All right, here it is:
1. Which brand SSD are you considering for your next upgrade? Intel, OCZ, Crucial, Kingston, Patriot Memory, Samsung, or other?
I've recently bought my first SSD... Haven't received it yet... Bought a Kingston V100 series because it was the cheapest with at least 64Gb.
2. What do you look for when selecting an SSD? Price, Performance, Brand - or a combination of these elements?
It depends... For my last build, an HTPC, reliability isn't a factor since everything is streamed from a server, and nothing else than OS and application is stored on it. Reason for going with an SSD? Performance of course, and importantly in an HTPC, quiet and cool!
So I love SSD for their quietness, and because they generate much less heat in a small build. But of course, the major factor is price, since reliability is not something I'm looking for at these prices...
If we forget the price, my main concern would be reliability, and in second, performance... Brand is not a factor to me, as long as the reviews on a particular product are good!
