Win an Intel 520 Series SSD! - Page 62  

post #611 of 1974
1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?

Don't currently own one. Considering getting one relatively soon.

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

Crucial, OCZ, Intel. Looking for combo of price, performance, 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)?

Over 3 years, on average.

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

Not Canadian, however 43.67.

Thanks

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

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
I don't care about brand. If I must list brands for the purpose of this they would be (in no particular order) Kingston, OCZ, Patriot, Intel, Crucial. The main reason for me wanting an SSD is increased performance (loading times of programs and Windows). Price and reliability are important considerations as well. I would analyze these metrics on a case by case basis, not by brand.

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.

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
I'm not in Canada, but if you consider the order of operations the answer is 127. If not, then the answer is 43 2/3.

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

No. I've been thinking about it,but the price/drive size is still a little high.


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

If I was to purchase one I'd go with an Intel ssd because they offer good warranties.


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 tend to upgrade my system piece by piece,a complete parts change out can take a couple of years.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Yes. I currently own an ssd. I probably won't purchase another one until I build a new computer, although the ability to put my entire games library on flash is tempting.
2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
When I purchase SSDs, I usually look at Samsung, Crucial, and more recently Corsair. The reason being that they meet the sweet spot of performance/price. Sandforce are not worth the time and worry and RMAs, and Intel, while renowned for unmatched performance and reliability, is difficult to justify on my budget (although I spent a lot of time looking for a good deal on one when I purchased my last drive).
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 would say every 2-3 years. Although as time/money allows and my computer usage habits dictate, perhaps as often as once a year.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Yup, Intel X-25M G2 80gb. I'm planning on purchasing one for games I play the most. I notice a big difference in load times.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Most likely Crucial, Intel or OCZ , it mostly depends on value. I feel that the cheapest SSD is still faster than most hard disk drives, so I'm open for most anything.

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, I think my overclocked i7 920 should be good for a few more years. I built it in 2009.
