I don't currently own a SSD
I would consider Intel, Corsair, Mushkin

I own a 64GB Crucial M4 SSD. I have been very happy with the load speed of this drive comparing to my old HDD, but due to the size I am forced to use my HDD for everything except Win7. I would love to see how fast games would load and run on a SSD. I would love to win one of these drives then I would buy a second one to use in RAID-0. thumb.gif

(price, performance, brand, other)?

Reliability and price are what I look for in everything I buy and good sales are usually a big factor. Intel and Crucial top my list for SSD selection but Crucial happened to be cheaper when I bought one.

1) Yes, I own three (1 OCZ, 1 Patriot, 1 Mushkin) and am going to buy a new one soon for a raid0. Probably going to be Patriot.

 

2) brand, price (I'm a cheapskate when it comes to SSDs)

post #457 of 875
1. I do not currently own an SSD. I am looking into purchasing an Intel or Samsung in the near future.

2. Price > Reliability > Performance are my considerations

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

I own 3 SSDs, 2 Crucial M4s and an OCZ Vertex 2. I am planning on getting one for my HTPC, I was looking at a Samsung 840 but I will probably just pick up what is on sale.

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

1. I don't own an SSD currently. I would most likely consider an Intel or Samsung
2. Reliability and price are probably the most important aspects to me.

I don't have any SSD currently, but if I were to purchase one, I would purchase something like the Samsung 830, because it's really amazing.


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


Price, then Performance. I don't care much for brands, as long as the performance is awesome.
