The Best Internal SSDs Available In The Iranian Market

One of the best ways to speed up your computer is to get an SSD. CPU processing speed is usually good, but the CPU takes a long time to retrieve data from the hard disk drive.

 In fact, the CPU can process billions of revolutions of the hard drive, but it is not possible to achieve such a speed due to the mechanical system of the hard drive. To compensate for this lack of speed, we need an SSD.

SSDs are faster than any type of hard drive, but there are far more important factors than storage capacity in determining their price, to the extent that a 500GB SSD may cost more than its 2TB counterpart. If you are a professional in the field of hardware, you must know the important factors in choosing this part; Otherwise, before introducing the best SSDs available in the Iranian market, it is better to read the continuation of this introduction.

SATA or PCIe?

There are complex discussions about the connection interface and it is not possible to fully explain them in this article. In short, 2.5-inch SSDs work with the Serial ATA (SATA) interface, which was designed for hard drives and has been around since 2000. While add-in-card drives connect to the PCI Express interface, such as graphics cards.

They can work via SATA or PCI Express.The fastest M.2 drives also support NVMe, a protocol designed for fast, modern storage.The interesting thing is that an M.2 drive can be SATA-based, PCIe without NVMe support or PCIe with NVMe support Most M.2 high-end SSDs introduced in recent years support NVMe.

If your day-to-day work consists of web browsing, office scheduling, or even regular gaming, most NVMe SSDs do not offer significantly faster speeds than the cheaper SATA models. If you have heavier tasks such as transferring large files, advanced photo and video editing, encoding, or bulk compression / extraction, it is best to use an NVMe SSD. These SSDs offer up to five times faster speeds than SATA models.

What capacity do you need?

Do not select 128 GB of memory at all. In addition to limited space, these low-capacity drives are also slower due to the number of low-speed memory modules. SSDs with a capacity of 250 GB are cheaper than larger types and are relatively suitable if you do not want to store a lot of files on your computer;

 However, with a slight increase in budget, it is better to choose a capacity of 500 GB, which offers the best balance between price and capacity. Higher capacities, especially those above 2 GB, are currently very expensive, but if you do not have a problem with their price, you can get them.

In summary, consider four basic principles for choosing an SSD:

  • Know your system; Find out if you have an M.2 slot on your motherboard. If not here’s a new product just for you! If your computer is very new, it may support all types of drives. Modern ultra-slim laptops and convertibles only support M.2 drives and cannot use 2.5-inch drives. There are also types that can not be changed and upgraded.
  • Capacity between 500 GB to 1 TB: Do not even think about buying a drive with a capacity of less than 250 GB. 500 GB capacity has the best capacity and price ratio. Higher capacities are also expensive.
  • SATA is cheaper but slower: If your computer supports NVMe / PCIe drives, buy one with one of these technologies. However, SATA drives are more common, usually less expensive, and still offer excellent performance for common applications.
  • Any type of SSD is better than a hard drive; Even the worst SSD is at least three times faster than a hard drive in most usage scenarios.

What kind of storage memory ( NAND flash ) do you need?

All types of SSDs are suitable for normal use on a computer or laptop, however, we will briefly explain their types and differences.

NAND Flash memory is made up of cells that hold bits. The number of bits in cells creates different types. For example, SLC or Single Level Cell has one bit per cell. For MLC the volume of each bit in the cell is doubled and for TLC it is tripled. SLC is faster and more durable, but is usually available in lower capacities and is used for heavy and important tasks. 

TLC and MLC memories are much cheaper than SLC and are available in higher volumes. But they have a shorter lifespan and less speed. In general, MLC and TLC are more suitable for everyday use; Especially TLC, which has a lower price. There is no need to worry about their longevity despite the common rumors.

After this relatively long introduction, we will introduce the best SSDs available in the Iranian market; Note that the announced prices are approximate and based on today’s date (February 29).
