IF you want the cheepest possible, you get slower than hdd.

Im confused, if you dont need speed or data security what are you even doing?

 

I could use some help with this!

The cheapest ones are worse than just a regular hard drive in terms of speed and not really more reliable whilst still being more expensive than a hdd.

 

So start with like a solid ssd like a wd blue SATA or mx 500.

Go to retailers site, select ssd, select size, sort by price.

In some workloads, but for things like bootup speed, app load time, updates, swapping to disk and most other desktop use cases a bottom tier ssd would be better. Ive done some testing with a qlc dramless sata ssd and its still better for most uses than a hdd.

Qvo 860 from samsung was ONLY faster in the tiny operation random access everything else it was just slower. Day to day use you could've fooled me what drive I was using and for games loading was awful for the big AAA ones.

 

Genuinely don't recommend it and to just spend that 10$ more on a much better drive.

why do you want a ssd then as it will be slower than a mechanical drive, since it wont have a dram cache, and a ssd with dram cache which will be much faster cost only 10 bucks more than without one?

 

I'm just wondering why you deliberately want the slowest drive possible instead of spending 10 bucks more and get a really fast one, or are you just not aware how ssds work?

Yes, when its new, after 1-2 years you'll get ~30mb write/read on dramless ssd, which is *really* slow (happened with 2 different "Kingston" drives)
