Win an Intel 520 Series SSD! - Page 150  

post #1491 of 1974
1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
I do not currently own one. Planning on purchasing one once I educate myself more on them.

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

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)?
Upgrade my PC on a yearly basis, with a few new random components every few months.

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

No I don't. And I never planned to buy one, as I did not think that fast boot and loading isn't super important.

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

Intel, I really look at reliability because I had over $1000+ of parts go bad. Right now, my hitachi HDD broke, but they're not willing to replace it ! ! !

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 I build myself a new rig.

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

127, but not Canadian. Pemdas Ftw.

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, cannot really afford one now. I just finished building this one. I need to put money into other things besides the PC unfortunately.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
I was looking at the Crucial M4 64 GB since it was a good value. I haven't really looked at the Intel ones. A friend of mine has one and has had great luck with it! I would use it for OS, and games like Battlefield 3, Modern Warfare 3 and some benchmarking software (3D Mark 11 and OC Scanner for my GPU

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 my first build, used to own a laptop and a Dell desktop prior. I would love to upgrade mine on a yearly basis if I could swing it haha.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
No I don't currently own one, I was planning on buying one sometime 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)?
Every 12-18 or so.

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 128 GB SSD. The first time using the SSD was like having sex with no condom. Words can only superficially gloss the sensations and incredible awe that using the SSD brings. I plan on buying more, but at current prices, it might be more feasible to do cocaine. I think SSDs per gram is about the same as crack cocaine.

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

Crucial - reliability
Kingston - price, and/or price (if purchasing the HyperX series)

Reliability is the most important factor. Even the slowest SSD outclasses the fastest HDD. Once SSDs become as/more reliable to HDDs, HDDs will mostly be used as coasters and doorstops.

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 build a new P.C. every time someone on the internet challenges my computer manhood. So -- often. Probably less than every year is a refresh of some sort.

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

Haha, Canada.
