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 own a Crucial M4 and am considering an SSD for my HTPC. The main brands I am considering are Intel, Crucial and Samsung.

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

It is 100% price for me, I assume that they are all similar in real world speeds and reliability, so try to save the pennies.

Im planning to buy my first SSD this christmas and can't decide between a Sandisk 64gb sata3 or Intel SSD 330 60GB. The sandisk is about $3 cheaper and is 4gb larger in capacity.



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

I will consider price and performance first before brands because SSD's are kinda still new and I dont know any brand that can guarantee a 5-year or more lifespan

Price, real world performance is almost the same between all SSD's.

Currently I do not own one but have been planning on getting one. I have been considering the Intel 520 Series as well as the Samsung 840 Series SSD's.

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

Make, model, and speed would be my 3 deciding factors when purchasing SSD or any part for that matter!

I own a C300 and an M4. I'm considering Crucial, Intel, and Samsung for my next SSD purchase.

2. What is the most important consideration you make when you purchase an SSD
(price, performance, brand, other)?
Mostly price, but performance and brand also play a role. I usually pick the cheapest out of the brands I like (Intel, Crucial, and Samsung).

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

Yes and yes. I'm considering OCZ, Crucial, and Samsung primarily. Considering other brands if they're cheaper since this will be for my laptop, not super important.

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

Stability/reliability (which ties in to brand a bit) primarily, then price. To me as long as the drives are SATA III the performance difference isn't that significant.
