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

No, I wish. I would like to, but my spare money is fairly limited right now. I hope I can afford to buy one assuming I don't win one.

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

Intel and Samsung. I put reliability first, I don't have time to deal with problems. I'm looking at you sandforce. After reliability comes price and performance. I need to be able to afford it, and I want it to be 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)?

The last time I completely redid my PC was november of 2011. I normally just upgrade though.

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13? I live in the United States of America, but the answer is 127.

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

Yes, I bought an OCZ Vertex-II over a year ago. Yes, I plan to buy as many, and as large as I can afford until all of my PC's have one in them.
_________________________

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

OCZ for price, Crucial M3 for performance, HyperX for performance. I really must go with as much performance as I can afford when I have a decent amount saved up. I would like ti try an Intel SSD out 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)?

I usually upgrade once per year. Sometimes it's a brand new build.
_________________________

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

I live in the USA

Intel,OCZ, Intel cause of the notability and OCZ cause they make a PCI-E SSD

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
2xCrucial m4's in the desktop
1xOCZ Agility 2 in the Macbook
I might be buying another one when I get a work Macbook in a month or two.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
I've been considering a Crucial for a balance between price, reliability, and performance, an OCZ for price/performance, and an Intel for performance/reliability. Since I'm going to be putting it in a work machine I've been leaning toward reliability which means 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)?
I tend to purchase some kind of computing device about every 6 months.

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
I'm not Candian but order of operations is clearly going to affect this answer. Shouldn't it be written out in mathematical notation? After all there's a difference between (125+45) / 3 - 13 and 125 + 45 / 3 - 13.

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

I currently do not own a SSD. I do plan to purchase 1-2 SSDs in the near future for my next gaming build.

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

I'm considering Mushkin, Corsair, Intel. These brands are solid reliable companies. Mushkin is high on my list because their memory products have never let me down.

3. How often do you purchase a new PC (every 12months or less, every 12-18 months, 18-24 months, 2-3 years, over 3 years)?

I do not purchase PCs, rather I build them. Laptops on the other hand, I purchaseevery 3+ years.

4. What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?

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

Nope, but I was planning on buying one for my laptop. It would give it a little speed boost, and use less power, hopefully giving me more battery life. But Alas, my younger brother's laptop was stolen and since he is still in school I let him have mine. I don't really have plans to upgrade my Desktop with SSD. I hear they have a high failure rate, and performance degrades because they are designed with a certain number of reads/writes per module. I find laptops more disposable than desktops any way.

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

I was trying to research the most power efficient SSD's for my laptop. (Toshiba HG2 or Kingston SSDNow 100 V+)

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)?

Like I said laptops are disposable I get a new one every year or so, but my desktops tend to last me 3 or more. Sig rig is still a core2quad.

HA HA, You damn Canadians trolling these American Internets.
