Patriot or OCZ. I currently own a OCZ vertex 3 max iops and love it and have yet to have any issues. Patriot wildfire seems to be a good performer as well. I tend to look at the best performers and Then weigh them against their price.

Motherboard changes happen every 2-3 years probably for me..parts may come and go during that time.

Yes, of course!!!thumb.gif

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
M4, since they have sequential read speed up to 500MB/s, especially for the 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)?
I don't but make small upgrades every year or so . and major upgrade every 5 years. (In my experience ssd would be a small upgrade with a major change)devil.gif

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
If i live in the US can i still answer the question

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, price/performance ratio and reliability, probably a M4.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future? I have a Crucial C300 that is becoming dated compared to new tech and one failed on me already that I had to RMA. I would much rather have an Intel.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)? Intel and Samsung are the two I have been looking at. Price isn't really an issue because with price comes reliability and better performance (generally) and both of these companies have a proven track record in those two key areas.

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 like to upgrade certain components every year. One year maybe CPU/mobo and the next year GPU's and then HD's and RAM. Just depends on the performance gains I'll receive so technically I guess you could say I have a new computer every 2-3 years.

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

- Yes (Intel X25-M G2 120GB) and Yes- for my Ivy Bridge build.

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

- Intel, Crucial and Samsung. Good real world performance, but mainly for reliability. I will take reliability over performance any day.

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)?

- Every 3 years or so. Usually try for every other architecture release.

4) In America, so N/A
post #719 of 1974
1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future? Yes, however I'm running out of space and have not had an easy time with the firmware. Also had it's sister drive fail after 2 months.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)? Intel, price is higher than others, however I have had good experiences with their drivers and motherboard chip sets.

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)? Every 2-3 years, constantly upgrading components however.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future? I own two now. A Crucial M4 128GB and a OCZ Vertex Turbo 60GB. I might buy another Crucial M4 128GB in the future.

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

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)? Not a new PC per say, but new parts (CPU,Mobo), probably about once every 1-2 years.
