post #1611 of 1974
1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Yes. Crucial M4

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Very happy with my M4. Would likely go for another one at a larger capacity. Price is fine and it performs great.

2-3 years

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
The answer is 127 Bikinis. I live in Florida. thumbsupsmiley.png

Yes planning to purchase more in the future as better stuff come out.

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)?
2-3 years.

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

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future? Yes a 50GB Vertex2 for Linux

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
I would like at least a 120GB to put windows on. I'm considering the Crucial M4 and the Plextor M3. Because of their high reliability and great price/performance ratio.

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 don't really have a schedule although this is my 3rd PC since 2009 so I guess annually now.

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13? 127. But I'm from Chicago.

1. I own an SSD (Corsair Force 120) that I use in my desktop, but would love to win the Intel for my laptop.

2. Considering Corsair, Intel, Crucial. Corsair because the one I own has been great. Intel and Crucial based on reputation and performance.

3. Have been building a new PC about once every 6 months or so for somebody in my family or just for fun.

4. Not Canadian.

Yes, 3 crucial m4 64GB. Looking to get a larger capacity SSD

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
considering intel and crucial as they seem to have the best reputation/user appeal

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)?
Never really purchase a whole new PC, usually just upgrade what i've got.

1) Yes I own an SSD. I do plan on purchasing another SSD to compliment mine in RAID 0

2) I am considering a SAMSUNG because that is currently what I have. I found the price to be unbeatable due to a misprint in a paper ad and performance on par with similar high end drives. I own several samsung products and feel reliability and brand loyalty play a role in my influence to own a samsung product. Despite these things I feel I could have gone Intel, OCZ, g.skill, etc. if I came across a good value/performance ratio.

3) This will be my 4th rig since early 2004. I plan on doing a build every 12-18 months just as a matter of recreation.

4) N/A

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

No I do not currently own a SSD. I am planning on purchasing one in the future because I am working with SSD's at work and they are blazing fast.

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

I'm planning on going with an OZC Vertex because of the price and I'm still a student.

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 don't purchase complete PCs, I piece systems together and raid the better parts of old systems. But upgrades are due every 12-18 months.

4. What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?

127

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

No I do not. I plan on buying one if it becomes cost effective. Cost effective being less than $1 per GB.

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

I haven't really done much research yet since they aren't super cheap, but I have heard good things about OCZ and Crucial. I am open to other options of course.

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 can't truthfully answer this as the only time I actually "bought" a PC was about 5 years ago and that was parts for my current build. Which I have been constantly upgrading.
