Win an Intel 520 Series SSD! - Page 133  

post #1321 of 1974
1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future? I do not own a ssd but plan to buy one when prices are in my range of affordability

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)? Since i can't afford a ssd i haven't really read much about them but i would go for reliability and price.

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 haven't bought a pc in the past 3 years but have been slowly upgrading.

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

I own a Corsair Force 60 GB, and a Crucial M4 128GB. I may purchase a small cheapish one when I build my GF a desktop next year.

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

Crucial (price/performance), Corsair (performance), Intel (reliability and brand name).

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

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

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Yes, I currently own a Patriot 64 GB but need to upgrade as it is full...

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Brand isn't a huge factor - I'll go with whichever has the best reviews at the time of purchase. (Performance-Reliability-Price-Brand, 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)?
18-24 months.

4) (For Canadian Residents) 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? No I do not as it bit the dust unfortunately. Yes I'm planning on buying one soon.

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 debating on either Intel or Crucial with the determining factors being reliability and performance mainly. However I've also been doing quite a bit of research on the pluses and minuses of Sandforce technology and whether or not I want a drive with such compression algorithms incorporated or not.

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 typically BUILD a new PC every 3 years or so, as that is the typical chipset upgrade timeframe for Intel.

1) Yes. It's a Corsair Nova 2. I need to upgrade because this is slower than my hard drives. And I do eventually plan on buying one if funds allow.

2) Price and performance are the biggest factors to me. I do not have much money so I need to make sure I get the best performance for what I pay.

3)I don't buy new computers for more than 3 years. Very little money so I need to make my decisions on parts count.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? No
Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future? Only if finances permit, which is not likely.

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 buy one, it would be an Intel for their reliability.

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 do a complete upgrade every 2-3 years.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
No. Next major overhaul I do I'll be putting in an SSD.

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

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)?
Overhaul every 18-24 months.
