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 2 SSD's. First is a Samsung 256gb 830 series. The second is an OCZ Vertex 2 Turbo.

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

Price and performance. I want the speed and will do best to pay the least possible. Including scouring online deals to have local computer store to price match. I would buy more if they were cheaper.


Thank you again OCN for these opportunities to receive these awesome contest. Good luck to the rest of the contestants.

- Yes, a Samsung 830 128GB.. I don't feel the immediate need to purchase a new SSD, but will consider it if something of interest comes along. And if so, it would most likely be either Samsung or Intel because of reliability.

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

- Reliability > performance > price > brand. In that order.

No I do not currently own an SSD but would like to buy one soon.

The most important thing would have to be 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)?


Yes, I own a 128GB M4. I don't have any plans to buy one any time soon simply because I don't have any money. If I did, I would probably go with Intel, Crucial, Kingston, Samsung, or SanDisk.

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


The most important thing is reliability. While I backup all of my personal data, I still can't afford to have my storage devices failing all the time. Second to reliability is performance. People always say that with SSD's there's no reason to be picky about speeds because you won't notice a difference, but this is OCN, "good enough" isn't good enough for us! Of course, price plays a part too, but I generally don't mind paying a premium for the better part. wink.gif

Got a Plextor M3 Pro 128GB ~2 months ago, best non gaming upgrade I've made to my PC, or any PC for that matter. I'm considering getting one for my old man... Samsung, Intel, Plextor and Crucial would be my top choices.

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

Price Performance ratio, although I wouldn't mind spending an extra dollar or two for a drive considered to be more reliable than the top price performance drive at the time.

1. I currently have an OCZ Vertex 3 120GB drive. I would like to buy another SSD in the near future, most likely an Intel or Samsung.

2. Reliability is my main priority, with speed coming second.

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 two SSD's, both are OCZ Vertex 2 (60gb + 120gb). I want to swap out both for Intel, after seeing my friend use the 520 series, I can't do anything but to bow down to both the performance and reliability! smile.gif

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

First of all performance and reliability. My current ones are unstable at times, and the performance also really downgrades after using the same Windows for 6months+.
Brand is also a little important, and I usually only pick good brands when building computers, and Intel has been with me for many years now, and for many years to come.


Thank you for the opportunity to win, and best of luck to all! smile.gif

1. I currently own 2 ssd's. The one I'm currently using a Plextor M3 128G and a spare Kingston V-Drive. I am considering a Samsung 840 128G for a laptop that I'm repairing that could use a nice upgrade.

2. Speed, brand and then price....
