Guide For Buying The Best SSD

Buying an SSD is the cheapest and most affordable thing that can be done to speed up your computer. Because hard disks are always the slowest part of a computer, and computers that have only hard disks are virtually devoid of multi-tasking capabilities, having an SSD can significantly improve overall system performance.

Buying an SSD, Hard disks are like a bottleneck. Hard on the system, it prevents the use of all the CPU and RAM power. Instead, thanks to SSD, it goes faster than the simplest operations, such as opening various tabs in the browser, to simultaneous read and write operations under the heaviest renderings.

With SSD, Copy / Paste speeds can be up to tens of times faster than hard disks. Rendering projects are more than 30 percent faster thanks to SSD, SSD files are up to tens of times faster than hard disks, and computer boot speed can be achieved in just a few seconds thanks to SSD.

In gaming, thanks to SSD, the loading speed of the game steps and map reading are several times faster than the hard disk, and the speed of installing the operating system on SSD can be reduced to even less than 10 minutes.

No matter how powerful and advanced your CPU or graphics card is, as long as your computer does not have SSD, you can never use it to its full potential.

So everyone should buy SSD. Buy SSDs for PCs, laptops, and even your console for a faster and more powerful system. It does not matter if your computer or laptop is old, it does not matter if your system port is SATA II, only thanks to SSD, its speed will be multiplied.

For more information on SSDs, you can refer to the article SSDs in terms of connection type .

Now let’s go to the offer to buy an SSD on the website of Hardware Magazine. We have classified the buying guide of the best available SSDs based on the active brands in the Iranian market. So the initial categorization by brand is in alphabetical order, and then in each category, we categorized our offers based on the strength, and ability of the SSDs.

For example, our first offer is the strongest product of that brand in the Iranian market, and our last offer is the weakest part of that brand.

SSD is the only component whose best model is important for installing operating systems and applications, and its weakest models are important because SSD can also be used as an archive.

That’s why we put weak but high-capacity SSDs on the agenda so that friends who are looking to use SSDs for archiving can compare the cheapest and most cost-effective options between different models of brands. To choose.

So our offers can cover the entire market, and our tips include all groups, and all users, from gamers, renderers and even server users to friends interested in archiving images, movies, music and apps.

Lastly, we have tried to provide you with a table of important components for judging the performance of an SSD. By comparing these components, which are explained below, you can buy your desired model, or by announcing your budget and usage of the system, as well as announcing your system specifications in the comments section, you can buy the best consulting option from us. Get.

Classification component: In this section, we classify SSDs based on their performance speed: High End category includes the most powerful high-speed and high-end models; Mainstream category includes models of medium speed but good price-performance ratio; Entry Level category includes relatively weak but bulky and cheap models

DRAM cache component: The presence of DRAM cache memory has a great effect on the fast performance of SSD. CSD-free SSDs generally have lower speeds in all their functions.

Sequential Read and Write Component: Sequential read and write speeds Most professional applications include rendering, file compilation, video conversion, and file transfer. During everyday use of the computer, a very small percentage of sequential reading and writing occurs.

Random read and write speed component: Random read and write speed, often denoted by IOPS, is the most important SSD speed factor for gamers and ordinary computer users.

This component is the number of data transfer operations per second, and the highest percentage of operations that users perform on the system includes the same random read and write. The higher the IOPS of an SSD, the faster it is in the real world experience.

Text life component: SSDs have a limited text life. As you write and write data to flash memory, the memory gradually wears out, and then the SSD’s ability to store data is lost. The longer the text, the longer the SSD will last.

First suggestion:

ADATA XPG GAMMIX S50

If you are more or less familiar with the PS5016-E16 controller, this is the first SSD controller based on the PCIe Gen.4 standard manufactured by Phison, and almost all major SSD brands have offered at least one model based on this controller. The XDP GAMMIX S50 SSD is equipped with this controller and is the first SSD based on PCIe Gen.4 to have an acceptable speed compared to the flagship PCIe Gen.3 models, but in the PCIe Gen.4 class an SSD Di is almost average.

The XPG GAMMIX S50 can be safely used for rendering due to its excellent lifespan. Idita company has stronger models than this model in its High End product portfolio, which has not yet reached the Iranian market.

