Cheap Solid State Drives .... don't start us.
There are loads of cut-price Solid State Drives on the market and invariably they are exactly that - cheap.
They tend to be cut-price, inferior single chip SSD's that are often programmed to read as a higher capacity than they actually are, slow, unreliable .... and the list goes on.
Please don't buy a "cheapie"SSD as your purchase will end in disappointment. It might be that 1.5TB of data won't fit on your supposed 2TB SSD or that the drive fails after you start using it or that it is just abysmally slow.
Please, please .... if you are buying a new Solid State Drive ensure that you can verify that it is NVMe.
Non-Volatile Memory express is the only type of Solid State Drive worthy of your money.
