Win an Intel 520 Series SSD! - Page 23  

post #221 of 1974
1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future? Yes, I do own 1 64gb M4, which is not enough, and will purchase a 128gb one soon, just waiting for prices to fall.
2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)? I planning on buying either a m4 or a 320, since those are in my price range, and the reliability of both are 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)? I don’t buy new pc’s, just upgrade my components in the one I have, usually annually.

1) Yes, I own an SSD. No, I do not plan on purchasing another anytime soon.

2) Almost any brand is alright with me. Price to performance ratio is the primary concern for me, then brand (customer service/RMA hassle), then reliability.

3) I buy a new computer every 3+ years.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
No, looking to purchase 2-3 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.)?
Brands: Crucial, Intel, OWC, Corsair. Why: performance, price, reliability, recommendations from friends, family, and reviewers.

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 the performance increase that I would get out of a new PC but I will usually start fresh every 2-3 years.

Not Canadian

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future? I currently own an SSD. Yes I am planning on purchasing one or more 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 am considering price per performance of an SSD regardless of brand. I will generally look at OCZ, Crucial, Patriot, and Corsair SSDs.

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)? Probably upgrade to a new platform every 6 months.

1. No I do not. I had my last laptop fall to the floor, and the hard drive died (everything else unharmed). I am finding an SSD a viable option now that I don't want something that will break like that again. Will I buy one in the immediate future? Probably not. However, if the offer presents itself, I might buy one.

2. If I were to buy one, it would be the one that gets good reviews from critics and users. I don't have a specific brand in mind, but if I could pick up an Intel one at a steal, I would get it. Otherwise I will look for price/performance.

3. I generally buy a new computer every 2-3 years.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future? I do, a 120GB Intel 510 series. I do, in fact plan on purchasing one very soon.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)? As my Intel SSD has been nothing but great for me I am definitely looking at Intel again, but I'm also checking out Crucial, Corsair, and Samsung

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)? As my next build is really only my second official rig, I guess I fall within the 18-24 month group

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13? I'm a resident of the US wink.gif

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
-No I do not own one currently but if I will get the money to buy one, I mean why not, sure.-
2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
-Well for that kind of card i would most likely get the 510 Series 120GB because the pricing is not over the top (although it is quite a lot) the read and write speeds are amazing and just overall, it is exactly what a person would need.-
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 a new PC every like 24 months.. and sometimes upgrade it in between (I custom build it)
