The Intel SSD Holiday Contest  

post #1 of 875
Thread Starter 


Intel really, really likes giving out solid state drives - and to get us through the end of the year, you've got yet another chance to win one! thumb.gif

Up for grabs this time are Intel's 520 Series SSDs, 3 120gb drives in total, for 3 lucky winners to be drawn shortly after the contest ends on December 31st, 2012.

You're probably familiar with the entry process by now; all you need to do is post your answer to the following two questions in this thread:
Quote:
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)?

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


Full terms and conditions can be found here (and for our international friends, you'll note any restrictions on residency have been removed - if it is legal for you to participate in a contest like this where you live, you can!) :

I currently own a Crucial M4 256GB SSD and a Kingston HyperX 3k 120GB. I plan on purchasing another 256GB SSD, either Crucial or Plextor.


2. What is the most important consideration you make when you purchase an SSD

1. Do you currently own an SSD and are you planning on purchasing one in the near

Memory, Samsung, or other)?

I own an OCZ Vertex 2 60GB. Getting long in the tooth now so I'll be upgrading that some time in the next 3 months. As far as brands go; I'm not really "in love" with any brand; I'll go with what has good performance to price ratio. Most likely OCZ Vetex 4 or Samsung 840.

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

Price to performance ratio and reliability.

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 currently have a OCZ Agility 4 256GB for my boot drive and I'm considering grabbing a few more as prices go down. I'm looking at OCZ, Intel, Samsung and Patriot Memory in that order.

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

Price>Performance>Brand is the order of things I considered before buying my Agility and I'll probably follow the same formula again.

1. Currently own two SSD by Samsung. I would consider Intel, Samsung, Plextor If I was purchasing. I'm not expecting to purchase any more this month unless a client ask for one.
2. Performance is first consideration then Price.
