Yes, I currently have a Kingston SSDNow V+ 100 in my home gaming rig and an OCZ Vertex 2 in my aging personal laptop.
Installing these SSD drives improved the performance of both machines, but made a dramatic difference in my five year old laptop - which now feels fast enough to keep for another year or two.
2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
I am not currently planning to purchase another SSD drive but, if I was, I would try to carefully balance price against performance and wait for a really good deal.
I would dearly love to own an Intel SSD because of their hard-earned reputation for quality, but they are so expensive that I would probably never buy one for myself.
3) How often do you purchase a new PC (every 12 months or less, every 12-18 months, 18-24 months, 2-3 years, over 3 years)?
I generally build a new computer every three to four years.
I upgrade components more frequently, as finances permit.
4) [Canadian residents] What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
I am a resident of the United States of America, so I don't think this applies to me.
