Win an Intel 520 Series SSD! - Page 66  

post #651 of 1974
1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?

Yes, an Intel X25-M 160GB G2. Possibly looking to get one for my macbook.

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

Corsair, Intel, Crucial. Really just looking for a reliable brand that has a good GB/$ ratio and is one of the newer drives. Any SSD will boost the speed of my macbook, and a difference of a couple MB/s read/write won't make that much of a difference in the long run.

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 12 months or so.

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

I have a Crucial C300 64GB and I recently bought a refurbished Patriot 32GB. I haven't tried the Patriot one out yet though. I want to either get another C300 for raid or try the M4. It all depends on money.

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

If I do get a new one, it'll either be Crucial or Intel. I haven't had any problems so far with my Crucial and i've always wanted to try Intel. I had bad luck with OCZ so I probably won't go that route 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 try to upgrade whenever I find a good deal. I usually by a few new components a year, if anything is worth the upgrade.

4) (For Canadian Residents) 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?

Yes I do. I don't know when the next time I will purchase one will be. I certain love the SSD I have now!

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

I'd be interested in another C300 or an M4. I have heard good things about the Intel offerings, but have had no personal experience with them.

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 2-3 years.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Yes I do. If the price is right I would pick up additional SSD's.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
The brands at the top of my list are Crucial and Intel due to reliability 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 usually purchase/build a new PC about every 3 years with the previous build being passed to the wife.

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
In the states the answer is 127. Do they do math differently up north?

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
I own a SSD, but i feel like its dying with the bluescreens. So im looking to replace it.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Brands: OCZ and Intel. Looking at 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)?
New PC? Me? I upgrade parts, not rebuild. Hard drives are something i almost never replace unless they go bad.

Count me in!


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

I have two OCZ 60GBs in a raid 0 config. Not planning on buying a new one, currently, but I would love to compare an Intel vs the OCZ setup. biggrin.gif

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

Again, not planning on it, but the best value on the price/performance curve is my biggest consideration.

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 generally upgrade components on my PC every 2-3 years.

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

I'm not Canadian. ("Not that there's anything wrong with that...." - Seinfeld) thumb.gif

I do not own one unfortunately. But eventually, i hope to change that!

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

Over 3 years...
