Can someone stop the fucking trolling for a second and tell me if I should get one of these?
If and only if you are absolutely positive you need it. It's a lot more comfortable, especially on laptops compared to 5400rpm HDDs. Not so much compared to WD Black or the like. The boost is most noticeable upon gathering random data, so the opertating system will be a lot more responsive in actions like opening start menu, opening random files, etc. No performance boost. I know what I'm saying, my laptop is retardedly slow (5400rpm hdd) compared to my desktop (ssd + raid0 from two 7200rpm hdds).
> Do SSDs still have shit life/reliability?
no, they actually are slightly more durable than HDDs
> What size is needed?
> What brands to get/avoid?
Get SanDisk or Samsung, avoid Kingstom
Pic related are my speeds, feels good m8, 10 seconds boot with disk encryption enabled.
Do you need/really want the speed and can afford it
Do you want more affordable space solutions
This should be simple. They are good products, build quality is fine, speed is fine, price to performance is good. Rest is on the consumer.
motherboard does not recognise as not device
i have 0 problems with crucial drives
#1 Absolutely not
#2 Can you stop posting for a second and make a decision for yourself for once

yes op it is worth it
Reminder that you can't even defrag your files if you save them to a ssd.

It would be nice if it actually made sense to defrag an SSD but doing so would be like moving spokes on a bicycle wheel. All data is already accessible as fast as possible. Defrag would be pointless and just waste cycles.

>Algolia posted a new update. Turns out The issue was the Linux Kernal, not the SSDs. Update from today, July 17th, "Samsung had a concrete conclusion that the issue is not related to Samsung SSD or Algolia software but is related to the Linux kernel. Samsung has developed a kernel patch to resolve this issue and the official statement with details will be released tomorrow, July 18 on Linux community with the Linux patch guide."
