post #461 of 2729
1. Which brand SSD are you considering for your next upgrade?
Intel, OCZ, Crucial, Kingston, Patriot Memory, Samsung, or other?

Corsair (have one and it works flawlessly), prob crucial and samsung.

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

Id go for reliability and performance over price and brand.
Small wonder.

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

To go along with my most recent upgrade, Im waiting for a good deal on another Samsung drive with larger capacity.

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

Mainly performance, some aesthetic

1. Was OCZ, now it is Crucial. Going to be picking up an M4 soon.

2. Performance and reliability. The reliability part is why I am going with the M4 instead of the Vertex 3. I would consider the intel 510 series but they are quite a bit more expensive than the others I was looking at.

1. Intel, Samsung, and Crucial, but this is subject to change as SSD technology/reliability changes a lot over time.
2. Price and reliability before performance. Most of the performance difference is barely noticeable between SSDs anyways.

Brand is important to me at this point. Intel & Crucial (the IMFT, basically) have the best track record so far AFAIK. Performance is sort of a given, as pretty much any SSD will give a tremendous performance improvement over my HDDs.

Corsair, Intel, then OCZ for the next upgrade.

I look first and foremost for performance then for price.

I'm in
1. Mushkin Chronos Deluxe or Crucial M4 toss up
2. Price range first then;
Performance/Reliability i will give up a little performance for reliability;
Brand and country or origin. Also how much business or headaches that company gives the company I work for, plays a role

Intel wasn't a consideration because of price mostly, speeds are not as high as the other two but they are the most reliable drives out there

I consider all brands but my main focus is on Samsung, Intel, Crucial, Kingston in that order.


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

1st Price obviously is the most important aspect
2nd Reliability (whats point of speed if my system dies and all my precious user data is lost)
3rd Performance (high READS should be a given could care less about WRITES but i will take extra speed)
