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

I do and plan on putting one in any new rig I build or upgrade.


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 Intel or Samsung for my next purchase purely for 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)?

Each PC I own gets a new part every 3 months at a minimum.

In.

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

I currently do own a SSD and I will be willing to purchase a larger one (currently using a 60GB one) If prices go down.

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

Intel, Corsair. reliability is the most important factor for me then I go by performance then price. Brand really doesn't matter much to me, because a great product is a great product.

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 upgrade major components in my computer once every year around Christmas when I have some extra money.

IN!

1) I do not currently own an SSD which is why im entering in the first place, and yes i am planning to buy an SSD in the near future when the price drops.
2) If im buying a new SSD, im going with either Intel 520 series because they are reliable, or im going with Crucial M4's because they are FAST
3) I purchase a new PC every 4ish years however i do upgrade small things along the way.
4) As a Canadian, i know that 125+45 / 3 -13 = 127

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Currently own an Agility 2 120GB and I am looking to upgrade to SATAIII/6Gbps 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 a fan of the Agility series, good price for the performance and have not had any reliability issues so would be looking at an Agility 3, possibly a Vertex. Would also consider Corsair's Force drives also, all depends on the right 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)?
Upgrade the "core" computer(CPU/Mobo/RAM) about every 2-3 years. Video cards are usually 12-18 months.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
No, the current cost of ssd's keeps me from buying them over other components.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
At the moment, and have been looking at ocz and fusionio's pci ssd's. But I'd use any if for free

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)?
Complete? Never, but I upgrade parts as new ones come out and then become affordable

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

Im not canadian, but the answer is 43.667
