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

 

No I don't.  And I wasn't really planning on buying one at all, but my cousin's HDD just died in his HP laptop.


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

 

I wasn't planning on buying one at all, mainly because of price and size (I'd fill it fast)

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)?

 

Build computers, with upgrades ever 12-18 months

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

 

Order of operations: BEDMAS

 

125 + (45/3) -13

125 + 15 - 13

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

Yes. Once you buy an SSD you do not go back to HDD, so I would need something larger in capacity.

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

I am interested in buying Samsung again, very reliable brand and it also was a very good price/performance deal when I bought it. If Crucial and Intel have good deals, I will also be interested in buying from them also.

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)?

Less then 12 months, every month or so I upgrade something, mainly if there is a really good deal going on.

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

Yes, I own a Crucial M4. I plan on purchasing another SSD either this year hopefully.

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

I am considering Crucial, Intel and Samsung in no particular order. From what I have read from different reviews as well as feedback on various forums SSDs from these brands tend to have the best reliability which is most important to me, and the price/performance for each of these is good 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)? Usually every 5-6 years with upgrades like RAM maybe every 2-3 or as needed.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
No I do not own an SSD. I was planning on getting one but ran out of space and money.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
The ones I was looking at were Crucial, Intel, and OCZ. price for performance and space was the largest factor. I need something speedy to help speed things up when I'm editing in 1080P which I do whenever I can get the footage to be used in 1080P, otherwise I take the highest resolution as required.
 

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)?
It depends on my needs/wants and if I have the money. My current rig from this time last year was a completely new (besides HDD's) PC from the one I built 3 years ago; However the one before that I had built about 7 years ago and swapped in a very slightly faster processor in about 5 years ago (1.8 Ghz single core AMD as opposed to 1.6 Ghz... Oh yeah I was rockin...)

Thanks for all the contests OCN.

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

Yes I own a Corsair Force 3 GT, I was looking at purchasing another one and maybe doing a raid configuration or starting a new build for.

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

I would love to get an Intel SSD however for the cost to me they were too expensive. I understand that there's a "you get what you pay for mentality" behind the technology but there are a few limiting factors for me. Firstly, price/gb. By far OCZ is the best manufacturer for this even with their premium vertex 3 line however OCZ has a high failure rate and a lot of their SDDs are RMA'ed. Corsair is a step up from that with their Performance line. They are definitely more reliable however they still have their issues. What I like about Corsair is that their Force 3 line is a little more reliable making that margin of price/gb a little more attractive. They represented where I think SSDs should be in today's current market for price which is why I decided to go with them. Kingston HyperX SDDs are a step up and frankly aren't too much more expensive then the Corsair brand however just a touch out of my wallet range. Excellent read and write speeds tho. I think if you want a premium SSD with reliability and very high read/write speeds they are the brand to go with. Patriot Wild Fire is THE brand to go with though. It seems by large that the majority of serious enthusiasts would use this are the margin for which to compare other SSDs with much like WD and Seagate for HDDs. I believe that this brand is the definitive brand to go with. They have excellent warranties on their products, extremely high read/write speeds for Max IOPS, reliable, come with upgrade kit, and the price is right for what you get. Still expensive as hell but affordable. Intel as always has a very nice product however it's just priced so high and far above the other brands that it isn't realistically an attractive option to anyone who doesn't have money to blow.

just to compare...

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)?

Normally I build a computer and upgrade it here and there over the course of 3 years and then start a fresh palette building a new one/recycling parts where I can.

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

I have one and have never looked back. I will need to buy a bigger drive in the near future as I'm running out of room.

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

Possibly another Corsair, but new models are coming out constantly. I prefer performance, reliability, price - in that order.

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 pc's, I assemble or upgrade. Upgrade frequency is usually 18 to 24 months.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Yes i do.. I have a SanDisk Ultra 120GB for my build i'm piecing together but i will not be using this drive for my boot since it was mislabeled on NewEgg as a SATA II and it's really a SATA.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Crucial M4 for performance and great reviews and also looked at the Intel SSD's.

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)? It's been a few years since i bought one... I'd say at least 3. Working on my first build.

1)Yes I currently own a SSD and Yes I would love to have an intel SSD due to there products being so good.

2) The brands are OCZ-Intel-Corsair if I want to buy another one.
