Apacer AS330 Panther Giveaway

Recommended Posts

Hi I'm 14 years old and I recently built my first PC. Picking out the parts and finally putting them together was one of the best feelings I've ever had and I would love to do it again! I have a 1 tb hard drive in my system but I want a little more storage and way more speed. I think a SSD is important because it can cut your boot speed in half. Thank you!

We go through so many spinning laptop drives at work. I'm trying to convince the IT staff that SSDs would be the way to go! Increased durability, better battery life, cooler performance.

Why do I want a free ssd? Main reason is because it is free, free is good. Second reason is to edit my wedding videos, I would love to be able to put my projects on an ssd to speed everything up. Everyone should use an ssd for faster access to storage.

Awesome giveaway, guys. I'm slowly acquiring parts to build a PC for my parents, so this would be super helpful for me! Everyone needs an SSD to prevent the anger of watching loading screens!

Im currently building a new pc and would love to see what booting off an ssd is like. I think everyone should have an ssd cause the speeds (i hear) are great :D

Rocking an SSD even on sata 2 speeds is much faster than any HDDs out there, that's why I think everyone should have one in their system. Thanks for the giveaway!

I would love a SSD to replace and upgrade the 3 year old laptop and salvaged HDD that are in my recent build. Having an SSD would mean more reliability for my system as it has already failed once.

I've been stuck with mechanical hard drives the entire time I've owned a computer... *tear* 

I would love for this to be my lucky break to add an SSD to my rig!!

I have a decent rig (i5 4440, r9 380 4gb, 8gb ram) but i only have an hdd in it. An ssd would be sweet! And if everyone has ssds, no one ever has slow load tines and soo on! (Unless ur running from a pentium 4. Then you can't be saved.)

My computer-made-NAS definitely needs an upgrade, so I was planning on trading a 240GB SSD to a friend so I could use their 120GB SSD for caching my drives. i think everyone should have an SSD because caching is great, and well... boot times.

I would love to win this because I am in the process of building a custom gaming PC for my best friend and the budget as it stands doesn't allow for an SSD. I would love it if he had the opportunity to have a SUPER snappy system.

I want this SSD because USB Type C is the future and it would be awesome to get the jump on this technology. Also more fast storage is always good and boot times on computers is ridiculous.

The speed boost of having an SSD is enough of a reason why everyone should have it in their system in my opinion and I don't have one yet so it would be pretty cool to win one! :D

I think that SSDs should be standard in all laptops nowadays as they are so much more durable and fast, making hardware which is considered pretty basic to be able to have considerable performance. I think for desktops, a SSD is really great for booting and most used programs. I personally have a SSD in my laptop and my desktop but there isn't a lot of space and would love to expand or be able to use RAID to make one 'big' hard drive.

My external USB 3 HDD died, but the enclosure still works. I'll make the fastest external drive ever with this SSD in there!
