Win an Intel 320 series SSD! - Page 202  

post #2011 of 2729
Thanks for doing this Intel/Overclock biggrin.gif

I was considering OCZ

In general, I look for reliability of the SSD before anything else, although price comes at a very close second.

Good luck everyone!

1. Which brand SSD are you considering for your next upgrade?
Crucial first, then Intel if pricing is competitive.

2. What do you look for when selecting an SSD?
Performance first, then price. Reliability is intangible and unpredictable... smile.gif

1) Crucial M4 and Intel 510 are my #1 choice, then all the SF-2281 based drives.

2) Performance/$/relability. I've been holding off on upgrading to an SSD for a long time due to price. I just can't stomach paying $400 for a 256GB drive. The most important performance metrics I'm looking for are random read and write. Sequential is less important. Reliability is also crucial, which is why I rank SF-2281 drives below Crucial and Intel. smile.gif

1. Intel or OCZ. Leaning towards OCZ.

2. It depends. I would say right now price since I do not have a job and am very poor at the moment. Vertex 3's I have my eye on.

1. I'm stuck between either OCZ, Intel, or Corsair.

2. Performance and reliability, I've come to a conclusion that both are hard to have if you aren't willing to shell out the $$.
