Win an Intel 520 Series SSD! - Page 179  

post #1781 of 1974
1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?

Yes, a Crucial 64Gb C300 series ssd. and am not pleased with the performance. yes i want to by a new one with more space and faster read and write times.


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

I would consider Intel or another Crucial, but probably Intel. my brother just bought a a new Intel ssd drive and that thing is FAST. puts mine to shame.


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 every 3-5 years. but i just usually replace parts as needed though.

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

I don't, I am planning on purchasing one to run my OS on.

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

I'm thinking Intel or OCZ. I've worked with Intel SSD's and I no problems or hiccups. And I've always heard good things about OCZ.

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 just finished my first computer build and I'm already parting out things for my next build. But that's going to be down the road, probably in the summer or during winter.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future? Yes, I have a 60gb and need more space. Yes I will be purchasing more as my professional needs expand.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)? Intel, corsair, crucial. Why? These seem to be the best players in the industry in terms of pricepoint and performance. Reputation is also a major factor!

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. I just did my first build and wish to expand my computing power to match my professional needs.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
No I do not possess my own SSD however i have bought one and worked with another, Yes i am planning on purchasing one in the near future and turning my current Hard Drive into a beer coaster/external.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
So many to choose from well from experience i have three on the top of my mind, Intel, Crucial and Mushkin. Mushkin Chronos 128GB is quick but my friend that has one has had a few issues with very few crashes here and there which may have been caused by the drive we don't know for sure lately it has remained stable. Crucial M4 128GB I like alot, I bought one for my Fiance's Christmas present over a Mushkin for a few reasons, the reliability, the nifty data transfer cable and software, and Micron does business with my current employer. Intel is a consideration for ultimate reliability over speed but they are EXPENSIVE. Yes Intel does do business with us as well so they aren't excluded. In order i would say Price then Reliability then Speed. For the price over reliability that is why the M4 I am leaning towards but i may want to try an Intel or go with a Chronos Deluxe it may come down to a dice roll.

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)?
well let's see Tardis got going in 2010 into 2011 i got the Mogwai (Asus 1015PN) in april of 2011, the Valkyrie (Asus U36SD) for my Fiancee for christmas, and yesterday i got an used Asus N82jq that i plan to fix up use it and turn around and sell to my parents when i can afford the laptop i want. So 12 months or less i suppose but they are not all for me!

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)? Kingston SSDNow V200 SV200S37A/128G...seems like the best price for performance, Ill be doing more research before I buy though smile.gif

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....I have been trending every 2 years in January with the occasional upgrades during the year.

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

I just purchased a Mushkin Enhanced Chrono 120GB. The price was unmatched at $142. I may purchase more if the price is right, but I really have no need for another 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.)?

I just purchased the Mushkin. It has awesome reviews and was very well priced. If I was in the market with a larger budget, I would go Crucial or Intel.


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 think the common theme here is about 3 years. I build my most recent build 6 months ago, in about June/July of 2011. Before that it was Christmas of 2008 (I believe). But it seems as if I am always changing or modifying something.

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

I have a 60go Force 3 of Corsair..If i have the money im considering buying a bigger one or a second one to raid 0 cause its not enough.


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

Well intel are the most costy but the most reliable but i dont have the money for this so im usualy go with Corsair cause i own around 5 stuff of Corsair.( case, h100, memory, speaker, etc)


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 two years, but im usually upgrading piece per piece of hardware. I will soon change my 6950 for a newer one when 6xx series come out so I can compare Nvidia with amd

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

yes, m4 (sig rig). love to, but probably not. ($)


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

all major brands. not an informed enough consumer yet.


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)?

historically, over 3 years. very recent historical data points to a possible shift though. smile.gif

I'm planning to build a new computer soon, one of the components would be a SSD
2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
I was mainly thinking about Corsair, but nothing was set in stone yet. Mainly depends on whatever delivers the best reliability at the lowest possible Price/GB
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 been a small 5 years since i last bought a new computer. At the time, it was state of the art, and has just about now served it's purpose.
4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?

yep, maybe depends on money available

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
idk about brand, performance and reliability would be the top factors

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)?
