1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
I own a Corsair ForceGT 180GB (4months old) and a Kingston Hyperex 120GB (2 months old). Same Sandforce controller. No issues

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Intel - Performance and Reliability. And to check performance against the Corsair/Kingston.

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'm afraid I fall into the 12 months or less group. smile.gif

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future? I own one now and have been happy with it. I would love to try Intel's offering as mine is a few generations old now.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)? I haven't looked into SSDs lately. I have nothing against Intel as a brand, though, and have heard good things about their drives.

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)? Usually every 6 months or less but this last one has lasted me quite a while.

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13? I'm not Canadian but if I were I'd assume the answer is moose or hockey.



Thanks for doing this!

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Planning to? No. Wishing? Oh yes. wubsmiley.gif
2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, Which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Intel, Crucial, Samsung, and OCZ. Reliability, performance, and in OCZ's case, interesting form factors. (REVO and IBIS)
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. If I had my way it would be far more often.
4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
I am not Canadian, However, I submit the answer to be 127, provided that the imperial base ten number system is in effect, and the algebraic order of operations is observed.

I think you acidentely a question: What would you do with your intel 520 series if you won?
I would remove the optical drive in my Macbook Pro and put it in as a boot drive for Lion and Windows 7, using the stock drive for extra storage space.

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

- I own an Intel x25-m 80GB ssd, I am amazing at the performance, even for a 2nd gen ssd! I am planning on buying another for my laptop in the next year.

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

- My first brand that I am considering is Intel, as their performance and reliability are superb, although the price is higher, for reliability of my data, it is worth it. My second choice is 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)?

I upgrade my PC every two years, with one significant upgrade each year.

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

- Not canadian, but the answer is 127. Do the division property first, then do the addition/subtraction properties.


5) What would you do with your intel 520 series if you won?

- I would put it in my laptop, so I would have blazing speeds everywhere I go, take out the cd tray and put a hdd in there for more space.

1. Yes, I do, an OCZ Vertex 3. No, I'm not planning on buying another soon.

2. N/A. If one, it would be Intel, Crucial, or OCZ for performance and reliability.

3. About every 3 or more years.

4. I don't live in Canada, but that question has multiple answers tongue.gif. Be specific!
