[title] Solid State drives
[* icon_note] If you are dealing withusing a fairly recent system this is highly advised. '''While this is a very worthwhile upgrade, not everyone can afford one or you may not wantwants one.''' Additional steps to enable TRIM will have to be performed that are not going to be covered in this guide due to being distro neutral and only touching on hardware. Every distro will be different.
[* icon_caution] While an SSD makes sense if you do not need mass storage '''some SSD's do not play nice with Linux TRIM support.''' Because of this you will need to research both the drive AND kernel to see if it a problem. If there are ANY reported problems pick a different drive unless you have a workaround or know the specifics of the issue in question.

[* black] '''16-64GB:''' You will not see these produced by the main companies producing SSD's anymore, being redundant with how cheap 128GB SSD's are now. However, youmainstream vendors anymore. This is simply due to production cost. You will still find these from previous years of production and some of the more generic SSD's like Transcend. However, the primary players no longer manufacture these. '''Unless you have to use these, these make no sense.'''
[* black] '''128GB:''' While these are still viable for light users who rely on the cloud for part of their storagelighter users, they are the smallest potentially viable size you can go for. If you can afford to get a 256GB class or 256GB SSD, thatSSD you will be the way to go, becausebetter off. The cost of a 256GB drive willSSD isn't that much more. '''While better then the 64GB SSD's, these do not bemake much more money in comparison to a 128GB SSD.sense seeing as 256GB SSD's are so cheap now.'''

[* black] '''256GB:''' These are the current best value size you can get for the money, at least right now. These are going to be small, but if you manage the space correctly you will not have as much of a problem as you will have with 128GB SSD's.
[* black] '''512GB-1TB512GB:''' While these drives are still expensive they are much cheaper then they used to be. The price is certainly more reasonable then it was a year ago. These can be bought at very reasonable prices if you shop around for them. '''These drives used to be too expensive to recommend but with how cheap they are now, these make some sense now.'''
[* black] '''1TB
:''' These are the largest drives you have as a consumer right now butnow. The only downsude is they aren't the best valueare not good for price per GB, and probably won't for a while. IfGB right now, even with price drops. I don't expect this to get better anytime soon. Right now if you are considering this, you'd be better served with a 256GB SSD and a 1TB data drive setup, until the cost of a 1TB SSD dropsconcerned about price, stick to 256GB for an acceptable price per GB.SSD. '''Right now, these drives are too expensive to recommend.'''
[* black] '''2TB+2TB:''' 2TB drives are only afairly recent thing on the consumer, and have been traditionally limited to the enterprise sectorconsumer side. Due to being very recent, these drivesfairly recent they are very expensive. It'seven more expensive then the 1TB drives. Right now it's in your best interest for the prices to drop to a price point that's sane. '''While 2TB SSD's are nice, they don't make sense price wise. They're too expensive unless you need them right now.'''
