Win an Intel 520 Series SSD! - Page 97  

post #961 of 1974
1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
Yes - I own a Crucial m4 128GB. Yes, I am planning on purchasing a fast 64GB boot drive next upgrade cycle, thus allowing me to use the 128GB one for games.
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 for 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)?
12 month or less
4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?

I am Canadian, but am a legal resident of the US. Which means I do not need to get the question correct to win, so in honour of my American brethren, I will give my best illogical explaination for my incorrect answer and everybody will just have to deal with it!

125+45 / 3-13
170 / -10
-17

as you can now see my flawless logic, I thank you all for looking.

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future? I do not have an SSD , I doubt that I will be able to purchase an SSD as they are very expensive :/

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)? Kingston Hyper X , fast , I think pretty reliable , for me it costs a lot , but I guess price is ok.

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)? When I have enough money that I won't use for anything else , guess 5 years.

4) (For Canadian Residents) What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13? Not Canadian , but 125 + [ 45 / 3 ] - 13 = 112 + 15 = 127

1) I have been building with them recently. While I do not use one in my personal computer I currently own a few for use in building. I am interested in a reliable performer to use in a new signature rig in the next 6 months.

2) Last year crucial was looking good for price/performance. Recently intel 520s are looking like the most reliable and good performers and kingston is dropping prices on drives so the price may end up being the deciding factor between the three. For a scratch disk I have been looking at OCZ revo drives. PCI drives for speed as a scratch disk is something I'd be very interested in if the prices were a bit lower.

3) Every 12 months or less. I am building virtually every week.

4) 127

No & Yes very soon. 1 for sure maybe more after.

Intel since it's the only one I pretty much know of.
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)?

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

No, not at the moment. I want to buy 1 as soon as possible but the $1 gb mark is still a bit high for me. Below $1 is feasible.

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

Intel, Crucial. I'm looking for more reliability and pricing. I'm okay with the SSD not being the fastest of the bunch but atleast it's a lot faster than a HDD. I just don't want to deal with the head aches of my system keep going down because of my SSD.

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 purchase I just upgrade my system probably every 3 years or so.
Peace

1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
I have a small one currently. I have looking to purchase a second for my laptop.

2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Crucial: Price + Reliability
Intel: Reliability, I would rather an Intel if I had the money.

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 never purchase a new full system. I upgrade continuously every 6 months. (One - Two parts every six months, full PC rotation every 18-24)
