Apacer AS330 Panther Giveaway

SSDs are especially important in mainstream laptops for the simply reason they are drop resistant. 

In fact, I would put this in one of my laptops given I won it. 


muh specs

The simple answer is value! The SSD wins the performance-per-dollar almost every time. Systems big, small, short, tall, black, or made out of the broken glass of whiskey bottles. They all benefit from the power of the SSD! From simply having a boot drive, to using it as a platform from which to share the photos you've taken of yourself doing wonderfully dirty things to your vintage collection of sock puppets at lightning speeds, everyone can find value!

 

Note: This was not autobiographical in anyway. Shut up.

SSDs are great as they allow users to have faster loading times to get their work done faster on their computer. Once you SSD you'll never go back. ^^

SSD's are the future, as they begin to get faster and faster and their prices get lower and lower.  I still have some old IDE drives around, and a SSD would do wonders as a replacement!

There is a significant advantage especially for laptops because an SSD will typically consume less energy. Along side this there is little to no sound involved with SSDs because of their lack of moving parts, so if a whirring hard drive bothers you then an SSD is a must.

I currently don't even have an SSD all I have is 1 ancient Seagate Barracuda drive at 5400rpm with 500GB of capacity (currently i only have 98GB of free space on it), its okay but i could really go for something a bit faster to put my operating system on. I used to have a second HDD but it was only 150GB and it crapped out a few of months ago in August, its just about as old as the drive i am using now so i'm kind of just playing the waiting game seeing how long it takes until this drive dies.

 

However on the other hand I think everyone should have an SSD because not only do they speedup your startup times and load your porn applications and games faster but they typically use less power and tend to be quieter because they have no moving parts. If you can get your hands on an SSD it would definitely be worth it.

My pc is super slow.. I I think I can fix this with a SSD because it way more fast. And I hope I can save battery with it. I think everyone should have a SSD in their pc because lots of people are complaining about a slow pc.

I want it so I can sell it on Ebay. I don't care for high performance enthusiast gaming as much as I respect computers as the science it is. I'd use the money to help pay for certifications, buying parts that I want, or maybe even "broken" towers that I can repair and resell. SSDs are not for everybody, maybe you'll want a tape drive to backup data, or a HDD for a workstation.

 

Yes I created an account just for this. I've been watching LTT for a few months now to help keep up to date with some of the latest technologies. There is roughly a 0.15% of being a winner, you better deliver.

Heck, I'd want one of these SSDs since the HDD in my Alpha had to be replaced with a slow 500GB 5400RPM HDD, along with an unbearable startup time. The thing runs incredulously, so a new SSD would be doing a student like me a huge favor. C:

I need the SSD for a build im going to do, but my money is limited so it would be nice if I would not habe to pay ~80€ for it so i can affort something like a beefier case. Everyone should have a SSD so their PC boots superfast.

I think I deserve a new SSD from you awesome guys because I need to upgrade my old Crucial RealSSD C300 60 gb I got about 5 years ago, I want to see how 540/520MB read/write feels like :P

 

Everybody should have an SSD to see and "feel" the difference from what they had before. It's like night and day when it comes to loading times, and I'm guessing especially the new SSDs featuring 500ish MB/Read/Write and not to mention the new NVME ones must be awesome compared to the early SSDs like the one I have and even more for people still using old mechanical drives.

I would love a new ssd since my current 2tb Seagate HDD is dieing (buzzings, very slow boot, took me 81 seconds to open tf2, head gets stuck a lot and my desktop takes a long time to load) 

I would also like an ssd also because my mum, dad and my brother they all use my PC and since my hdd is slow they'd want to open things quicker

I also would like an ssd because I am planning to completely upgrade my PC 

780t case, smacks bunch of fans, i7-4790k, planning on a new mobo, getting a gtx 980 and hopefully that ssd :D 

Everyone should use ssds since they have extremely fast speeds, useful,for moving files around, speeding up boot time a lot, opening applications ALOT quicker.

People should also have ssds because just in general hard drives are slow ( well most) :3 

Thank you for reading Nick!

I would love this SSD. Since I upgraded myself, I have recommended an SSD to anyone who will listen. They are, in my opinion, the best way to create a noticeable difference in the speed of a slower computer. I can't wait for SSD technology to keep increasing!

Everyone should be using SSD's.

 

At this rate, the price/GB is amazing and hard drives are much prone to failure. To protect that data, you need an SSD!

 

My laptop has an SSD but it doesn't have nearly enough storage for what I would like to keep on it.

 

(Also, SSD's are blazing fast!)
