1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future? -Yes, I have a 60gb Crucial M4 in my newest build.

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 Crucial, Samsung, Corsair, Kingston or Intel b/c of their reputation for quality and their rave reviews and recommendations.

No. Yes.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Yes, I was thinking OCZ, Crucial, or Intel. OCZ and Intel for Brand. OCZ and Crucial for the price. All of the them for the ratings.

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)?
2-3 Years

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

Not yet. But I want, oh boy, do I want! As soon as I can, mostly a matter of the differential between my wants, and my can haves. Unfortunately this is a disturbingly large differential
.

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

Why Intel of course. What else am I going to say when they are giving one away, (to me smile.gif *crosses fingers, then knocks them on wood desk*)

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)?

Well if you count desktops and laptops, plus the ones I buy for family. They pay, but I even have to go to the store to pick it up for them. That's right before I set it up turn it on and then run it throught the setup and registration for them, install the ... well you get the idea I am the family (extended not nuclear) IT go to guy, eh ahem, person. PC savey, yes pc savey, not so much. Oh yeah the answer for the question. As an average more then 1 PC a year but not quit so low as a PC every 6 months.

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

Ok, first off born, bred and live as an american citizen. Secondly, since this enigamatic math puzzle is not written as an equation, as many have noted, so there are differing answers based on the unknown intent of the threads author. If this was addressed in the thousand plus responces, I didn't read them all, so I will never know. So possible answers include:

A: 43 2/3
B: -17
C: 127
D: 120 1/2

So, please pick me, please!!!!! I REALLY want any one of these Intel 520 series SSD badboys! wink.gif

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
- currently do not own one. Yes, hopefully by summer time.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
- Crucial and Intel, mostly for reliability and performance from the reviews and benchmarks i've read

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)?
- probably new components every 18-24 months, although i think my currenty 2600k will keep me happy longer.

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
- Depending on how you read it, but 127 seems to make the most sense; as a fraction isn't a nice skill testing question wink.gif

Thanks OCN and Intel for this chance!

cheers

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Yes, I currently own a Crucial m4. Whether I plan on buying another one in the near future depends on my financial situation - I'd definitely purchase another one for the other computers if I had the spare money.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Crucial, Intel and Samsung - Crucial based on how promptly and professionally they handled the 5200 hour bug on the M4 drives, Intel based on overall reliability figures and their handling of the 8MB bug, and Samsung because of their large presence in the server market.

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)?
Whenever my current hardware feels outdated - so probably once every 4-5 years.

Thanks for the opportunity!

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
I own 2 60 GB Agility 3's by OCZ. No not at the moment.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
OCZ, I've never had any random BSODS, frags, or problems what so ever!

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)?

Never, I upgrade my PC every 3-4 months though!

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

Yes, I plan to buy a larger SSD when the price drops.

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

I do not have a particular brand in mind. The main factors that will sway my purchasing decision include but are not limited to performance, price, reliability. Mainly I want a fast large SSD for a great price that works all the time.

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 am always upgrading my PC.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
I do not own an SSD. I had contemplating it for a long time, but the price right now is too much. So I am really waiting for Windows 8 to come out before I ever considered it.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
I had been looking for OCZ (brand rep, price and performance) or Mushkin (brand rep, performance) SSDs, but I would generally shop for what had the best performance vs. 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 buy parts really on an "as needed" basis. One thing I was planning to do soon was a RAM upgrade. I don't expect to do a full upgrade for a while.
