1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
I own 2 ssd's and they're set up in RAID 0. Very fast. I was not planning to buy new ssd's until the next gen parts are released.

I build a new computer every 2-3 years. Whenever there is a major upgrade to my current platform (core 2 to i7 920 to i7 3930k)

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Hell yea! Crucial M4 FTW! biggrin.gif I'll be buying one more soon when I build my wife's SFF computer.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Crucial, or Intel. Nothing SandForce based. I choose these two brands because of their proven reliability record and service. Prices for the Crucials are always competitive, but unfortunately, the Intel SSDs are not.

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)?
Once every 5 years at best. It's all upgrading parts.

Thomas Jefferson, eh!

Count me in.

1) No. I do plan on purchasing an ssd eventually, but I'm still hoping for a better price to capacity ratio.

2) OCZ seems popular, but I'm also considering Intel due to their quality.

3) Every 12-18 months.

4) 127

1. Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Yes, I own two Corsairs, a force 3 and a GT in 120gb flavors and a "has not been installed yet" Samsung 256gb for my current build.
Considering upgrades to my other rigs if prices continue to fall after seeing the shot in the arm I got in performance when I upgraded one of my newer rigs.


2. If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Corsair: I have always had good luck with this brand
Samsung: I have had good luck with other Samsung products, highly rated in reviews of their SSD's
Prices = capacity right now for the most part. Drives all seem to be about same price for same size drive excpet for sales/rebates.
I tend to buy based on what brand I have had experience with first, adjusting choices after reading reviews on reliability second. ThenI look at any differences in performance third and then decide if the difference in performance is worth whatever price premium there is for the higher spec part. Not asked for but will offer it anyway, Customer support reports are also looked at closely by me. If it seems a company has poor support I will steer clear. Several tech companies make products out there I would not use if they were given to me free. Several companies on the other side of the coin who rate high enough in CS that I would consider a lower ranked product because I am confident they would do what they could to help me out.


3. How often do you purchase a new PC (every 12months or less, every 12-18 months, 18-24 months, 2-3 years, over 3 years)?
I have not purchased a pre-built PC in 10+ years. I tend to build a new one about once a year, maybe two

4. What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
Not canadian but I came up with 127
