Win an Intel 520 Series SSD! - Page 16  

post #151 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 an SSD and I am thinking purchasing one sometime in the future if I can find a decent price for a 256GB or 512GB drive for my laptop.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
I am looking at Intel for the quality of their drives, Crucial for performance, Kingston for the lower price, and OCZ for low price 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)?
I prefer to either build my own machines when it comes to desktops and only tend to do major overhauls every 2 years or so. As for laptops I tend to grab older models for cheap and just do some minor upgrades like drives, memory and cpu upgrades when needed every 4 years.

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
The only correct answer is AMERICA biggrin.gif

Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
o Yes, I own an OCZ Vertex 2 240GB SSD (<-- so many reliability issues, had to RMA 3 times for the same issue each time). Although I can never have enough seeing that I have so many computers with archaic broken HDD’s to fix.


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

o I was considering a Corsair Force 90GB for a repair I have to do for a family member because I’m a poor student. I would get an Intel for myself if I had the money though because they seem to have the highest customer satisfaction/reliability ratings. Other brands (other than Intel) I would consider are Corsair, Crucial, Samsung, Mushkin, and G.Skill (All for Price, Performance, Reliability and Customer Service)
edit: decided on an OCZ Agility 120GB because by price it was less than a dollar/gig after rebates and stuff. If only I could get the intel for my laptop so I can finally fix it rolleyes.gif
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)?
o Whenever I have enough money; I purchase a computer parts whenever I can, and then upgrade and build myself. My family computer usually lasts for about 10 years or so though.

(For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
o N/A – Born in America. Although the answer’s 127

1. no, I have one being sent to me in about 2 weeks though, and then I will buy another one when money allows.

2. the one I am getting soon is an OCZ, I chose it because i got 120GB Agility 3 for $100 with some trading. I will be considering OCZ, Patriot, and Intel for my next one

3. I am currently on a 2 year schedule for building a new PC, as the computer I bought 2 years ago was lost in a house fire 1 year ago.. and I'm now in the process of building a new computer. I do purchase new parts usually every few months to try to keep current, or to replace lower quality items I went with during a big purchase to keep costs low.

4. I'm not Canadian, but the answer is either 43.66666666667 in given order, or 127 if given proper order.
