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 but i would love to get one... i heard they're amazing

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)? i was thinking about getting a cheap intel ssd but i decided to go with a ram upgrade instead.

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?
Yes i do but only a weak sata II OCZ 64GB frown.gif
I plan on building a computer for my friend soon and will prob give him my SSD and buy a 128GB model smile.gif

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
OCZ or Intel all the way... These two have lived up to mine and my computer nerd buddies to run the smoothest while not being too expensive. Ive found that OCZ though has the best bang for your buck IMO.
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 build a new computer for myself about every 2-3 years with about a $1000 budgets...its about that time again smile.gif

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
Not Canadian eh, im american lol, but um 127?

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
I do not currently own a SSD and planned on getting an SSD, but never had the money to go through with it.

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 get an SSD, I would look at Intel, Crucial, and OCZ for performance reasons rather the price. Reliability seems high as all 3 brands are pretty well known. Personally I'm unsure about the actual numbers in real-world performance, but haven't heard too too many negative comments for those 3 brands.

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 I purchase a new PC and 2 - 3 years if I get that splurge to upgrade. Mainly stay with whatever runs what I need it to run at the current time and seeing as school is taking up a lot of time, probably 3+ years for my next PC upgrade/build.

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
Depending on how you look at the question it is either:
125 + 45
3 - 13
which would be...
170
-10
= -17

or

125 + 45/3 - 13
which is 375/3 + 45/3 - 39/3
= 381/3
= 127

1) I recently acquired my first SSD. It's a 32GB Patriot PS100 and it's not exactly a good SSD... I'd love another SSD but I can't make room in the budget since it isn't "necessary."

2) The brands that I would purchase are: Intel, Crucial, and OCZ. I'm all about good speeds and reliability with a price tag that matches. As it isn't something I can totally justify though, price is playing the biggest role.

3) I replace components often but I'd say my entire PC changes every 12 months, with the exception of hard drives.

4) I'm not Canadian!

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
No i dont currently own an SSD drive, but looking at performance figures i plan to buy a Sata3 SSD drive in the future to reduce boot time.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
In terms of data i have seen SSDs have become more reliable over time and interms of performance figures they are all about the same. but if i had to choose a bramd i would go for crucial or intel as they both offer good technical 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)?
Every 2-3 years, as im only 17 and on a tight budget, insted of buying new PC'S i like to save up and upgrade my, recently i bought an i7-2600k processor and overclocked it sucessfully to 5.1 ghz i belive that with an SSD i could raise the enjoyment factor even higher

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

No, I don't own an SSD but have been reading about them avidly for the past 3 years. Yes, I am currently replacing a now-dead socket 775 computer that lasted me 5 years, but whose motherboard is now fried after flashing the BIOS with a bad ROM.

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

Right now I'm considering either the 520 Series Intel SSDs (which are renowned for their reliability and great warranty, but are a little costly) or a RevoDrive 3 X2 (for the speed, but the horror stories surrounding OCZ worry me). Basically, it's Intel -- the car I really need and which will last me longer than I need it, or OCZ -- the motorcycle I really want but which is probably going to get me killed.

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? Over 3 years, and I build my systems to last that long in the first place (every 4-5). For others? I am an IT, so I help and purchase components/systems for people all the time, both on and off the clock.

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

125 + 45 / 3 - 13 = 125 + 15 - 13 = 127

I am not Canadian, but I just read the Contest Terms and Conditions and see that I am technically required to answer this question even though you guys specified "Canadian Residents Only" in the original post. I see no mention of this in the official terms and conditions.

1) I do not own one right now, but I have thought about buying one since my main HDD have had some problems lately.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)? I've actually been looking at the 520 series you're giving away. Price is alright, performance have been getting great reviews and same with reliability. And Intel as a brand is really good quality all over. At least the Intel products I've had.

3) Not very often. Built a desktop and bought a laptop last year for school and gaming. So maybe every 3 year or in average I'd guess.

4) Norwegian, but the answer is 43,6

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
I don't currently own an SSD. Yes, it would basically be my next upgrade.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
I would only consider Intel or Samsung SSDs. For storage, I would put reliability and reputation/track record far ahead of price. I can deal with buying SSDs that aren't the latest/greatest so long as the reliability is there, and with SSDs the performance difference is not great enough to sacrifice reliability in the name of price.

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 parts every 18-24 months, but not necessarily a new PC. If we're talking new CPU/Mobo, that's closer to 2-4 years - e.g. I would be moving to an IB setup later this year.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
I don't currently have an SSD. I was planning on getting one for my next upgrade.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
I was leaning towards Crucial based largely on frequent recommendations from OCNers. I would go with something else if a good deal came along for a SSD with good reliability. Reliability is probably my first consideration followed by price.

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 4-5 years based on how long I had my last PC. I just started upgrading it bit by bit last November and I still have a little ways to go.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Yes, Crucial C300, got it on sale last year.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Crucial (based on experience), Intel, Samsung and Corsair. Crucial for their reliability and many people have used them with no problems, Intel because of the 300/500 series with their fast performance. Started seeing some good results with Samsung and for Corsair, both my bros have GT and Force 3 and they don't have any problems with them. So mostly I go by reliability/experience of course performance/price will play a big role as well.

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 say 18-24 months, I did go from E8400 to i7 920 to i5 2500K within 2-3 years. Usually if a cheap upgrade is available and performance/efficiency is there, I'll consider it.

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
American, but I would guess 43.7
