No, I don't own an SSD however am planning to get one in the near future to boost my PC's performance I am only looking at Intel 520 Series at the moment as in my opinion they are the best on the market.

Price and Performance, Intel 520 Series satisfies both of these.

I currently do not own an SSD, and I plan on trading in my hard drives for one. I am considering OCZ, Intel, Patriot, and Kingston for their long time reliability and personal experience with their products.

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

Price and performance are at the utmost on my list, but reliability and the ability to be used in rigs all the way through it's product life is far more important. I would rather spend a little more for a slightly slower SSD to know that I can use it to its fullest for the longest time.

No I do not currently own one. In the process of building a new rig though. Looking at Intel's and Samsung's they seem to have the best ratings.


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

I look at price, as well as performance.
