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)?

1.) No SSD. I plan on purchasing one within the next 3 months (hopefully). INTEL, OCZ, Samsung are all brands I would consider

2.)Dollars per quality (longevity)

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 just got one recently (64GB Crucial M4) for my first build. Do not plan on purchasing one in the near future as I don't have the cash.

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


Price/Performance, brand (reputation), controller (Sandforce, LAMD, etc), and durability.

I'm considering Corsair, Intel and Samsung.
I own an OCZ and a Crucial M4.
In my opinion the most important factor when buying an SSD is reliability. Followed by performance.
post #546 of 875
1. I am considering a SSD this winter. Intel and Samsung are the only two brands I would consider.

2. Reliability is the utmost important feature. I am not interested in any more speed unless I can be confident the media will be as stable as current HDD technology.

1. I don't own a ssd but am looking to purchase a Samsung one soon.

2. The most important considerations are real world(overclock.net data) reviews and price.

I currently have a Corsair Force 3 120GB SSD in my rig, and another SSD in my Ultrabook.

Price to performance ratio is pretty important.
post #549 of 875
1. Yes I own two 120 GB Kingston Hyper 3K and two 128 GB Samsung 830 SSDs. At the moment (after Christmas recovery) I expect to purchase a 240-256 GB SSD for my laptop.
Brands depend on reliability, price, ease of use, primarily.
Preference atm Samsung 830, Samsung 840 Pro, Plextor M5S, Kingston Hyper 3K, OCZ Vertex 4, possibly Agility 4, Vector, Pricing and reputation. though the price on the Samsung 840 is tempting for 512 GB for $350 or less. Allmost grabbed an Intel 180 GB on sale, dithered too long.

2. Price, reliability, ease of use. Samsung software is impressive(Intel is supposed to be comparable) may yet carry the day.

I do not own a ssd and do not plan on purchasing one in the future. If I did, I would look for performance.
