, they tend to be very cheap. For most users, these drives only work as OS drives (and storing most commonly used programs). '''Note: In most configurations, a large secondary drive will be required for mass file storage.'''

[* black] '''512GB:''' While these SSD’s are still expensive, they are much cheaper than they used to be. Many of these SSD's use MLC flash, which has helped bring the cost down by a large margin. MLC SSD's aren't as fast as their SLC counterparts, but this tradeoff is why the cost has come down so much and many of these drives are now affordable.
[* black] '''1TB:''' TheseIn the consumer space, these SSD's are a fairly recent consumer offering. Whilerecent. Since they are fairly recent, the $/GB ratio has improved, it is still higher then I'd like.needs time to come down in order to be considered reasonable. While 2TB SSD's have helped bring the $/GB cost down, but nothelped, it hasn't done much to the point I thinkreduce the cost is reasonableof the drives, and prices are likely to stay high for a while.

[* black] '''2TB:''' Since 2TB SSD's are so new, the $/GB ratio of these drives is still high. Until the $/GB ratio becomes more reasonable, it does not make sense to get one (unless you have no choice).
