I've been looking at upgrading my 2 HDD RAID0 for a while now, I'd install my brand new copy of windows 8.1 pro on it 

as for the second give away I work nights as an security guard so keeping the phone charged up is always a good idea

The SSD would be filled fairly rapidly with all the games that won't fit on my OS SSD drive which I end up not playing because of loading times on the old platters (yes this is very important).

 

The powerbank I would gift to the GF to keep in her handbag as her phone is only ever charged once it has already gone flat, not so good when out of range of a wall socket.

Replace my existing laptop drive which would go into a caddy to replace the DVD drive.

My daughter is always running out of power during long days studying so she'd use the Power Bank.

Thanks for the entry.

I'd love to put the SSD in my girlfriend's laptop. It's mechanical hard drive drives me crazy every time I try to use it. She just doesn't understand that there is a problem if it 'works fine':P

Been meaning to buy a power brick for a while so this would be handy. Also a SSD for my desktop would be very nice.

The SSD would be really useful because my mum keeps complaining about how slow her computer is. An SSD would be a huge upgrade because everything would load so much faster and would be a good stopgap until I get a new PC and can pass down some parts.

The powerbank would be convenient because my current one is only 2800mAh which is not enough to charge my phone even once now that I've upgraded

I'm so in the market for a power bank right now. Travelling overseas and with the new crazy restrictions that mean devices need to be able to be powered on if required is worrying me. This will ensure I will have some juice on the go.




Procrastination eventually pays off.

Please enter me in both or either. The SSD would make a very welcome change to an old HD that drives me nuts.
The powerbank would stop me worrying about travelling with multiple devices that may have to be powered on at borders and also be useful in situations like this last weekend when the power went out.

WOuld love to win either.

The SSD to speed up my intolerably slow desktop computer. Having never used a computer with an SSD in it, my review would be from a complete newbies point of view :-).

The Power Bank would be useful for my aging S3 and its painfully short battery life. Be lucky to get through 6 hours before needing to look for a power point.

I have travel in my near future and would find great use for either product. SSD would survive the manhandling of customs and baggage bounce of the trip and the travel bank means I don't have to worry about chargers and plug convertors.

Please, please, please.

Extra SSD for my raid 0 setup and on the go with my M8 (2600mA) battery is too short for me. :(

Just a thought for their advertising potential here....

How about a GZ "Cost +5%" limited offer for all entrants in this competition. We DO represent the highest level of Tech purchase advisors, and personal Gadget Collectors here anyway don't we? The more of us they sell a quality product to, the higher their exposure will be exponentially... right?

Cool! I love SSD's. I would use the SSD in the home server to run faster.... I am having trouble fitting Windows onto my current SSD:

256 MB Mini SD

The powerbank would come with me on trips.... Kids are always complaining of flat devices....




My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.
