Win an Intel 520 Series SSD! - Page 107  

post #1061 of 1974
1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
I currently own a Crucial M4 SSD. I do plan on purchasing more for RAID.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Not sure on which to buy. I really care about performance the most.

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 purchase a new PC every 12-18 months. It may not be a full PC, maybe just one or two parts to stay up to the most recent!

4) I'm from US

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Yes, I own one. I intend on purchasing another in the future.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
I will be getting another Crucial M4 128GB model as all benchmarks and reviews indicate it as a fast and stable drive. Personal use backs that information.

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 build a new one everyone 2-3 years.

Yes I own a Kingston.....Yes I would like to when the price drops

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
I would like to get two more but not really sure what brand. It would have to have decent storage for the price

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 12-18 months I try to upgrade my system

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Yes I own a 80GB Intel SSD. I would like to upgrade when the prices drop more.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
I have had no issues with my Intel and would not mind buying another Intel, but I would definitely consider 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)?
About every 12 months, upgrades range from just graphics cards, to new full builds.

4) I am from the US.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Yes, a Crucial M4 120GB. I would like to own a larger model.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Intel, M4, or OCZ. I would purchase Intel if it were faster. I would purchase OCZ if it were more reliable.

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)?
Very rarely (full upgrade every four years). But I could upgrade the HD more frequently.

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

-Yes I currently have the Intel X-25V (40gb) that I use as a boot drive, I was planning on possibly buying a larger one to be able to do more than boot windows from, or even two.

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

-I was considering both Intel and OCZ, Intel from personal experience (X-25V has been very good and reliable without hiccups) as well as friends using them and a good community backing them up, and OCZ because of wide spread usage and relatively positive feedback.

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 aim to add in bigger parts (motherboard, processor, graphics) every 18-20 months and storage devices every 2.5 years or so (X-25V and my HDDs are almost hitting that age now and just ordered i5 2500k and new motherboard yesterday)

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?

-I do not own an SSD, but is planning to purchase one within the next six months.

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

-I am aiming for Crucial and Intel due to the reliability of their controllers and excellent customer service.

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 have to wait a good 3-5 years to buy the big equipment (CPU, motherboard, ect), due to the fact that I'm always on a tight budget.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Currently own an SSD. And would like to purchase a faster and or larger one than I currently own.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
OCZ as they seem to hit a solid price/performance ration when compared to some of the other brands. Though Samsung has also been in the consideration.

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)?
If money allowed I would upgrade my PC yearly, however it does not and for this reason new PC purchases are reserved for every 2-3 years.

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
Not applicable.

Good luck to everyone! But that just means we all have the same amount of luck and thus no person has better luck than another which makes this statement somewhat paradoxical? Well good luck to me anyways thumb.gif
