1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
I do own a SSD, and I love it. I wish my laptop could use one. I will definitely purchase more 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 would consider many brands. Must be reliable. Price for performance somewhat comes over capacity.

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)?
Personally, 2-3 years. But for others, very often

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
Thank god I'm not Canadian. headscratch.gif

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
No. Only if prices go down because I can not afford one but would love to have one to see how great they are.

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, I would consider either Intel or Samsung based on the price I would pay because the performance, reliability and warranty will be worth my money.

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.

Thank you Overclock.net and Intel. thumb.gif

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future? Don't currently own one. I'll probably get one with my next GPU upgrade.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)? Looking at Intel, Crucial and Samsung. Price and reliability are the main two things I look at.

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'm currently on a 3 year cycle with minor upgrades in between.

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

I currently own 2 SSD. One Corsair F40 40gb and One OCZ Vertex 3 120gb

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

I was looking to getting a bigger SSD and still searching for and SSD with not only reliability but performance. With the issues that ive been having with the SSDs running the new sandforce chips im wanting to lean away for sandforce even though performance is there reliability isn't

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)?

Im always upgrading my system. I have never bought a pre built system and probably will never but i prefer upgrading . its an endless project

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

I do not currently own an SSD, but I am definitely planning on purchasing one in the next year's time.

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

I'm actually mainly considering Intel, and not because of this contest, but because from what I've understood, Intel is the most reliable in terms of SSD manufacturers.

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 prefer to build my own computer and upgrade it maybe once a year. Major upgrades every 3 years approximately.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Yes. Currently own an OCZ Agility 2 120GB. Planning to purchase a new one towards the end of the year.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Samsung. Great track record of reliability, priced competitively against Crucial and Intel, and I trust them to manufacture good NANDs.

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 or less if I have to choose one of the options. Parts go in and out every few months rather than upgrading the whole PC in one go.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
No I currently do not own a SSD and whether or not I am going to purchase one in the near future is dependent on the price of the SSD and my income.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
From what I've seen I would choose between Intel and OCZ. The reasoning has to do with price versus performance which in my opinion is one of the most important. Both are solid companies so I expect good customer service if reliability becomes an issue.

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 never really purchase full computers but I do tend to upgrade my graphics cards, hard drives, processors, etc. every year or so.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future? I currently own an OCZ agility 2 60GB. I am considering purchasing a few more 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 am looking at 2 X OCZ agility 3 60GB or 120GB.

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 build a new computer every 2 years and upgrade my video card every year if it is worth the price. And I upgrade my laptop every year and a half to 2 years depending on the graphics cards available for them.

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13? Even though I am not a Canadian resident the answer is 127
