Apacer AS330 Panther Giveaway

Recommended Posts

With technology becoming better and better by the minute an SSD in any kind of build is now a must , like using an SSD for your operating system drive and an HDD for storage or for the best speed (concidering SSD kinda have less life then HDD for now ) just use a few SSD for system drive and storage.

I want isnt big enough of a reason as much as I just drastically need a new SSD which I'm not able to afford at the moment as Im in college even as much as I need it cuz my machine is running only 1 SSD at the moment for everything and its slow as you just cant imagine. This will just be such an epic thing to get , it will so much improve my computer expirience since soon Im thinking of doing some pretty stressing things like some image and video editing.

Thanks guys and really hope I win :)

Oh wow, that's cool. I have been looking into getting an SSD actually (except I have to upgrade other stuff to.. So finances man..)

Reason why I would love one is because my current HDD is just.. Slow. For boot times of Windows, but also have some programs and games I have. Would love to try and set it up as a scratch disc once too, just to see how performance is (how much it increases)


Good luck to everyone entering :D

I plan on donating the SSD to my grandmother who desperately needs one in her laptop and can't currently afford one.

Why do I want an SDD? Which crazy person wouldn't say yes to a new SSD... Especially a free one at that. 

 

Seriously though, hadn't even heard about Apacer until now. Might just be me, but would be nice to see if brand reach isn't always everything ;) 

 

Plus need dem jiggabytes and speed.

When building low budget PCs i usually dont add an SSD but i would always recommend getting one down the line. They are great and are just the best UMPH to an old system. If i get one of these bad boys i would add it to my sister ummm Legacy PC. It has a 320gb 5400 rpm O_O

I really want to win, since I don't have money for an SSD, and only have 1 hard drive in my PC. I've been wanting to get an SSD because my hard drive is 3Tb and can not utilize it properly when it is a boot drive. So please consider me 😄

I'd like an SSD I could put a few games on, and if not that, my second rig is running a HDD for Windows 10 instead of an SSD and it takes ages to boot up.

Also everyone should get an SSD as a drive for windows. Doesn't sound like it would be that much better but once you switch you do not want to go back.

i would want a ssd in my laptop because it has a 160GB 5200 rpm hard drive and it is really slow. i use this computer for homework and work. i already upgraded the ram but its still slow. i think everybody should have a ssd because there more reliable and there faster to use and if you drop your computer on the couch the ssd wont make a scratching or grinding sound like HDD drives.

I currently have an SSD in both my systems and it pains me watching my mums computer. Would therefore love the opportunity to install an SSD in her computer, so that it's actually usable.

Thanks for doing these giveaways!  If I win, the SSD will go into the new desktop I'm going to build this summer.  It would free up some of my budget to get a better processor or graphics card and would no doubt get me a much better computer.

Thanks for all the entertaining and informative videos you guys put online.  I just discovered your scrapyard wars series and I'm working my way through them.  Keep up the good work!

I would like a new SSD for my system because my 64GB SSD is basically full and I cant decide what to kick to the HDD in my laptop - desktop is fine though :D. Everyone else needs an SSD because they are sooooooo much faster! 14 seconds boot time, who doesnt want that??

Hi Linus & the Gang,

 

I would love to win one of those awesome SSDs because I recently discovered you guys on Youtube, and you've taken what was a passing interest of mine, playing about with computers, and given me the confidence to build my own computer from scratch. Using your tips and watching your videos, I love scrapyard wars by the way, more of that please; I have learnt so much about computer building, one of the last pieces on my wishlist is an SSD, so I would be majorly excited to win one!

 

Thanks guys, and goodluck to everyone :-)
