1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Yes, OCZ Vertex 2 120 GB SSD as a boot drive. I'd like to purchase another, but i'm happy using large capacity HDDs for storage. SSDs are expensive and my computer seems quick already.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
I like OCZ. They're a good brand I can vouch for. A bit expensive, but their performance is one of the best i've seen so far. I've heard good things about other drives including Corsair and Muskin. I haven't heard much on Intel SSDs, but if their price/performance ratio is great, I might jump at it if it's not too costly.

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 my own computers, so I tend to upgrade over time. Once my pc becomes too slow to play the games I want to play, i'll upgrade. So my answer would be over 3 years. Expensive hobby.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
I just brought myself a used SSD! Not new, its too expensive. I'll buy a bigger one if it's good as they say it is.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
If I purchase one, I alway tend to go for the name brand like Kingston, Patriot (eh? they make SSD?), Crucial, Corsair, ADATA, etc. The most important factor is the price per performance. The name brand is 3rd after that.
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 new computer when my old one break, and I tend to use whatever leftover one that still works to make the new one.
4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
Non-canadian, so no need to answer!

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

Yes. In desktop and laptop. Might purchase another one in the near future for girlfriend's laptop.

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

Intel only. For performance and reliability. Also, having one program (Intel Toolbox) to manage SSDs is more convenient for me.


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.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
No, I do not currently own a SSD, I am considering purchasing one 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 considering everything at the moment, because anything I get is going to be faster than my HDD. Mainly concerned with price 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)?
I purchase a new or upgrade my current PC whenever I need my computer to do something it can't currently do, the most recent computer I built at the release of starcraft 2, the previous one lasted 4 years.
4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
I am not Canadian, but 127.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future? No/Yes

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)? I am particularly fond of Samsung & Intel products. Both make a very reliable product, so it's really a toss up between those 2.

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 usually build a new system about every 4 years or so. I am currently piecing together one right now. Buying parts here & there when I can...Just had a baby, and diapers are kinda expensive. tongue.gif

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13? Not sure if I am supposed to even post this question...but anyways...not Canadian. thumb.gif

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

Yes, and yes for more storage 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'd go with any brand that is reliable and good performance, but if I have to choose one I'd say Crucial because it's reliable and has the best 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)?

Over three years, depending if I feel like upgrading!

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

127.

Currently own a X-25 80GB Intel SSD. I'm planning on getting one or more 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.)?
Mushkin, Intel, Corsair

Quality and speed. Mushkin's been hanging with the top for the price. Corsair has been doing well for speed. Intel for reliability, my X-25 has been running good for almost 2 years now.

New PC usually every 4 years (parts rebuild)
