post #331 of 1974
1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?

Yes! Ofcourse! I love them.


2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Cosair, or Crucial M4.
Because Crucial Has top notch performance with reliability, rock solid marvel controllers. and is relatively cheap for Sata 6.
Even though Corsair has Sandforce controllers, it has one of the best reliability in its class, with speed performance too!


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)?
Every 5-10 years.


Edit: For the people who can't do math: 125 + (45 / 3) - 13 = 127

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Don't own one, but do plan on purchasing. With the triopoly of HDD still gouging prices, it seems its time to finally take the plunge into SSD's
2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Intel, Crucial and Kingston came to mind, Intel having SLC and higher reliability for a higher price of course.
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)?
2-4 years, depending on my economic position.
4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?

I don't currently own one, but I'm planning on buying one soon for my new build.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
I've been considering Intel, Crucial and OCZ. Reliability and performance are the two most important things, so I'm leaning more toward Intel/Crucial.

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 build a new PC every 4 years or so, but I make updates between builds if necessary.

I'm not Canadian!

In! In! I am so in!

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

I currently do. Will be purchasing one near christmas time maybe...

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

I'm considering Samsung, Intel, and Corsair, because the price:performance ratios are the best from what i've heard.

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 really, My current rig just changes bit by bit every month or so until one day it's suddenly not the same PC i had six months ago.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
I Don't Own an SSD. I'm planning on purchasing one Christmas time or early next year.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
If i was to buy one today i Would buy Crucial, Intel, Samsung, Kingston, or Corsair. And Definitely NOT under any circumstance an OCZ Drive. Crucial would be my first choice because they have a perfect balance of reliability, Performance and Pricing. Intel and Samsung Drives seem more reliable according to reviews however they are a little bit over what i can afford. Samsung performs better (According to benchmarks) But almost everyone says that Intel SSD's last the longest so in my eyes they are equal. All other drives i referenced are a step down from Intel/Crucial/Samsung but are all FAR more reliable than anything OCZ put on the market

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 really. I mean in the last year i bought/put together two systems and before that its been 2 years when i bought my i7 920 system brand new

Yes, would like to get a SATA 3.0 SSD

Probably the OCZ vertex series I have heard a lot of good things about them and they have a good price to performance ratio.

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 purchase a new PC every 12-18 months.
