Win an Intel 520 Series SSD! - Page 178  

post #1771 of 1974
*Rubs his lucky Blarney Stone*

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Yes, currently own an M4, and would love to get another for my wife's laptop, and another for my HTPC eventually.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Since I now have experience with the M4 without a single problem, my most likely course would be to repeat what's worked in the past and get another. Biggest factor is 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)?
Still paying off debt, but almost out of it. Will soon need a computer for my son and either an upgrade or a replacement for my HTPC. I think that might put me in the...every 12-18 mo category?

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, 64gb Kingston. In about 2 years.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Most definitely Intel 320 series, Crucial M4 or Corsair Pro, all of which have the Marvell controller. As far as reliability goes, that's as good as it gets. If Sandforce firmware keep up, I'll definitely consider those too.

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. I always upgrade what I have part by part. In about 2 years I'll probably get a new cpu, motherboard and gpu but everything else is going to stay the same.

Adata is a top choice for me bacause I've had ZERO reliability issues and performance with my current drives is spot on. Mushkin is another choice that I like.

Haven't purchased a new complete computer since 2001. Built my first in 2009 and have continually upgraded. Will probably end up redoing major components every 1.5-2 years.

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

I currently own a 30GB OCZ SSD. Yes, I plan on purchasing another 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.)?

I am considering the Crucial M4 series, because the price/performance is very good in my opinion and the reviews I have read on it have all been very good.

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 PC about every 2-3 years.

why so much stupidity about quebec rules. Just make the winner pay the needed ammount to let him get his prize. ( as my stupid goivernement take a percentage of prizes. I would pay without any problem as it's a little percentage of the value of the prize. no problem here! and everyone here would do the same if they were living here.


It is too hard for you to do this? lazy staff....


Anyway, i'll get out this province as soon as possible. I hate Quebec. As HELL. But you don't have any excuses to exclude quebec from contest.
