Win an Intel 520 Series SSD! - Page 188  

post #1871 of 1974
1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?

I do not currently own an SSD. I am planning on purchasing one 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.)?

I'm looking to replace my 5 year old RAID 0 array with an SSD, so I need one that has at least a 256GB capacity, and in that capacity range, the Crucial SSDs look like the best Price vs Performance, and the new Firmware they've released looks like their reliability went through the roof.

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 haven't built myself a new PC in well over 5 years, simply because of my lack of income. If I had the money to do so, I'd most likely upgrade every 5 years and use my old PC as a Media Center/Server (Minecraft/Ventrilo/etc).

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

I'm totally not Canadian, but it's not fair they get to do math and us 'mericans do not, so I'm going to answer this question. The answer is 43.666 repeating.

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

I currently own an OCZ SDD. I've been looking into Intel SSD's due to the high regard for reliability.

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

I would probably get an Intel because ive heard amazing things about 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 change out my parts every 3 years or so.

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

Yes, currently a Corsair Force 3 60GB as cache on my Z68 board. Will probably purchase a bigger one in the future to act as a main drive, once the 256GB models become more affordable.

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

Whatever gives me the best speed for the lowest price. I backup often so I'll take slightly less reliable for less money and better 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)?

Couple hundred in upgrades every 3-4 months.

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

125 + 45 / 3 - 13 = 127
