Win an Intel 520 Series SSD! - Page 160  

post #1591 of 1974
1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?

Yes. Yes for every computer here on out.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Currently I am only considering Intel for any of my relatives due to reliability(less tech support). As for myself what matters is 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)?
For myself its about every 5 years it seems.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
-YES! I have an Intel 320 (120 GB) for Windows 7 and all my games. But I want a bigger one, or maybe another of the same and Raid 'em. Or just a whole bunch of them and forget old HDD's altogether (if price ever comes down).

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
-Intel, can't beat the warranty. SSD's are so much faster, reliability is more important to me than speed/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)?
-Entire PC every 3 years, major upgrades every 12-18 months.

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

Yes I do. I own 2 Intel x-25 M's Love them, but the capacity is limited to 80GB. Yes I want to purchase a larger SSD

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

Intel or Crucial M4

I want Reliability over anything else. These 2 have both the Reliability 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 upgrade every 3-4 Years I buy parts like Vid cards and drives maybe every other year.

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

Yes I do own one. Yes I do as the one I have now is running out of space.

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

Probably Intel, Crucial or Corsair as they all seem to great reliability and SSDs are getting cheaper now.

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)?

Around 3 years for me. Some less important parts will be swapped out though.

No and Yes.

Not sure. It will depend on price, size, reliability, and performance, in that order.

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 to 3 years as funds and performance needs dictate.

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. I would like to own one but cant afford one at the moment.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)? If i did become finacially able to afford one then i would look into all the companies producing SSDs to compare reliability and performance and what if any reviews say about each product.

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 have to say its over 3 years. I upgrade as I can afford.

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13? Are you sure this isnt for Quebec residents only? tongue.gif Canadian resident: 44. I better not lose out just cause i havent done math in almost 20 years rolleyes.gif

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

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 upgrade parts around every year, depending on what I need more.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Currently have a 1st gen OCZ Agility 30GB and an Intel 320 80GB. I'll probably buy another within the next year.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Since Sandforce controllers have a bad reputation, I'd go for Intel or Crucial. Might consider the 520 if it turns out to be reliable or if I win one.

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)?
Full upgrade every ~4 years. Incremental upgrades every few months.

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
not Canadian
