1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Currently I do not. I would like to purchase one 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 was interested in Crucial based on positive reviews, but after their recent firmware issue with the drive failing after exceeding a certain number of writes, I'm not sure (even though a firmware update fixed this issue, it has still affected my confidence in Crucial).

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)?
Typically every 2-3 years.

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
Not Canadian, but the answer is 127.

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

I currently own an OCZ Vertex 3 120gb that I am using in my gaming machine. I recently bought a macbook pro and I will be buying an ssd for it 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.)?

I have considered intel and ocz. I look at reviews and performance first, then take price into account. The reviews take care of reliability and brand doesn't really matter but I have heard good things about ocz in the past.

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 new PCs, I do incremental upgrades. I would say that a majority of my components get replaced over any given 2 year span.

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

I live in the USA. 131/3 is the answer given the step by step nature of the problem, or 127 for those who treat the problem as a whole.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Yes, a Crucial C300 64gb, too small for anything major but great for booting. I might upgrade if prices continue to decrease.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Corsair for Performance, Intel for reliability Samsung or crucial for a balance.

About every 3-4 years with upgrades in between.

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

Yes and yes.

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

Intel for reliability
OCZ Vertex 3 for speed and price
Samsung 830 for being decent at everything

To be honest though I buy different ones for different purposes. I have x25e's, c300s and have bought 830's and M4's for work. Often the determining factor is being decently fast, being on sale and not having any showstopper bugs.

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)?

Never - it's a continuous upgrade
