The bigger, the better. Storing files in SSD became normal since HDD lost popularity. Several brands are working now to make SSD store more and more. That brought positive results in increasing from modest 64GB to 2TB or even 4TB capacity that Samsung managed to come up. Today five internal SSDs are available online with 2TB memories that allow the users to store huge amount of files.
#1 Samsung SSD 860 EVO
Samsung 860 EVO has 2.5 inches in size. Random read speed is 4KB, QD32, and maximum 98,000 IOPS. Compatible with MAC OS, Linux, Windows Server 2003 and above. Operating temperature range 0 – 70 in Celsius. V-Nand technology from Samsung provided the best selling SSD that is available online.
#2 SanDisk Ultra 3D NAND
The popular flash drive maker SanDisk is also prominent in producing SSD Ultra 3 NAND with reading speed up to 560MB in second, write speed maximum 530MB in second. Just like Samsung 860 Evo it has 2.5 inches size. Hardware connectivity reaches up to 6.0 Gb in second.

Western Digital 2TB SSD has sequential reading speed 560MB/s, writing speed 530MB/s, interface SATA III 6GB, 2.5 inches size, and data transfer rate 750MB/s. For under $250 one may order with free shipping in the U.S. Compatible with Linux, MacOS, Windows Vista and above.

The interface is SATA 6GB/s suitable for Windows Vista and above, Linux, Ubuntu, SUSE and Fedora. Best for both desktop and laptop.

#5 PNY XLR8 CS2311
Not many SSD brands have the 2TB capacity. However, PNY XLR8 could have that specification. It has reading speed 560MB/s sequence and writing speed 530MB/s. PC and Mac compatible like the other four mentioned SSDs. Though it is not popular yet, in future, more users will prefer.
Soon HDD will not be in strong demand and manufacturers will stop adding new features on them. Better buy SSD for their small size and better performance.
