1. Do you currently own an SSD and are you planning on purchasing one in the near future? If so, which brands are you considering (Intel, OCZ, Crucial, Kingston, Patriot Memory, Samsung, or other)?

I own a Corsair Force 3 60GB.

2. What is the most important consideration you make when you purchase an SSD (price, performance, brand, other)?

Performance before price, price before controller type, I don't really care about the brand as long as it has solid support.

3. How often do you purchase a new PC (less than a 1 year, 1-2 years, 2-3 years, over 3 years)?

1-2 years. I upgrade overtime so it's hard to say how often for my Desktop PC, I do however buy a new laptop every year or 2.

4. Do you prefer to build your own PC or buy a branded system (Build your own or Buy a branded system)?

Build my own, DIY any day any time tongue.gif

5. How important do you feel an SSD is to system performance? (extremely important, pretty important, Not very important, no impact on performance)


Extremely important, I just love the blazing speed of every single thing you can imagine.
SSDs were the piece of hardware we could have only prayed for back in 2000-2005. They really made the last "slow" part of our computers just as speedy.

6. [Canadian residents only] What is 110 plus 15 divided by 5 minus 4?

Not Canadian.
