Apacer AS330 Panther Giveaway

Recommended Posts

I already have an SSD in my PC, but my mom's desktop doesn't and its sooooo slow. Everything takes forever to load on that old HDD. It's painful to use.. 

I have been planing on buying an SSD for her so this would be an awesome gift.

 

Thanks for the awesome giveaway! Good luck everyone!

We need more people to get SSDs for the "trial and error" since SSDs are not near perfect in term of durability as the HDDs are(reads/writes limit). And more people using this technology means that companies making SSDs will have a "bigger pot to pick from" so the technology behind SSDs will mature even faster, like the transition from magnetic to optical storage did.
Please excuse me for my grammar or spelling errors there since i tried to make an analogy from my language to english. Plus, i hope what i wrote made sense in a way.


oh noes D:

I Just upgraded my case to silent fans; now I just need an SSD so my whole system with 7 fans (incl. CPU, power, and video card) will be quieter than the single cooling fan I use on my modem.

 

Please, please, pretty please.

 

Oh, and BTW, that Fallout 4 case is "Da Bomb"!

My current desktop does not have an SSD and it makes file transfers and from my laptop to desktop super slow. SSD's are amazing and have a noticable speed increase verses a HDD and I always include them when I reccomend builds for my friends.

One can never have enough SSD space, isn't that what Linus taught us ? So yeah, I would use the SSD to have more than one game at a time on SSD.

The speed difference between spinning rust and an SSD is well worth the small premium in price. Time is money and SSDs save so much time

I was actually considering getting an SSD for my old Netbook at some point. It's not the most impressive machine ever but for basic tasks it still does the trick. The only issue is the HDD. I'm used to SSDs at this point, every other machine I use has a boot SSD. Replacing that HDD with an SSD would give my old Netbook new life

SSD's are great for pretty much every PC. Once you have your bare minimums, an SSD will give you those fast boot times and launch speeds that make you the envy of all around! SSD's are also much more durable than a standard HDD, and with no moving parts, they're quieter as well (although those of you who care about hard drive noise must have good ears)

I need it to upgrade my crappy harddrive on laptop/desktop, both are slow at moving heavy files.. 

and of course everyone should have ssd, cause it is 2016 and we dont want old harddrives spinning like crazy or waste our precious times moving files.

Oh how much I'd love to have an SSD... I am about to build a new budget PC but couldn't afford to get an SSD and stuck with a 1TB hard drive. It's a great boost for anyone's computer and is what I think would make an old PC feel like new again.

Got a 120GB SSD for my boot drive but it fills up quick when using it to edit videos on. Have to copy them from the HDD to the SSD to work on can take quite some time and it would be nice to have the extra space for these videos. SSD's are great for when you need/want that extra performance a single HDD just can't deliver.

everyone should have an ssd, not only because of the superior copying or writing speed but because it makes your whole system feel much snappier and thus gives a better user experience, something not really quantifying by numbers to someone who has never used one before....

I'm currently maxing out my 120gb ssd. I have to monitor everything that goes into it. I

 

ts annoying as hell but the performance gained from moving from a HDD is drastic

Everyone should have an SSD, because they're so damn quiet and fast. My dream is to have a completely silent build (or at least as quiet as the one you guys got tested with Mike from Silent PC Review). My hard drives are always unmounted to make sure they don't spin up, but I'm running out of space on my SSD (okay, I already ran out!), and would love to give it a brother... A brother, that'll also be a lot faster!
