Solid state drives prices have dropped dramatically in the past year. In many cases, the drives are half the cost of what they were last year meaning you can get twice as much storage as before. The downside is that the drives are still a fraction of the storage space one can get from a hard drive but you get a huge jump in performance. If you happen to be thinking of upgrading your desktop or laptop to use a solid state drive, check out my selections for the best solid state drives based on value, capacity, reliability and performance. There are even options for those on a smaller budget that would like to use a SSD as cache for an existing desktop PC.
