Hello, welcome to Newegg!
How can i help you?
I have a Dell XPS desktop 2009 year and I wish to purchase a solid state drive but don't know what options I have and what you might have availiable.
Spencer J.
We have quite a few. Any 2.5" SSD wil lwork fine
don't I need a 3.5" for a desktop?
Spencer J.
No, SSD's do not come in 3.5, they plug in the same. To go into your 3.5 bay you can get a 2.5 to 3.5 adapter
like this
what size do you recommend
Spencer J.
depends on needs, a 250 or 500Gb is the most common. I recommend this drive
I assume I will also need a regular drive to store data 1-2-3 TB size?
Spencer J.
Yes, if you have a lot of data, you would need a bigger drive, large SSD's can be expensive, so a smaller SSD, with larger mechanical is ideal
What's the best brand(s) for SSDs?
Spencer J.
I prefer Samsung, Intel is also a great brand
Thanks! You have been a great help. Time to shop!!!!
Spencer J.
you're welcome. :-)
