Win an Intel 520 Series SSD! - Page 185  

post #1841 of 1974
Answers are going to be in bold
1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
I currently do not own one, but after I finish collage (and being poor hopefully..) I will have enough to fork out the cash for an SSD

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Intel and Crucial would be the to major brands I would consider, they have great products for the money and they make the whole drive at the factory so its all one companies stuff.

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 have gone through a new PC about every year mainly upgrading to desktop platform then selling those rigs to friends.

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
Even though im not canadian.. the answer is 43.67.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?: Yes when money permits. Once you go SSD you never go back!

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?: It would either be Samsung, Crucial or Intel as they make the best performance/cost/quality SSD devices.

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 3 years, I build them to last.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
No, do not currently own. If I could justify the price, yes i would be guying on in the near future, but i fear it may be a while, (1-2 years?).

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Love the Intels, Samsung is nice from what i've heard, but I would have to say I'm pretty sold on the Mushkin Chronos. All the reviews I have read say it's great, not to spendy, great speed, and I have always had great luck with anything Mushkin.

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)?
New hardware for me comes around every 6-9 months, but as far as a whole new build (i.e. a whole new PC), usually over 5+ years between complete overhauls.

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
So confused by this, not from Canada myself thought so maybe that's why. Answer is 127 btw...

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Never, but I would get one if they wouldn't be that expensive.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Intel or Corsair. They are fastest, most 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)?
Every 18-24 months.

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
Since you have to divide first it's 127. (Not Canadian)

post #1847 of 1974
1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
I currently own a Patriot Torx2 32GB SSD that I'm using with a z68 as SSD Cache on my boot drive. I do plan on buying others / more 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.)?
My primary choice will be the OCZ Revodrive series for two reasons. One, it doesn't use any of my SATA ports (I have alot of magnetic media drives for data storage), and two, it's much faster than alot of other SSD's that use SATA even at 6gbps.


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 rebuild my computer or at least upgrade it every 3-6 months. Usually I will either sell the parts I swap out or add them to my server if they are compatible.

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
(Not from Canada, but I'm French Canadian by birth so...) 53 ⅔
post #1848 of 1974
1)
Yes I own an Corsair SSD Force Series 3, 120GB 2.5" but I think 120gb is too small
2)
I already own one, but I want to buy a new one becouse 120gb is to little, but im planing to upgrade my graphics card and case so it is going to haft to wait
3)
Well I dont buy a whole new PC i just upgrade it when I have the money and when new things come out and when my old parts beginn to lagg on games i would like to play
4)
Im not canadian but the anwer is 127 or 43,66666666666667

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

I do not currently own a SSD. I plan in purchasing two SSDs, one for my OS and another for when ArmA III and to use for other games.

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

Really, the only two brands I am considering are OCZ because of the speed/performance of their drives and Intel because of their 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 buy parts every 12-18 months or so. I have yet to do a complete rebuild.

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

I am not a Canadian Resident, but the answer would be 127 if you follow order of operations (ie. PEMDAS).
