Yes, Crucial M4 64GB for my sig rig. I need one for my OS.

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

Crucial, Intel, Kingston, Samsung Would purchase these brands for reliably.

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)?

Seems as though I like to keep with things so I will usually upgrade at least every couple years. At bare minimum upgrade video cards.

No. Yes, very much so.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Intel for now. Most review sites agree that performance is basically the same all across, it is the price and most importantly, the reliability--or the guarantee of it --that matters.

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)?
Depends on cash and games that are out. Usually upgrade parts in between every 3-4 years.

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
U.S.A. resident.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
I own one but its a cheapy one I bought with a best buy gift card. If i win the lottery or come upon a vast amount of money ill get another SSD but atm they are out of my price range. Need a new GPU first frown.gif

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
I dont know much about SSDs but Ive heard Intel and Corsair make good ones, so I lean towards them over others.

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 just upgrade random parts but probably around 3 years.

Not from canada but answer is 127. (125 + (45/3) - 13)

Yes, in April (in fact I want to buy a new computer)

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Crucial M4, because everyone says it's the best

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 like to keep my things for long time

post #1868 of 1974
1) No. When I can purchase a Terabyte SSD for $100, then I shall own one.

2) Whichever company has the best budget/price ratio. I always double-check multiple reviews from a number of sources.

3) As soon as it's affordable to do so.

4) Not in Canada, but I'm close by.
