Win an Intel 520 Series SSD! - Page 47  

post #461 of 1974
1. Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Yes - I have a OCZ Core series V2 30GB SSD. I am pricing SSD's ATM and comparing specs vs the $$'s needed to purchase.

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

Patriot and OCZ are the two I'm currently considering. The OCZ is considered due to my experience with this drive and the Patriot's for what I've heard from others that have one.

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)?
Since I'm always buying parts for my setup I eventually wind up with a new one over time as the parts accumilate and are rotated out.

4. 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?
I own a 64 GB Crucial C300.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
I plan on buying either a crucial or an Intel. for the better prices and performance.

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 usually every 12-18 months, but there's always time to upgrade minor things if it's the right price.

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
EDIT: Forgot to put i'm not Canadian, but here's the answer anyways haha.125+(45/3)-13 = 127

Best of luck to everyone!

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

Yes I do have one. I was not thinking of getting a new one for a while since all SATA 6Gb/s SSD's are more than fast enough IMO. If you are giving away one that is faster than the one I have currently my side panel is always open for more speed! tongue.gif

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

I am not but if I was I would think about getting an Intel, Crucial, or Samsung because they are the most reliable and in Intel's case, some of the fastest drives available. Since all SSD's are very VERY fast, especially since I mostly use my computer for gaming, reliability is number one on my list of importance. I dont want my $150-550 going down the drain because I bought a Sandforce drive and it failed (no offence to OCZ, Corsair, etc, but they just are not as reliable as Intel, Crucial, and Samsung 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)?

I don't really buy a new computer, I just switch out parts when I notice a certain part of my computer holding everything else back. Right now everything is running very well, but I may look into Ivy Bridge when it comes out. Either that or I will wait for the next generation of Intel CPU's in another year and get a whole new computer then when mine starts showing its age a little more! smile.gif

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

I am American, but it would be 127 if you follow the order of operations correctly (solve it scientifically, however you would like to describe it).

In the contest rules it says we only need to answer 3 of the questions, but then later down it says that we need to answer "all of the following" which are the four questions seen here. Not sure if that is a typo, but I answered all of them to be sure I am in it to win it! biggrin.gif

Good luck to all the judges who have to go through every post in this thread of course. smile.gif I know I would not want to lol.

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

I do not own an SSD, I also do not plan on purchasing one in the near future either.

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

I would definitely look into Crucial, OCZ, and Intel, specifically Crucial for their well known reputation with the M4 series SSD's. OCZ has really good value I hear but the Sandforce controller isn't very good apparently. Intel seems reputable with good performance and good pricing, quality products in other categories 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)?

Hard to answer, but I probably won't buy/build a new rig for another 3-4 years until I really have to upgrade and have some money. I woulds say 2-3 years/3+ years.

Crucial, Reliability

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)?
12-18 months

1) Nope, once I'm able to get a little extra money I would

2) Crucial, Samsun, Intel and Plextor I look at price to performance plus reliability.

3) I upgrade different parts every 6 months or so.

Yes, but looking for a larger capacity than 64g.

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

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 12-18 months

I own a Adata 120 gig SSD Sata III

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
I will be buying another SSD the performance is amazing. I will likely be buying the highest rated brand at the time for performance. Reliability and brand will be secondary but important in my decision process.

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 depends on how quickly the market moves and improves performance. Anywhere from 2 to 4 years typically. Prefer upgrading when large performance increases have been made. I do incremental upgrades throughout the life of my computer.

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
I am a American resident but the answer to the question as written is 127. The reason it appears confusing is as mentioned previously you would start with the 45 divided by 3 = 15 insert it (125 plus 15 minus 13) and answer is 127.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
I currently own a 50GB Vertex 2 and a Crucial M4 128GB. I plan on replacing the Vertex 2 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.)?
Price/performance is what I look for the most and I plan on replacing my Vertex 2 with whatever dethrones the M4 in 4k-32k reads.

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 replace parts as needed. I mainly base it on gaming performance. If my CPU can handle my video cards anymore, I will replace it. I usually replace my Video card every 12-18 months.

Yes i do, and yes i do.
2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Intel would probably be my first pick, followed by Corsair. Trust both brands, like the performance for dollar that they both have.
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)?
Completely new PC every 2 years or so. Throw some new parts in my rig every few months
