Solid-state drives are the future of data storage for professionals as well as for general purposes. Solid-state drives use flash memory to deliver high performance and durability. Because there are lots of small, moving parts inside a hard drive like magnetic heads, spindles, and spinning platters, it’s easy for things to stop working, and you could lose your essential data. Without moving parts, SSDs are more durable; they run more relaxed and are energy efficient.
Microsoft Windows is one of the most popular operating systems globally and is being used in corporations as well as for general use. Windows is the first choice as an operating system for personal computers as it has a very appealing and user-friendly GUI (Graphical User Interface).
Linux operating systems are used throughout the computing world, from embedded systems to virtually all supercomputers and server systems. They have secured a place in server installations such as the popular LAMP application stack.
The use of Linux distributions in home and enterprise desktops has increased as the GUI of Linux is becoming more and more familiar to local users. Linux systems once used only commands instead of GUI for interacting with the applications. But today’s Linux systems have advanced and user-friendly GUI, which can be used by the users not know how to use the Linux terminal.
So here are some best SSDs for Windows and Linux operating systems.
SAMSUNG 970 EVO PLUS
Samsung is creating some of the best SSDs from the past decade, and it recently launched the Samsung 970 Evo Plus with higher speeds and new silicon, even we were surprised. The Samsung 970 Evo Plus is one of the fastest drives on the market, but the fact that Samsung is selling it at such a reasonable price point is highly visible. Due to its price point and durable nature, it is one of the best and the fastest SSDs in today’s market.
- PRICE: Rs 6,999 (For 256 GB variant)
WD Black SN750 NVMe SSD
Western Digital has been making a name for itself, producing many of the best SSDs for high-performance gaming experience for a few years now, and the WD Black SN750 continues that legacy, claiming to be the best gaming SSD.

INTEL OPTANE 905P
Intel’s Optane SSD 905P is not well known, but with a random read rated at 575,000 IOPS and random write rated at 555,000 IOPs, it’s one of Intel’s fastest solid-state drives. Granted, its 2,600 MBps read, and 2,200 MBps write speeds might seem a bit pedestrian, especially next to the Samsung 970 Evo and WD Black NVMe SSDs, still, that doesn’t stop this drive from being a high-speed solid-state drive.
- PRICE: Rs. 17,999 (For 500 GB base variant)
SAMSUNG T5 EXTERNAL SSD
Samsung T5 is a highly compact, reasonably priced, and high-speed solid-state storage drive that feels like a high-end portable storage solution. Using the latest generation of Samsung’s 3D V-NAND technology, it packs up to 2TB of storage space in a minimal design and comes in a range of storage sizes at different price points. Although it is an external SSD drive, it is an excellent option for some developers to carry a portable live operating system with them due to its high reading and writing speed.