GIGABYTE brand NVMe SSDs

First suggestion:

GIGABYTE AORUS NVMe GEN4 GP-ASM2NE6XXXXTTD

GIGABYTE Aorus NVMe Gen.4 SSD is equipped with PS5016-E16 controller. This is the first SSD controller based on the PCIe Gen.4 standard manufactured by Phison, and almost all major SSD brands have offered at least one model based on this controller. As the first PCIe Gen.4-based SSD, it has an acceptable speed compared to the flagship PCIe Gen.3 models, but in the PCIe Gen.4 class, it is an almost mid-range SSD.

The AORUS NVMe Gen.4 memory can be used safely for rendering purposes due to its excellent lifespan. GIGABYTE also has more powerful models in its High End product portfolio, which has not yet reached the Iranian market.

 You can read the review of this SSD in this article .

Second suggestion:

GIGABYTE GP-GSM2NE3XXXXNTD

Unfortunately, GIGABYTE is a bit confusing in naming SSDs. There are two series of this SSD model, which does not have a specific name other than GIGABYTE SSD. Some stronger models start with part number GSM2NE 3 , and some weaker models start with part number GSM2NE 8 . Please note, the models offered must be GSM2NE 3 .

In any case, this SSD is one of the cheap SSDs without Dram cache and equipped with Phison controller. The 128GB model is very weak, but the larger models have acceptable power at the base level.

These SSDs are suitable for users whose M.2 port has only 2 PCIe Gen.3 X2 lines.

SAMSUNG brand NVMe SSDs

First suggestion:

SAMSUNG 980 PRO

Samsung 980Pro SSD is the first serious step for the company to enter the high-speed PCIe Gen.4 connector. The 250G model of this SSD has a low sequential write speed, but its 500GB and 1TB models are among the most powerful and fastest PCIe Gen.4 SSDs in the world.

Unlike in the past, when Samsung always used MLC memory in the Pro series, this time it has used cheaper TLC memory, and the only Achilles heel of this type of memory is its relatively short lifespan.

This SSD is offered at a slightly higher price in Iran and its price should be more competitive. We recommend this SSD to friends of gamers and power users.

Friends who want to use this SSD for rendering, its 1TB model has a good lifespan.

Fifth suggestion:

SAMSUNG 870 QVO

Samsung has used cheap QLC memory in the SSD QVO, but because Samsung is a good manufacturer of memory, its QLC model parts are better than other brands. Many brands have also used QLC memory in a cache-free structure, but Samsung has used the best available cache for this low-cost model, DDR4 RAM, to deliver higher-than-class performance despite its lower price.

Slowly Many users who are looking to use SSDs for archiving or for bulky and affordable SSDs for their NAS devices will not find a better option than the 870Evo.

The only criticism that can be made of this drive is its short lifespan.

NVMe SSDs offered by WESTERN DIGITAL brand

Only offer available:

WESTERN DIGITAL BLUE SN550

The SN550 is a basic class of low-cost Western Digital products. This SSD uses a dedicated four-channel controller made by Western Digital (Sandisk) and does not have a DRAM cache. This memory is a great option for office systems due to its low speed.

We also recommend this SSD to users with PCIe Gen.3 X2 port M.2 port bandwidth.

Recommended SATA SSDs of WESTERN DIGITAL brand

First suggestion:

WESTERN DIGITAL BLUE SSD

Western acquired SanDisk in 2019 with a $ 19 billion deal to consolidate its foothold in the SSD market. SSD Western Blue can be called one of the children behind this contract.

This good product was created by rebranding the SanDisk X400 and has been slightly updated.

Using the popular Marvell 88SS1074 controller gives this memory good power and is one of the acceptable options for a variety of uses.

Second suggestion:

WESTERN DIGITAL GREEN SSD

Western Digital is a major brand in the field of hard drives, but in the field of SSD, it does not have many attractive products. In the Iranian market, SSD Western Green is apparently one of the most popular choices in the market, so much so that its counterfeit model can be found in abundance in the market.

In this way, they sell a nameless SSD with a box and a Western-like label instead. But do not worry too much, because the fake Western Green model is faster than the original model, so it can not be said that the friends who bought the fake Western Green model were not necessarily unlucky.

Either way, the original Western Green SSD uses the Silicon Motion SM2258XT controller and is slightly faster than the hard drive. We recommend using this model only for office / archival purposes.

This SSD is offered in two models, 2.5 inches and M.2 with the same specifications.
