1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future? Nope. Yes, I am looking forward to buying on as an drive.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)? Intel, Corsair or OCZ. Maybe Kingston. I prefer a combination of all the options, but I lean towards realiability and price per dollar.

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 never buy a whole new PC, but I do have a yearly hardware budget which I use to upgrade my current system.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future? I currently own 3 SSDs. I am thinking about getting a 240gb in the not so far future.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)? I like the corsair drives. Corsair is a reliable brand and I have 3 SSDs from them to prove it (they all work great!)

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 do occasional upgrades, but i build from bottom up about every 3 years.

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

Sadly, but i do not ( still in college). Hopefully when I fulfill my pre-reqs and transfer over to a 4 year I'll probably buy 1 smile.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 Samsung. Mainly because of highly reputable and recommended SSDs in the market according to reviews and reading threads. Though I wish I can afford an Intel SSD; price/ budget would be a key role in my decision, second would be performance, then reliability. After that lets hope its worth it lol

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'd say every other year, 18-24 months. I'm doing all the paperwork right now wink.gif.

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

Don't live in Canada

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Yes, I have an Intel X25-M 120GB SSD and a 256 GB Samsung model in my Macbook Air. Every computer I build in the future will most likely contain a SSD as the boot drive. I'm probably not going to get any high capacity SSDs or put more than one in a computer.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
I went with Intel because of the favorable reviews on Newegg. It seemed to to have the most reliability, which is the my top priority in considering hard drives. Performance is second, at least for drives inside the computer. Capacity isn't an issue as externals are cheap (at least before Thailand :/ ).

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 definitely go for longevity, and that's why I have such a preference for reliability. I'm very picky about how my SSDs are used and try to keep them below 60% filled. I had the same laptop for 4 years, but a year ago, I got my desktop for home and laptop for school.

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

I own an OCZ Vertex 60GB

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

I would plan to buy something that's NOT OCZ. Possible Intel or Kingston.

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 but a computer is an on-going investment, constantly evolving it!

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

(US) 125+45/3-13 = 127

Yay!- Free stuff!

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 at this time. I was not planning on purchasing one, but I figured eventually when I ran into the money I would get one.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
I know very little about SSD's, but I do know that Intel is very reliable, as well as Crucial and Samsung. I would probably go with one of those, but I would have to do more research before I come to any conclusive decisions.

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 never really "purchase a new PC." I always upgrade a little at a time on my current one, and eventually after 3 or more years, I will end up with a computer that contains little to no parts that it did 3-4 years ago. SO, I guess you could say over 3 years if you like.

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
I do not live in canada, but it said answer all the questions, so: (125+45)/3)-13 = 43 2/3 or if expected not to add parentheses than 125+45/3-13 = 127
