Win an Intel 520 Series SSD! - Page 58  

post #571 of 1974
Please please please please please please, higher power, let me win this...

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

I do, yes. I would like to acquire more, but I cannot possibly afford any now, and not only because of their prices.

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

Intel and OCZ. Intel has a very good reputation with SSDs, and as I've had my OCZ drive for nearly two years now with no faults, I'm willing to go with them again.

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 build a new setup every time a new Intel processor or nVidia GPU architecture was released, but that won't be happening any more, given my financial situation. I'd say that meant about once every 18 months.

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

Not Canadian, BUT MATH IS FUN.

127.

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

Do not currently own an SSD. Planning on getting some when they get cheaper.

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

Branding will only get you so far. I will look at reviews before I purchase to look for best reliability and performance for a decent price.

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)?

About every 3 years I will do a major upgrade.

1) Yes, a 64GB M4 in a secondary rig.

2) Crucial, Samsung, Intel - all provide a track record of reliability.

3) 2-3 years
post #574 of 1974
1) Yes, yes.

2) Intel, Crucial. Looking for reliability and performance.

3) 18-24 months.

4) lol

Thank you.

i am considering crucial and intel, mostly because of excellent reputation in terms of both reliability and performance.
