Win an Intel 520 Series SSD! - Page 60  

post #591 of 1974
1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future? No, Definitely getting one in the future just saving up money. Being a Medical school student is tough

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)? Intel, OCZ, and Crucial seem to be the best reviewed from what i have read.

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 PC almost ever year to two years

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13? not Canadian but the answer is 127

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

       -I own two X25-V 40gb drives. I'd like to upgrade but I think I will end up just raiding them when I get around to reinstalling Windows. They are just too small to dual boot like I have been using them for.

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

       -I have heard good things about Intel being reliable But will probably go with the best price point from a well know manufacture, Intel, Corsair, OCZ


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)?

       -It's an ever evolving process. But I am at a point where I am content and only upgrade if needed and and  buy hardware that has long


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

       - Form the US.

When I do decide to purchase a SSD I will most likely decide between either Intel, Samsung, or Crucial because of the reliability and performance all of these brands offer.

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

I do not currently own an SSD. I will be purchasing at least one by summer as projects start coming together.


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

Intel first, because they're still the most reliable SSDs according to available literature. OCZ seems to be making good strides here as well. I would use SSDs as boot drives and storage drives for media computers that don't need huge onboard storage. Speed is good. Reliability is good. Silence is awesome.


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. I upgrade in pieacemeal as technology provides enough of an incentive. Currently, the speed at which Ivy Bridge and Raspberry Pi develop will determine my upgrade schedule.


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

Totally not Canadian. *trollface.jpg*

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future? I would love to, but with the prices where they are, that isn't feasible.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)? From my limited research, Intel and Crucial seem to be the best performance and price wise.

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 whole new PC? Rarely. Upgrade bits and pieces? Probably once or twice a year, depending on the part.
