Win an Intel 520 Series SSD! - Page 109  

post #1081 of 1974
1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future? Yes, I own 3. 2 Intels and an OCZ.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)? My OCZ has been bad. I'd likely stick to Intel.

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)? Major upgrade every 2-3 years.

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13? 127

1. Yes I own one and yes I plan to buy plenty more. I also recommend them to clients all the time.

2. Cruical, Corsair or Intel. I for one no longer have any desire to deal with OCZ they burned me on 4 rebates in a row all for Vertex plus SSD's. I like Cruical so far thats what I have there latest fix was released fast and I have respect for them for that Corsair I would buy cause they have best customer support. As for Intel it would have been my first choice if the price of the SSD's where lower offered by intel. And I'm not talking cheap slow SSD I just would want something with fast speed that was affordable or in the same class as cruical.

3. That question is hard I change parts all the time. I will answer this though in my main rig I have used 5 different SSD drives within the last 30 months. Because I'm always changing parts. 1. OCZ Vertex 2. OCZ Colossus 3. OCZ Vertex 2 (2x Raid0) 4. OCZ Agility 3 5. Cruical M4

4. I enjoyed other answer I have seen for #4. But I'm from California.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Yes, I own an OCZ Vertex plus 240GB, I do not plan on purchasing one in the near future

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
If I won the lottery, I'd probably go with a Crucial M4

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 recently purchased a new PC about 2 weeks ago, Last build was built 4 years ago. I do not plan on building another in the next few years to come. If i had to choose one of the above, it would be the over 3 years category.

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
127

Good luck to all, and happy building!

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

No, I do not currently own a SSD, but I have recently thought about purchasing one.

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

I was mostly looking into Corsair brands because of previous reliability in other products. There quality is always up to par, and I have not once been let down by there service, I have yet to own a single Intel product.

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)?

Honestly, the older I get the more I buy new computers. I am buying parts for a new rig right now, trying to save money because I'm a college student who is usually broke. So far I have just a few components, but a SSD would definitely come in handy. But to answer the question, I'd say every 12-18 months.

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

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Crucial because of price, Intel, Kingston, and Mushkin because of performance. Though price is most important with SSDs.

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 months.

Not Canadian, yay!

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

Yes, I do! I own an Adata s510 120gb SSD as my primary boot drive. I plan on buying more soon, because this one is just about full.

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

Brand names aren't really a factor for me, I am for affordability and reliability. I usually wait for reviews on other websites such as newegg.ca or memoryexpress.com before making a purchase. From what I understand Intel, Crucial, Mushkin, some patriots, and Adata SSDS are pretty reliable. I've had bad luck with OCZ stuff, so I tend to stay away from them.

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)?

Over 3 years if the one I built decides to quit. I'm not to concerned with buying a new PC because i just built one with high end parts. It should last me a while, but I do love upgrading! 12 months from now I can see my major upgrade most likely being upping the storage (SSD). They are not cheap at all right now and my games, videos, music, and projects can use all the storage I can get.

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


These are the absolute worst...

127 = if you use order of operations...
43.666 = if you are reading the question and doing the math as you go...

Since it's a skill testing question I'd say its "127"


P.S GO! JETS! GO!

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
I do not currently own one as it is quite too expensive for my taste. Although I will be buying one in near future, probably in 2013 or 2014.
2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Price and reliability are my main concerns, although it would be nicer to have better performance though. Samsung and Intel wins on reliability, although not too sure on price as I won't be buying one for now, but in future, I'd expect big companies to be producing SSDs that are cheaper than small companies, so it would be, again, either Intel or Samsung.
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)?
Over 3 years as I'm not made of money nor I have any money trees growing somewhere near here. I wish I could though.

For question 4, I'm not Canadian.

1. Yes, I just purchased a Samsung 820 128gb, haven't had a chance to use it yet! If I like it enough, I will definitely be buying another for my main rig.

2. I am mainly concerned on SSD products with the highest Quality:Price ratio. Samsung, Crucial, and Intel tend to dominate this market.

3. I would say I buy a SSD/HDD equipment every other year.

4. wut, N/A

Thanks for the free ish!
