Win an Intel 520 Series SSD! - Page 174  

post #1731 of 1974
1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Yes, I own a pair of 80Gb Intel X-25M SSDs and just picked up a 240Gb Mushkin Cronos Deluxe 240Gb. I plan to buy another SSD in the next year when the 512Gb capacity becomes more affordable.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
My brand(s) of choice are Intel and Samsung. But with some lower priced offerings, I will try another brand based on a lower price/performance ratio. But ultimately, reliability is critical.

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)?
Since getting married, my 6-8 month major upgrade cycle has slowed down to about every 18 months. So I rank at every 18-24 months.

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

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 at this time,didn't feel the need to do so.Now that the market price has become more to my liking price/performance/space.
Yes I do plan purchasing a SSD in the near future with the new build.


2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
The brands that I've been looking at are OCZ,Crucial,Muskin and of course Intel in no particular order.I'm looking in the 60GB to 120GB range for this purchase,with good solid read/write speeds,and good peer reviews. I don't think it's necessary to speed a bundle of cash for faster boot time etc for what I do with my computer.


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 tend to only use my hardware until it gets to the point of it not doing what I need it to do.Or when I feel that a component is nearing it's demise so with
that said I'd say 2yrs to 3yrs is around the time when I start to think about doing a total upgrade(next 2 to 3 months). Although I do upgrade my gpu every 12 to 18 months.

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

Yes, a 64 gb. Samsung SSD, however to my dismay after buying it i have watched the space disappear without installing anything but windows on it, I set Shadow Storage to 5%, moved user files to my other drive with regedit, deleted hyberfile/disabled hybernation, and used diskcleaner every day, yet i have been losing space every day, even if i do not use it on a particular day. For example i left for a trip on thursday it had 34 gigabytes, and when i returned on sunday it had shrunk to 30.6. And this is without the pc even being turned on frown.gif So i did plan on purchasing a new SSD sometime soon to replace this strange one.


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

Certainly not Samsung again, I was looking at the OCZ Agility 120 gigabyte because it was on sale at Microcenter, and had a good speed for the price. but i think i missed the sale tongue.gif also the reviews were good for the most part, so it looked like a good deal.


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 just recently (2 months ago) built my first PC and plan on building a new one every other year, while upgrading certain parts of the current one every year.


hope i win so i dont need to buy a new one tongue.gif

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
- 80 gb Intel X-25. I would love to upgrade to a larger SSD, but the X-25 is quite fast and it's hard to justify the cost to upgrade.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
- I'm interested in a bigger Crucial M4 for price, reliability, and all the great reviews I have heard from users.

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)?
- It's hard to say because I seem to upgrade piece by piece. For the most part, I upgrade drives whenever I need more storage or one fails, but I generally buy a generation behind and upgrade quite often. It took me 2 years to upgrade everything from my last build except DVD drive, including monitors and keyboard/mouse.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Yes, just recently bought a 256gb M4 for my main rig. It has changed my pc experience dramatically, I would like to win this for my sister.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
M4 due to its price/performance ratio, Intel for its brand 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)?
Every 12 - 18 months, constantly upgrading though.
