Win an Intel 520 Series SSD! - Page 186  

post #1851 of 1974
1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
I do not own an SSD at the moment. I have been planning on purchasing at least one SSD in the next few years.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Intel (Impressive performance with decent low power consumption, overall good track record), Samsung (Great low power consumption & random read/writes; impressive track record), OCZ (Great price per gigabyte; impressive performance), Crucial (Great low power consumption; impressive performance), Corsair (Decent performance per 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)?
My typical cycle is to replace the most outdated computer I own every 2-3 years.

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
I am not a Canadian resident (no math equation for me yessir.gif).

Edit: Not to go against the flow, but I decided to bold the questions instead of the answers redface.gif.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
No I dont but I definitely am going to buy one when I purchase my new rig in a few months.

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 either an Intel or Corsair brand SSD. All of those categories are important to me, reliability and price probably being the most important.

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 at least. I build them to last.

I currently own one and plan on purchasing more in the future as the cost per GB comes down.

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

Intel or Crucial. I currently own a Crucial drive and it has run flawless. I have heard good things about Intel drives. I mainly look for drives that have high performance and are reliable.
