Win an Intel 520 Series SSD! - Page 41  

post #401 of 1974
1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?

Yes I own 2 Crucial 128GB C300 SSD's in Raid 0. I do plan on purchasing more since the price of SSD's have steadily gone down in the last few years as performance has increased.

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

The only brands I will consider buying are Crucial and Intel. While I value performance and price when deciding on which SSD to buy, reliability is the main deciding factor.

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 computer (main components) every 12-18 months. However I am constantly adding, changing, and upgrading other parts of my system. I also help friends and family with their computer purchases and custom builds.

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

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

Yes I do, an Intel 320 80gb. I do plan on purchasing more SSDs in the future when I do my next build.

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

From personal experience which constitutes personal, close friends and an uncle's experience with SSDs, we've come to a consenus to go for steady, solid and reliable speed which equates to Intel brand SSDs. So as bias as that sounds, I would go for Intel first. I would go for OCZ next. I've always wanted to try Mushkin's SSDs, just never got around to them yet.

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)?

Until fairly recently, I've gotten nothing but hand-me-down, used computers for as long as I could remember. The computer in my signature is the first I've ever built on my own and it won't be the last. I plan on building another one soon, so to answer the question over 3 years ... rolleyes.gif

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

I am not canadian but the answer is 127.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Nope. No, I do not plan to purchase one in the near future -- the cost per gigabyte is simply too high at the moment.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
If I were to buy an SSD, it'd be something from Crucial, Intel, or Samsung. They seem to be the most reliable and reliability is the #1 factor for me (since all SSDs are much faster than HDDs anyway).

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 used to upgrade to an entirely new PC every 2-3 years, but now I try to do substantial upgrades every year or so.

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
Math major here, so I am compelled to answer this: (125 +15 - 13) = 127.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Don't currently own one, have not seen it as a necessity yet...
I would love to buy one since I like to have cool stuff, but right now don't have the extra funds...


2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
I have been reading that Intel and Crucial are a good choice... price, performance, and definitely reliability would play a factor in my decision on which one to buy

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)?
Ive been building a new PC 4 times a year in the past few years, but will probably be slowing that habit down a bit biggrin.gif

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
I'm not Canadian... why not include a fun math question for the US residents? rolleyes.gif

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

I currently do. I'm also planning on only purchasing SSD as HDDs.

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

With my experience with Intel, their drives have withstand a lot and 2 years of actual use. Very face drive.

Other suggestions I'm interested in is OCZ, Patriot, and Corsair.

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)?

Roughly 2-3 years (sometimes more).

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

125 + 45/3 - 13 = 125 + 15 - 13 = 127.

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

I currently own a Crucial M4 and I want another SSD for a laptop In will be purchasing for university 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.)?

Crucial, Intel, I've heard good things about samsung as well and for some reason I have a soft spot for Mushkin and I've never used any of their products. Price/Performance is the most important factor as well as not being sandforce driven.

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)?

This is only my first build but I anticipate it to be at least over 2 years (or about every DDR level) becuase that is my current trend is

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

Planning to buy an OCZ Synapse Cache SSD in the next week

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

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)?
At most I'll go for an upgrade of platform/GPU (depending on which needs a full upgrade, like 1156 to 1155 or something). It's one or the either.

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
I don't like Maple Syrup. :b

P.S. I don't reside in the US, but can I get it shipped to a US-based address for further fowarding? (On the off-chance I win, of course)

Q: 1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
A:No, I don't own an SSD. I might buy one for my first build that I will do in April.
Q: 2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
A:I would buy Crucial because it has the best space to price to performance for me. I would buy from Intel but they are out of my price range. The performance is good and they are the only company that makes extreme SSDS that won't crash after the first boot[OCZ]
Q: 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)?
A: I would say over 3 years I have only one PC in my life and that is 8 years old and that is why I would do, my first build[A Gaming Rig]
Q: 4)(For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
A: I am not Canadian but, it is 127.
