The Intel SSD Holiday Contest - Page 16  

post #151 of 875
1. I currently do not own one and wish to purchase one in the near future. I was looking into the samsung and intel series of ssds, and of course if i do win this my option will be pretty clear to grab another intel ssd to raid them.

2. What I look into when picking the ssd I would want to purchase is reliability, performance, and price. Brand preferences only vary depending on warranties offered on the product.

1. Yes, I own a Samsung 830 128 GB, and it was the best upgrade I've ever made to a computer.

2. Price is important, but I think in the long run reliability is most important.

1) Unfortunately, I don't own one. I will definitely get one in the near future only if the price to space ratio is right. Or it would be better if the space is huge but the price dirt cheap. I would consider Samsung, OCZ, Kingston and Intel.

2) As I said, it's the price to space ratio.

Yes. I currently own 10. Probably will not buy another unless one of my current one's bite the dust.

I want to get a ssd in the future, but its behind in priority compared to the aesthetic parts of my computer i have planned. Was looking into Intel, Samsung or Crucial to match closer to what I want. I want to try out SRT.

Price/GB and reliability. reliability sets the minimum guidelines and cuts out certain contenders. price/gb then dictates which has good overall value. in the end, I'll put aesthetics on the line.

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)?

Yes i do. I own one Intel 330 Series 120GB for my OS and a few select programs. I do plan on purchasing another one when the funds are there and allow me to purchase a second one.

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

Price and performance as a tie. Why? Because if the performance is great and the price is super high i won't be buying. I wait for things to be on sale so i can get performance for a good price.
