Apacer AS330 Panther Giveaway

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

TechTips is easily the best channel on YT (including all the offshoots)

 

regarding this competition,

i am currently working on my project pc, and it's my only pc...

As a parent i dont have any spare dollars to throw around and waste on personal computer components.

i am currently running a P5Q-PRO mobo, and LGA775 Core 2 quad q9400 (oc to 3.6ghz) a very generous friend of mine has donated some components, such as 4x2gb DDR2 (yes 2) RAM and his HD4850.

i am trying to get THE MOST out of this tired old system, as the alternative having no pc at all (money to upgrade is not an option)

one of these single SSDs would boost another 5+ years into 'the old girl', and will keep the VERY few dollars i posses to going to the more important things in life. cheers for the thought

 

p.s i understand that the old mobo will downclock the SSD and thus not take full benefit of SATA3, but will still offer an unrivaled boost

pp.s the video about the server drive failure...best video ever

I have a custom rig where some friends helped me pick out parts and actually pointed me out to a video of linus' on how to build a pc which i followed to build mine :) so thank you for that. I didn't know about you guys before that. Anyway, i have a 240GB PNY Optima SSD which is redlining full of games; basically i'd like a new/free one cuz i want another SSD but they're not exactly super cheap so when Dark Souls 3 or No Man's Sky come out i'd like enough space to fit them in. But really i wanted an excuse to say thanks, so danks. Good luck and congrats to whoever wins!

I want an SSD so I can get rid of the HDD in my laptop. 

 

Everyone should consider getting an SSD instead of an HDD now that the prices are becoming more affordable and because they are much faster.

I think having an SSD is a must for anyone that wants to be able to perform even basic tasks on their computer more efficiently. I have switched to all SSD storage and will never go back. I tend to back most of my stuff up in cloud storage as well so I don't need any loud data drives either. Nothing beats a super fast quiet system. Not to mention they will make any laptop better just by adding an SSD. No need to buy a new one just update it!

I would want this SSD so that I can put it into my new rig that I just built a few weeks ago and I think it'll be a great late birthday present from the LTT group.

I'm a highschool student and recently have been getting into video editing. It's pretty obvious that I could really use the fast speeds from an SSD, and the storage space. I've been looking into buying an SSD, but buying a decent one with enough storage would cost more than I can afford.

I didn't really see the point of SSDs for the most part. That was until I picked up the HP Stream 11. Even though it's only an MMC SSD, I actually found it's more useful then I thought, booting up in a fraction of the time that my desktop takes.


Normandy - Intel Core i5 3470, 8 GB Corsair Vengenace LP, EVGA GTX 960 SSC, Gigabyte GA-Z77M-D3H-MVP, WD Blue 1 TB, Seagate 320 GB (steam), Seagate 320 GB (experimental, second OS, etc), Windows 8.1 + Ubuntu 14.10

A SSD corrects one of the biggest bottlenecks in your system:  Read/write speeds.  When you make the switch, your computer or laptop will seem better than brand new.

The reason why I would like to win this SSD is because the Apacer panther SSD's are amazing . Also I am runing a small youtuber channel that I am trying to grow and by winning this give away In stead of using a hard drive to render my vidoes slowly I can use an SSD that can render faster and thus produce more quality content for my viewers and also produce it more quickly. This are the main reasons why I would want to win this give away!

Currently building my first gaming pc after years of using a Mac... Only using the Scrapyard Wars mentality and using craigslist/local resale shops. So a legitimate SSD would be a huge help in making a decent tower.

An SSD would be awesome to have because I have not experienced the awesomeness of an SSD with its blazing fast speed!

Right now I am trying to upgrade my 6 years old PC and one of these SSDs would be a very big improvement, since so far I have only managed to chance the CPU cooler.

SSDs are great because they have no moving parts, so they are silent, fast and reliable. One of this babies would give my old PC a chance to be by my side for another 6 years!

I just recently finished building my very own computer for the first time. I saved up forever but i pushed my budget and i ran out for the SSD. Instead i put HDD in my new rig. What a mistake. It is so loud and the boot time is just god awful. I would love to be able to have a SSD in my computer. It would make the computer run and sound so much smoother. I personally believe that while yes dollar per GB is cheaper for a HDD it is completely worth saving up and skipping the HDD and going straight for a SSD, I would recommend this to anyone who is thinking of building a computer. While sure a HDD is cheaper you want to be able to build a nice quite system. One that you can be proud of and not one that you can hear the humming from all the way down the hall. Be respectful to yourself. Don't go the i did and cheap out and buying a HDD; go with the SSD. IT is worth it. That is why i would love to be able to win a Apacer AS330 Panther 240 G SSD.

 

Thank you for your time.
