Win an Intel 520 Series SSD! - Page 42  

post #411 of 1974
1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?

No. Hope so when the prices drop a little more to a more affordable price for myself

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

I believe Intel, Crucial, and OCZ are the top 3 manufacturers right now. All have reviewed to perform very well

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)?

Used to be fairly often id upgrade or build a new PC, but i havent built a new one since end of 2007. A little upgrade here and there for HD's or heatsink... but thats about it.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?I currently own an OCZ Agility 3 90gb SSD. I plan on buying 2 more in the future, possibly the near future if prices continue to drop.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)? For my next 2 SSDs I plan on buying the most reliable SSDs for the money, right now that is Intel, but in the future it may not be. I will be running them Raid 0 or Raid 5, so reliability is the most important with price at a close second.

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 typically purchase a new computer every 12-18 months, but within those 12-18 months I will upgrade my computer once or twice.

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

No I am waiting for prices to come down or my budget to go up.

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

Intel, OCZ, or Crucial.
They seem to be the best for the price in terms of reliability and performance.

3. How often do you purchase a new PC (every 12months or less, every 12-18 months, 18-24 months, 2-3 years, over 3 years)?

Probably 2-3 years, still on my first one I actually own and that has been for less than a year.

4. What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?

115.46, I am not Canadian but figured I might as well.

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

No, I am considering one when I get a laptop.


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

Intel and Samsung because they have the reputation for being the most reliable.


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)?

Its sporadic, this one I've had for about 3 years.


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

125 + 45 / 3 - 13 = 127

I own one Crucial M4 128gb ssd. I am planning on purchasing more in the future.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Crucial, Samsung, Intel, OCZ. It's a mixture of price, performance, reliability and size. I will not pay more than $1.5/GB regardless of performance, reliability etc.

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)?
Over three years. I upgrade parts now and then. I also build pc's for friends and family. Build about 3-5 pc's a year but not for myself.

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

 

A: Yes I currently own a Corsair Force GT 120GB.  I'll be building an HTPC soon and was going to use an SSD as a boot drive.

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

 

A: I usually use Corsair SSDs but I'm open to other brands.  I like my SSDs to be reliable and fast and I'm willing to pay a bit more for it.

 

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 upgrade major components every two years.

 

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

 

A: I'm not usually Canadian, but when I am, Tim Horton's or round bacon.

Intel for performance, reliability, and brand. OCZ for price and performance. Corsair for performance

Some skill testing question eh? Obviously wasn't written by a Canadian. I can just read the posts before me! 127 if you read it as 125 + (45/3) - 13

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
I do not own one right now, I am trying to save up enough money to be able to afford one once Windows 8 is released however I don't see myself being able to do that.

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 eye balling OCZ just because they are so affordable, I look at the Intel SSD's and I see they have the best performance but also the priciest.

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 slowly upgrade parts, so over the course of two and a half years I have an entirely new computer except the hard drives.
