February 2009 Forum Drawing - OCZ Throttle 32GB eSATA Drive

Post by Apoptosis » Sun Feb 15, 2009 8:52 am

This month the guys over at OCZ have have offered to send the Throttle 32GB eSATA Flash Driveto one of our lucky forum members. Legit Reviews did a review on this Flash drive last month and found it to be a deadly fast drive that is impressive! It retails still to this day for $95 plus shipping, so this will make a great prize for one of our lucky members. Be sure to read our review on the Throttle to find out more about it.

Image
A sophisticated alternative to conventional USB drives, the OCZ Throttle’s primary eSATA interface offers an incredible 90MB/second read speeds and 30MB/sec write speeds, increasing productivity to new heights. The substantial 8GB ~ 32GB capacities offer plenty of storage for your diverse multimedia files including high-resolution photos, high-definition movies, or large quantities of music. Additionally, users can access their data via an auxiliary mini USB port for ultimate flexibility.
Here are the rules for this months contest. These are provided to help clear things up for those that enter and might win. This is a drawing type contest.

RULES:
1) This contest is open to active forum members with a valid shipping address in North America.
2) The winner will be shipped his/her prize as soon as possible (if being shipped internationally (Canada for example) it could take 4-8 weeks by USPS)
3) The winner must have 5 posts between now and February 28th, 2009 - DO NOT DIG UP "OLD" THREADS (i.e. > 1 MONTH) - these posts will not count.
4) Reply to this post to enter the contest and that does not count as one post!
5) Spamming (~5 pointless posts over one or two days will void your entry)
6) Depending on your location it might take a while to get to you with it being winter and all. That means it could take 4-8 weeks to reach you.
7) The contest ends February 28th, 2009 at midnight with the winner being drawn the following day (or shortly after if we are busy).

Hi!

Please count me in.

I want to apologize in advance that I haven't been here for a long time. I was too busy at work. I've changed my workplace and now 'working like a beaver'.

I must admit that it's the contest that brought me back... :oops: But if this helps in anything, I DID visit the forums from time-to-time, just didn't find the time to post (I guess I'm too lazy...)

Anyone, I'll do my best to stick around and post more...

GOOD LUCK everyone! [-o<

If you are willing to paypal me the funds for shipping then sure you can enter and that goes to everyone... I spend close to $400 a month shipping stuff for Legit Reviews and with the economy in the tanks I have to watch my expenses... For example my healthcare insurance doubled this year! A free gift for you guys costs LR and the sponsor something! Keep that in mind.

Geez, I remember someone calling me crazy, for spending extra to get a 120mb harddrive. They were flabergasted with that capacity, stating I'd never use it all. And you know what? I never did!
32GB... and at that price. Technology is incredible.
Count me in.
