Win an Intel 520 Series SSD! - Page 94  

post #931 of 1974
1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?

No I do not currently own a ssd I use a western digital caviar black. I would like to purchase a ssd in the future because I would like to see reduced loadtimes in OS tasks and loading while gaming but the prices are currently two high for me to make that choice.


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

If I were to purchase a SSD I would go with Corsair/OCZ. I already own a corsair power supply and it is reliable and they are a well known company so I would expect it to last and them to honor their warranty

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 a new pc over 3 years but I do replace the graphics card every 2 years

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

I am from Toronto, ON. I got 43.66666667 but you weren't really clear if we are solving it as is or using bedmas which would be 127 flat

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future? Two an Intel X25 G2 and a Crucial C300, both are a little over a year and half old, so I wouldn't mind grabbing a larger one if the prices drop some more.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)? I love both my current drives but I have heard great things about OCZ as well. Right now I think Intel, Crucial and 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)? I upgrade constantly, but to fit in here I bet I have a brand new comp every 18-24 months but components are constantly being updated.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Yes. Probably withing the next 6 months. I have been finding that 60GB is just barely enough for a boot drive. I would like a little more room

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
I've been looking at crucial because of how fast they are or Intel because they are reliable

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 my PC constantly, but I replace the core components (motherboard, CPU, RAM) about every 3-4 years
post #934 of 1974
I definitely want in on this!!

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
- No, I do not currently own a SSD. I was planning on purchasing one in the near future, yes.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
- I was considering the Kingston SSDNow V100 SV100S2N/256GZ 2.5" 256GB SATA II, because of its size and performance rating. Not that I haven't been looking into Intel's SSDs either.

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 not to purchase many PCs, but I do continually upgrade my current one to be the best that it can be.

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
- Like most others that have been posting to this question, I am not Canadian, but here are my answers:
- If you meant (125+45)/3-13, it would equal 43 2/3.
- If you meant 125+(45/3)-13, it would equal 127.
- If you meant (125+45)/(3-13), it would equal -17.

1. Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Yes I own a Samsung 830 128gb SSD and do not have any immediate plans to buy another right now

2. If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
i would probably go with another Samsung because its what I already own. Maybe the Crucial M4 because it has a stellar reputation

3. How often do you purchase a new PC (every 12months or less, every 12-18 months, 18-24 months, 2-3 years, over 3 years)?
Every 18-24 months is probably the most fitting answer. I am always looking to upgrade components though

4. What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
I am American but its 127

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

Yes, I own a 120GB Corsair Force 3. I will definitely be buying more SSDs in the future when they offer greater storage at a better price.

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

I stand by Corsair's products lately, but I'd consider an OCZ Vertex or an Intel SSD as my next choices.

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)?

My previous PC was built in January 2008. I upgraded it a few times over the past 4 years, including selling my E8400 for $100 and getting a Q6600 for $100, a 0 cost upgrade. I went from an 8800GTS to an HD4870 to a 4870X2 to a GTX570. Just a few months ago I won a 2500k so I went ahead and bought other hardware for my current build.

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

Since many people that speak to me on VOIP think I sound Canadian I'm answering this, and hopefully my answer is unique from the others that answer this question.

520.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future? i do not currently own one, but i am planning on getting one

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)? i am looking at OCZ and Samsung, the reason those to companies is they are pretty much the most popular ones and they have good performance and they also tend to be lower priced

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 18-24months

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Yes, several. I do plan on purchasing more.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
OCZ, Kingston, Crucial. Price/performance and reliability is what I consider. Honestly I haven't bought an intel SSD due to high pricing.

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 have multiple PCs between work/home and I do about 6 or more new builds per year, so definitely 12 months or less.

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
NA, I'm a US resident

1. No, I would love to but cant afford one. I would like to purchase one by next year or so.
2. Ocz, Intel, crucial. Price and performance are big, as well as reliability and customer service in case something goes wrong.
3. Generally about 2-3 years but lately money is tight. My current PC is 4 years old

4. N/a

I'm in thanks!
