Win an Intel 320 series SSD! - Page 144  

post #1431 of 2729
1. Which brand SSD are you considering for your next upgrade?
Intel, OCZ, Crucial, Kingston, Patriot Memory, Samsung, or other?


I am currently upgrading to a Crucial M4 64 gb.

2. What do you look for when selecting an SSD? Price, Performance, Brand - or a combination of these elements?

The biggest factor for me is reliability. I don't mind paying a premium price for it. Never have, never will.

1. Crucial, Samsung, Intel

2. Reliability, Performance, Price

 

Too many unreliable SSD's on the market to ignore the importance of quality products. Just because you can reinstall Win 7 on an SSD in minutes instead of an hour, doesn't mean you should have to. :)

1. I'm open to all brand options when it comes to SSDs. All of those companies are good as far as I know.

2. My main factors are price/performance and price/capacity. I'll probably get 60GB minimum.

1. Which brand SSD are you considering for your next upgrade?
Intel, OCZ, Crucial, Kingston, Patriot Memory, Samsung, or other?

Any

2. What do you look for when selecting an SSD? Price,
Performance, Brand - or a combination of these elements?

Performance (interface speed, over-provisioning, and wear-leveling algorithms) and $/Gb, brand is unimportant except in regards to these measurements (brand can be used to estimate the performance of brand new products).

As of right now i am looking into getting the Crucial M4 128gb drive due to its huge performance jump just from a firmware update, as well as the great reviews it has. When searching for an SSD, performance is my biggest quality i look at, with price and quality trailing behind. Thanks for this opportunity.
