It's been over a decade but we can finally declare solid state drives are not only mainstream, but they're a commodity. Fast storage will hopefully only get faster but today's best choices are only differentiated by how extreme you want to go and how willing you are to pay for the very best.
Large capacity SSDs are about to get cheaper thanks to QLC NAND-based drives. Samsung's own 860 QVO are set to launch next month, with 2TB and 4TB models that are more affordable ($0.15/GB) than the Evo series while sacrificing some performance. The 1TB model is less eventful however, when you can buy our top mainstream SSD pick, the SSD 860 Evo 1TB for just $125 right now.
Gigabytes are cheaper than ever but they can also be the sort of thing where the more you have, the more you tend to consume, and it doesn't take long for the terabytes to fly by if you spend a lot of time on your computer. If you're wanting to clean up your drive, this guide will serve you regardless of your current storage solution.
