Win an Intel 520 Series SSD! - Page 148  

post #1471 of 1974
1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Yes I do, I have an OCZ Solid 3 and LOVE IT! But I did want an Intel SSD....but newegg had an amazing special on this one!

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
I decided on my OCZ Solid 3, and so far NOT a single complaint. Never crashed, corrupted, or given me a fit....only thing it gives me is 13 second boot times!!

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 get the urge to build something about every year....about tax time lol smile.gif

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
No, and yes. When funds are available, I'll be purchasing one as fast as possible.
2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
OCZ. They have a wider variety than most brands, and give you some bang for your buck. The cool branding on their drives is a plus, as well. wink.gif
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)?
12-18 months, depending. Tax-refund money usually pays for our PC goodies.

1) I own a Crucial M4 128GB. I'm definitely going to be purchasing another SSD in the another year or two once I expand my gaming collection.

2) Samsung, Crucial and Intel. Overall proven reliability is the determining factor.

3) Typically every 4-5 years. Shorter update period for the video card.

In for the win!

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Yes, a Samsung 470 series. Possibly. They are quite pricey and my original HDD was on the brink of death.. seeing as it was similar priced to a 1TB drive, I just opted for the speed.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Either Samsung, Crucial, or Intel for price/performance and 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)?
Complete overhaul? Never... Just single upgrades every couple of months or so, translating to about 2-3 years for everything to be current enough.

4) Not Canadian biggrin.gif

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Yes, I currently own an SSD and will probably purchase another one 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.)?
Intel/Crucial/Samsung/Corsair for their reliability, performance, and brand, and the deciding factor between them will be the 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)?
Every 2-3 years.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future? A Crucial M4 and I'm looking to upgrade. So small it is, what is one to do with 64gb?! A lot, but that's beside the point!

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)? OCZ, Crucial, or Intel. Most likely the Crucial M4 256gb though for the 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)? Build my first rig in June, bought a laptop in August, and now on my second rig! Basically all the extra cash that doesn't go towards bills and savings. It's addicting!

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13? I'm not Canadian but I choose 43.66666666666667.

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

No, I do not currently own one. Yes, I would like to purchase one in the near future as personal funding allows.

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 OCZ for price, Intel for 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 either purchase or build some form of PC every 18-24 months.

I do not currently own an SSD but I do plan on purchasing one 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.)?
I'm still doing research on brands and models. Most important is performance and price is second.
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 just finished my new build and my last build was 2007, but I also purchased 2 laptops since that time.
