Win an Intel 520 Series SSD! - Page 180  

post #1791 of 1974
1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?

Yes, its a Crucial M4. Planning to, soon if there's one on sale.

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

I might get a Crucial, maybe Intel or the OWC ones. Main reason is reliability, I'm happy and satisfied with my Crucial M4, no problems there. As for Intel and OWC, I have heard great things about them in terms of reliability so might as well if the price is good enough. Performance is important as well but I would rate it under reliability and above 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)?

It varies but I would say (in terms of averaging it out) it would fit in the 18-24 months


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

125 + 45 / 3 - 13
125 + 15 - 13
140 - 13
Equals

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Yes, I currently own an OCZ Solid 3 SSD 120GB, yes I was planning on purchasing my next computer with these brand names ONLY!
Asus, Intel, G.Skill & Corsair. Just those four only.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Crucial for performance(reliability) but looking at the write speed on these M4 it doesn't seem to great on a Sata 6Gb connection but Intel is solid and well worth the venture to see what their SSD's can do, after all there Processors are top notch!

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 from the ground up every 2 - 3 years and with no regrets, I've learned a lot just from building and rebuilding machines, and to have the please of building my own makes the whole experience worth it.

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

I live in the US, California

Hye Intel and OCN members. Thanks for the nice SSD contest. I have answered all required questions below biggrin.gif

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
I don't own any SSD now but really interested to purchase one in the future.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
I heard a lot of good things about OCZ and Intel SSD products in terms of price wise, good performance as well as reliability. I really wanted to start using SSD especially for running bios and favorite games. Of course, my best choice would be OCZ or Intel at all time.

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'm a student and do not really have a lot of stable money to buy a new PC system every single year. I love to see people modding and build their 'dream' PC especially when a new technology arise. Still, If I have a choice, I would consider to upgrade my PC for at least every 3 years smile.gif

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Currently i i do not own an SSD, im am planning to buy one for my new rig within the next couple of weeks

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Im considering to buy an M4 crucial, because i got it recommended in here

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)?
Untill now ive only had 1 pc, and that one i got allmost 3 years ago. so that would be every 2-3 years

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

Yes, I own a 90GB OCZ Vertex 2. I'm planning on buying another SSD for my laptop in the future.

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

Plextor PX-M3 or PX-M3P, Samsung 830, Crucial M4, Intel 510 or 520, or maybe a Kingston HyperX. All of them seem to have the fastest reliable SSDs on the market right now and at a decent price point.

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)?

Right now I'm on roughly a 3 year cycle, buying when I can afford to build a new one, though I do upgrade it.

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

Yes, I have a 120GB OCZ Agility. I am probably planning to purchase two more, one for my laptop and another for my desktop.

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

Samsung, Kingston, Crucial, and Intel all seem to be what I am leaning towards for my next purchase on an SSD.

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)?

There really hasn't been a time for a new PC, I just purchase new parts to upgrade.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Nope, & Nope. Out of my price range.

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

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
post #1798 of 1974
1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?

Yes i own one(intel x25 80GB); I would like to get a larger SSD for operating system/games

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

Intel or OCZ, would like to know the difference between the two since i have the intel one already. I hear good things about both in performance, and that is the main reason i am on an SSD

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 or upgrade new box(made my current model so it was suited for upgrades)

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Yes, I own a Crucial C300 128gb and love it. At the moment my C300 does everything I need it to but, the Crucial M4's look nice a couple in a raid config would be fun. biggrin.gif
2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Crucial or Intel just because of there performance and 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)?
For me building a new computer depends on what technology is out and if I think the performance increase justifies the cost. I normally build a new computer every few years but am constantly upgraded my current one.
4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
Not Canadian but its 127

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
I have a 3 year old 1.8" MTRON 32GB PATA SSD for my laptop and it breathed new life into it. Works perfectly to this day thumb.gif
I am looking at getting a desktop SSD soon.

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 these four brands - mostly for performance, reliability, brand recognition, and price:
Mushkin Enhanced Chronos 240GB ($269); Crucial M4 2.5" 64GB ($105); Corsair Force Series GT 120GB ($175); Intel 510 120GB ($240)

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)?
In this economy - definitely over 3+ years mad.gif

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
I'm not Canadian, eh? You hosers biggrin.gif
