post #1151 of 1974
1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?

No I dont

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

I would buy from the followung brnads ,INTEL ,OCZ, CORSAIR and SAMSUNG .
The price/performance ratio will be the best way for me to choose a SSD


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 time i can ,little here little there

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

Don't own one currently. I do keep looking at them because I do like the speed of them. However the capacity to price keep driving me away...

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

If I was to get one, then the deciding factors at this point would be the lack of moving mechanical parts for use in a mobile platform. My top three brand choices (in no particular order) are Corsair, Intel, & OCZ.

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)?

Laptop's in the past have been every 2 years, although but my current one is looking like 4-5 years. My desktop system is a constant evolution and receives frequent hardware cycles - when a component doesn't meet my needs, the component gets cycled. I'll call the CPU/Motherboard replacement cycle a new PC purchase (because at that point it's essentially a new computer) - that occurs approximately every 3 to 4 years.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Yes and yes, for the old computer my brother uses to speed that old thing up a bit. It is a pain to boot it up tongue.gif

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, crucial for reliability/price, OCZ depending on how new drives are when I buy, might check out the Samsung one as well.

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)?
Prior to this PC, last one was bought about 6 years ago (family HP machine). I don't plan to go that long again, upgrading every 6mo-1year or so.

Thanks.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
I have been looking into buying one recently.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Currently I am looking at the Crucial M4 branded SSDs as they appear to be the best on the market right now.

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)?
Generally I try to upgrade my PC at least once a year

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Yes, I currently own a Intel X-25M 80GB SSD. Yes, I would like to purchase another SSD.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Since I have zero problems with my Intel SSD now, I will probably get another one. However, it comes to best price-to-cost ratio, so it depends what else is available.

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)?
18-24 months I do a complete rebuild. I upgrade various components every 1-2 months, sometimes even more frequent!

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
I am not a Canadian resident.

1) yes i own a Crucial M4 64 Gb SSD. Yes I am planning on buying another one in the next year or so.

2) Currently I am looking at Crucial, Kingston, Intel, and really any other brand that proves to me that they are reliable and have a decent price tag.

3) I usually make major upgrades every 3-5 years. It just depends on what is coming out and what I have already done to my current system.

4) I am a US resident so I will not answer the math question, but I do know the answer smile.gif
