Win an Intel 520 Series SSD! - Page 78  

post #771 of 1974
1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future? No. Planning to purchase when upgrading other parts of my rig.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)? Intel Crucial Samsung Heard many good things about them all would do more research.

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)? Close to 2-3 years.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
At the moment, I'm using a super old HDD since the prices jacked up from the floods. I'll probably get a SSD after I upgrade my HDD first.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Either the Crucial M4 series or Intel depending on prices/sales.

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 purchase individual parts when they go really cheap. I don't really do one massive makeover every 2 years like some people. Upgrading individual parts as they drop in price is what I do.

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
125 + 45/3 - 1.
Right, elementary school math...lets see here...BEDMAS
So 127

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Yes and Yes. I love my Corsair Force 3, but want more than 60GB.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
I actually want an mSATA for my laptop. I am looking at the Intel 80GB or possibly a Runcore. I want speed and reliability which means price is going to be up there.

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)?
12-18 months or so.

1. yes I have a Crucial 300.

2. I would look at all brands and see what the data says about each customer and them make my choice. Reliablity would be formost for the facet if you lose your data it dosn't matter how fast it is.

3. I dont go buy years, I go by when the programs start to suffer from out dated hardware, and that is about 2-3 years per comp.

4.

Yes, an Intel 320 Series 120GB. I am planning to purchase another for a new build in the next 2-3 months, and have been considering one to upgrade my laptop.

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 worry so much about price as reliability and performance, and have been very happy with my Intel in these categories, so I don't see any reason to switch brands.

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 12 months or less.

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
I'm not Canadian, but since I'm just strange, I'll write this one as:

x=(125+(45/(3-13))
x=(125+(45/-10)
x=125+(-4.5)
x=121.5

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

I currently have one in my laptop and in my desktop. I will buy more as they become standard and the prices lower to something more reasonable.

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

When I buy my next SSD it will probably be a kingston one since I have had a great customer service experience from them and the price per gigabyte is better than many other companies.

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 exactly purchase a new PC ever; I just upgrade a different part every few months XD

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

I'm not Canadian but 127.
