Competition Time: We’ve got two Corsair Neutron SSDs to give away!

By on October 23, 2012 at 4:15 pm

Computer running a bit slowish? Need to give yourself an extra hour to boot up in the mornings, or always lagging behind your mates when it comes to grabbing the gunner seat in the chopper when the map loads? Never fear, Corsair and are here with a competition to help you perk up those ailing load times.

We’ve two 240GB Corsair Neutron SSD’s to give away — which you may remember from our recent hardware review as being “a couple of very potent” drives with “blistering sequential performance”. The first prize winner will receive the Corsair Neutron GTX 240GB, while the runner-up will receive the regular Corsair Neutron 240GB.

How do I enter?

There’s three parts to this competition, so pay close attention!

Corsair have asked us to help promote their Facebook page, so here’s the deal: head on over to the official Corsair Facebook page and click the ‘Like’ button. Then, head on over to the official Facebook page and Like us there, as well.

Then, for the final act — leave a comment on this post, explaining how slow your computer is. Comments should follow this format: “My computer is so slow that…”. For example: “My computer is so slow that even Toby can do basic maths faster”, or “My computer is so slow that I have to boot it up at night before I go sleep if I want to use it in the morning.”

Comments should be 50 words or less in length.

Apologies to users who do not have Facebook accounts, but this competition is unfortunately open to Facebook users only! Accounts are free, though, if you need to go make one.

If your entry is selected, you will be contacted privately to check that you have Liked the Facebook pages as requested, before the prize is awarded.

When I was filling out my driver’s license application and used my I.P. Address as my Physical address, the computer was so slow I had to turn a crank to keep beast humming, much akin to the cars of old.
