I do not own a SSD at the moment, but I'm planning on buying one in the summer.

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

Probably Samsung or Intel, they both got great performance and support.

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

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
No, don’t currently own one. Yes, am planning on purchasing – and hopefully winning one in the near future.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Intel, or Micron/Crucial because of performance, reliability and the millions in capital purchases they’ve made from my employer
– which keeps me employed.


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)?
Usually every 2-3 years. Am putting together a new one this spring.

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
Not Canadian, so I’m unsure of hoser logic but could be determined:
-17 = (125 + 45) / (3-13)
127 = 125 + (45 / 3) - 13
43 2/3 = 125 + 45 / 3 – 13
120 1/2 = 125 + [45/(3-13)]

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
No, i wish! Most likely not for a while, need to upgrade other components first.


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. Performance and reliability of brand name is very important


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)?
not often, maybe 2+ years. Just bought one in Nov, but, unfortunately for me... it was for my son smile.gif

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
No, but I would love to get my hands on one. Can't really afford to 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 were to buy an SSD at the moment I'd first look toward Intel or OCZ and the most important things to me would be price and reliability. Then performance as a tie-breaker.

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 purchase a whole PC about every 4 years but I upgrade the video card on every year or so.

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
Not Canadian but I'll venture a guess at the cost of shipping.

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

No, but I might in the next year or so as a way to get faster boot times and augment my existing batch of mechanical drives.

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

I would probably consider Intel or OCZ. The main reason would be reliability.

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)?

About every two years at this point; it used to be a lot more often a few years back.

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

127, since I am Canadian. smile.gif

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Yes, I own a Corsair Force 3 120GB. Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future? Yes, for systems I will likely be building.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
My current top choice is Corsair by a wide margin for their customer support reputation and price/performance value (especially considering frequent rebates and their reputation for honoring when their rebate company "fails").

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 have purchased a new PC (notebook or desktop) about once every 12 months for the past 3 years.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
I don't currently own one, but I plan to hopefully this year.
2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
From what I researched a little while back, most likely Intel for a good performance/reliability, followed by Corsair.
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)?
Most likely every two years, just perpetually upgrading the most outdated parts first over a long time. I'm poor ):

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

NO. I would like to purchase one in the next year or two.

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

I read a lot of reviews and it appears that Intel and Corsair are the best brands. Specifically there seem to be issues with the Sandforce based drives that I would rather avoid.

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)?

18-24 months

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

43 if you are doing integer math...43 2/3 otherwise.
