1) No, planning to get an SSD for my Ivy Build
If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
2) Mushkin, and anything with a sandforce controller. I have always loved mushkins reliability, and sandforce have a special place in my heart for using math that's completely insane.
How often do you purchase a new PC (every 12 months or less, every 12-18 months, 18-24 months, 2-3 years, over 3 years)?
3) Over 3 years, when ever a new generation fits well together, like Ivy + Kepler or something

4) I am not a Canadian :|

I'm in

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
First SSD was an Intel 320 120GB. Even though it's SATA2, I look forward to the full potential of this 520's SATA3 speed and RAID'ing some soon.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Why not Intel? Fits my Intel based system, haven't failed me yet as my first SSD so I'll stick to it for it's reliability and price when I got it for Christmas.

3) How often do you purchase a new PC (every 12 months or less, every 12-18 months, 18-24 months, 2-3 years, over 3 years)?
Every 2-3 years. Hoping I'll be able to obtain some money for next year's machine.

1) Yes - I own a Crucial C300 64GB. I am planning on purchasing at least two more SSDs in the future - one for my wife's laptop and another, larger one for my PC.

2) I'm looking at Intel or Crucial brands. I have experience with Crucial since I own one and have had no issues with it, nothing but positives with the Crucial I own. I am considering Intel because they have been known for reliability and performance. I have read numerous benchmarks and reviews from various sites about SSDs and Intel has always been one of the best.

3) Kind of a hard question to answer since I only upgrade parts that need it instead of buying a whole new PC. I upgrade pretty much when my gaming performance starts to suffer; typically every 3 to 4 years I'll buy a new motherboard and cpu, and about every 2 years for gpu. I buy a new laptop about every 5 years.

I do not have one currently, but I am looking to get one for my next upgrade, mid-2012

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?

I've only considered Intel and Crucial, because of reliability concerns from other brands

3) How often do you purchase a new PC (every 12 months or less, every 12-18 months, 18-24 months, 2-3 years, over 3 years)?

I usually upgrade my individual components everytime there is a major hardware release/refresh

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?

Currently I do no own an SSD of any kind. I had thought about purchasing a 320 series Intel SSD until I got wind of the Cherryville line. I have been waiting and waiting for intel to release them all throughout 2011. Unfortunately the prices are a bit too steep for me. I cannot justify purchasing anything smaller than 120GB. Perhaps if I had an ultra book I could justify slapping an 80GB SSD in there but for a gaming rig I just cannot imagine 80GB being large enough for anything but the OS and a few games.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?

If I were to purchase an SSD right this instant I would probably go with Intel. Although they technically the fastest SSD's on the market they are known for being the most reliable with the lowest failure rates, or so I've heard. If not Intel then perhaps Corsairs Crucial series. I have faith in Corsairs products and stand by there build quality.

3) How often do you purchase a new PC (every 12 months or less, every 12-18 months, 18-24 months, 2-3 years, over 3 years)?

I don't purchase a new PC outright, I upgrade parts gradually over time. At any given time some parts are new while others are a little aged. I try to save up to upgrade my GPU every 18 months or so. For example, currently I'm running a single MSI GTX 580 Lightning. Rather than upgrade straight to the upcoming Kepler GTX 680 I'll end up up-grading to the GTX 685/780 revision instead.
