Win an Intel 520 Series SSD! - Page 48  

post #471 of 1974
1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future? No. I have all intentions on getting one in the future, but money is my biggest issue. I had other things that I wanted to upgrade first.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)? Intel or Crucial. Performance, Price, and 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)? My computer is an ever evolving machine, but its probably around 12-18 months. With my current build (pending 3770k and a Z77 Board) will hopefully hold me off for a while.

Do you currently own an SSD?
I don’t own an SSD and I don’t plan to in the future because of the ridiculous prices. I am a beginner system builder and I grew to love regular 5400RPM and 7200RPM drives. For me it really is price over performance and I plan to stick to HDD. I absolutely do not mind waiting longer than a minute to boot my system and applications. There are absolutely no benefits to me being able to open applications in an SSD at a faster rate than my beloved HDDs.

If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
I don’t plan to purchase an SSD in the future. It has not convinced me enough to even try. I’d rather spend the money to buy more HDDs. In addition, the events in Thailand has showed me how important regular HDDs are to me and I should have not taken them for granted when I used to purchase them for $50 apiece. It sheds me to tears seeing them on the forums now because they used to be my favorite and maybe most sellers just wants to get rid of them because they can make a profit.

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 use my computer building skills to help family members and also at my college’s technology services. Over here are Gustavus, we purchase computers on a yearly basis because some computers become too slow to log into accounts after a year or two. However, our management teams also have not once considered putting our budget to acquire SSDs into our campus computers. Our favorites are the WD Cavier Blue 320 GB HDD because their performances work just fine.

What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
Seriously? Do canadian schools even teach PERMDAS? The answer should be 127 if you use PERMDAS mathematically.

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

Yes, I do. If prices go down a little bit more, I would get one for my laptop also.

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

Crucial, Intel, OCZ, mainly price and 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)?

Upgrade something about every 6 months.

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

Yes, I own a SSD. I plan on purchasing more 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.)?

Every 2-3+ years, I build a new computer on my own.

No I don't own a SSD, but I was planning on buying one once prices became feasible.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
I was considering either Intel, or Crucial SSDs because of the performance to price value they offer with a bit of longevity.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future? No and yes

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?well, after reading Sean's guide, Crucial and Samsung are my top choices.

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 3 years. This HP is actually doing pretty well

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13? I'm not Canadian but the answer would be...lets see, this would simplify to 125 + (45 / 3) - 13 b/c of order of operations. After that, it would be 125+15-13 which would simply translate to 127.

How many people forgot order of operations? Here, use this.

Remember spaces and this has order of operations built in. I used this to check, not to answer.

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 currently. Currently funds do not include an SSD but have looked into it. smile.gif

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

Most importantly is reliability and performance at the right price is most important to me. Paying a bit more to have a reliable product far outweighs getting a cheap SSD that will fail.

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 every year some part of my computer. CPU/Mobo - GPU - Monitor - so it's rotating and evolving forward. biggrin.gif

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

Do not live in Canada but the answer is 43.6 tongue.gif

Thank you kindly for giving OCN members another chance to win SSD's. thumb.gif
