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

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

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)?

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

1) I do not currently own an SSD. I was hoping to get one around July or August of 2012.

2) I was considering either an OCZ SSD or an Intel SSD. Just because that's what my friends use and I've heard good things about them.

3) I'd say around ever 2-3 years. Other than that I'm constantly upgrading my PC's that I use.

4) Not Canadian BUT, according to PEMDAS it's 127. Disregarding PEMDAS 43.6666 repeating. tongue.gif

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
I currently own a Crucial C300 128gb and Intel X25-M 80gb. If I buy another "soon", it will be a small, 32gb or 64gb drive for a boot device in my Budget BOINCer.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
For the Budget BOINC rig, I would buy whatever is cheap and used, as performance isn't a huge issue in that system. For my main system, I would likely upgrade to a Crucial M4.

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 time I build a system, I tell myself I won't upgrade it for 2+ years. I've failed at that with my current system, having had various tweaks purchased every month, for the past 6 months lol

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future? I was planning to buy one, but lack of funds have caused an OCZ drive to sit in my Amazon cart for a very long time.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)? I considered Intel and several others. Had decided on an OCZ because it had good performance and capacity for the money. Things have changed a lot since the last time I went shopping for SSDs however.

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 partial or complete rebuild of my computer every 3-4 years.

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13? 43.6 repeating.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future? Do not currently own but have been very interested in purchasing sooner rather than later.

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 read and have seen other people running, I would either go with an Intel SSD (320/520 series) or Corsair Force GT series.

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 wouldn't say I ever really fully purchase a PC. Just keep adding and changing parts every few months.

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

Yes I do own one, but I want more.

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

OCZ because they're priced pretty good but also have the best 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)?

I incrementally upgrade my PC components every 6-12~ months depending if, say, a major GPU revision gets released.

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

- Yes, I do.


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

- Considering Intel brand because I currently have one and don't want another brand.

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 would say every 2-3 years.

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

Proud Intel 320 owner!  I am not planning on purchasing a new SSD in the near future unless I find an insanely good deal that I can't pass up on a a good, reliable SATA 3 SSD.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
I am not considering one now, but the reason I bought my Intel 320 (120GB btw) was because on Black Friday at Amazon, the prices were ridiculously low.  My 120GB Intel 320 was only $110 after the rebate.  If I had had more money, I would have gotten the 160GB which I think was $140 or $145 after MIR.  All the prices were ridiculously low and I'd heard great things about Intel SSDs.

If I were to buy a new SSD I'd go with one of the reliable, well known companies such as Kingston, Intel, Samsung, etc.

Currently, the Intel 520 scares me a bit because they went with a SandForce Controller which has known reliability issues with other companies such as OCZ, Corsair, etc.  Hopefully Intel figured out how to fix these issues.


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 or over 3 years depending on money and what new technology has come out.

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

I'm American, but the rules said all questions had to be answered so to be technically correct, it should be answered by everyone.

The answer is 127

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

No, I do not own a SSD. Yes, I look daily for deals at the egg.


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

Intel is tops on my list because it covers all the bases on product build and reliability. Corsair, and OCZ follow simply because of decent reviews and price point.


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)?

This is the first rig I built and it's fast approaching it's second birthday. I got the itch to build another. Short answer, 2-3 yrs

4) just in case... 43.66666666...... Or 127.

(Yeah i edited in the 127, although without brackets i would duel anyone with pistols at 30 paces it's not 127.)

(125 plus (45 divided by 3)) minus 13 = 127
