Win an Intel 320 series SSD! - Page 70  

post #691 of 2729
I would love to win:

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

I am thinking either intel or OCZ, but not sure yet. Intel is more expensive. But the better performing brand from what I understand.

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

I like to balance price and performance, which of course everyone does. But I have lines on either side of that. I like to be getting the better performing unit per dollar. But will settle for being a little more expensive if its a good brand, or just overall quality piece of equipment.

Intel, OCZ, and Corsair are the 1st brands that come to mind, but I would consider just about any brand.
I seldom buy the "cheapest" when shopping for PC components.
The price difference between the cheapest and the next tier up is usually just too small to make a difference to me.

It's all about storage capacity vs performance vs price - and appearance/construction.
The color can make a huge difference if a modder's working with a special color scheme.

Only thing better than winning an SSD would be winning an Intel SSD.

1)
I'm considering Intel and Crucial


2)
I'm looking for a good price/performance ratio, but only from the brands that were proven to be reliable in the past, explaining my answer in #1

Edit: i tend to include the size in the "performance" category


Good luck everyone! thumb.gif
It's a nice contest, considering the previously 60-70$ 500GB HDDs are now 99$rolleyes.gif
I don't even want to talk about the 1-2-3 TB ones!

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


I am currently looking at Crucial and Samsung.

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


Price to be fair, if I'd buy a SSD i'd wait for 1.5GB/$ or less to buy a SSD and form my applications I would need a minimum of 64GB of SSD space. Also the SSD needs to have very high read speed.

1. Intel and crucial are my preferred SSD brands.
2. Brand is not the most important factor mostly reliability followed closely by price and performance.
