OCZ Agility 3 240GB Review


OCZ already ships two drives with the blazing-fast SF-2281 controller—the Vertex 3 and the firmware-tweaked Max IOPS Vertex 3. So, why a third? Like its predecessors the Agility and Agility 2, the Agility 3 is OCZ's “mainstream” SSD for this...

Nearly as fast as other SF-2281 drives; cheaper

Big slowdowns when writing incompressible data

The good news is that the Agility’s use of cheaper NAND only becomes a problem in a few situations, most of which are unlikely to impact home users. The slowdown is only apparent in tests that read and write large amounts of incompressible data to...

Review: OCZ Agility 3 240 GB Solid State Drive (SSD, SATA 3)


Guarantor of Performance. OCZ Technology's Agility 3 Solid State Drive (SSD) is a fast mainstream solution with modern SandForce SF-2281 Controller and SATA III interface. Because of its low entry-level price and its high transfer rates, it offers a...

To summarize, the performance and the modern technology of the OCZ Agility 3 are convincing. Users who frequently operate with data difficult to pack should rather buy one of the Intel solutions or the more expensive Vertex 3

OCZ Octane SSD (256GB)


Powered by the new Indilinx Everest controller, the OCZ Octane SSD is supposed to be different from other recent solid-state drives that use the well-established SandForce controller. However, chances are you'll find it exactly the same as any other...

The OCZ Octane SSD offers a large amount of storage at a relatively low price. The drive supports SATA 3 (6Gbps), performs very well, has up to 1TB of storage space, and works with all popular platforms, including Windows, Mac OS, and Linux.

The OCZ Octane SSD is comparatively slower in terms of data transfer speed than other SATA 3-based solid-state drives. The drive is significantly more expensive than traditional hard drives of the same capacity.

The OCZ Octane SSD makes an excellent host drive for any laptop or desktop. It offers great value in terms of performance and cost, especially for an SSD.

OCZ Agility 3 (60GB)


The OCZ Agility 3 is a small step down from its big brother, the OCZ Vertex 3 . The new drive is slower and doesn't include a drive bay converter to conveniently fit in a desktop computer. Other than that, it shares the same design and features as the...

The OCZ Agility 3 solid-state drive supports SATA 6Gbps and offers fast performance. The drive works in any SATA-based storage application and is relatively affordable.

The OCZ Agility 3, though fast, is noticeably slower than other SATA 6Gbps SSDs without being proportionaly cheaper. It's capped at only 240GB, takes a long time to format, and doesn't come with a drive bay converter to fit in a place of a 3.5-inch...

With fast performance and a competitive price, the OCZ Agility 3 SSD makes a very good replacement hard drive for any computer, especially one that has built-in support for SATA 6Gbps.

OCZ Agility 3 (240GB) Review


OCZ has been at the forefront of each generation of SandForce SSD release since the debut of the SF-1500 based Vertex Limited Edition. More recently the Vertex 3 was the first client SSD to use SandForce's SF-2281 controller. Many of you have written...

OCZ's Agility 3 is a mixed bag of performance. For typical desktop workloads and light usage, the Agility 3 looks a lot like a Vertex 3. It's only when you start mixing in data that's not easily compressed/deduped that the Agility misbehaves. As a...

OCZ Agility 3 60GB SSD


A couple days ago I had an urgent need for an SSD for my laptop and saw OCZ Agility 3 on sale in local computer store. I decided to buy it without any further inspection what kind of disk it was and thought you might be interested in our thoughts about...

Price ; Availability

Speed ; Compatibility problems with some motherboards

Despite having some initial compatibility problems with my Lenovo Thinkpad T61, OCZ Agility 3 proved to be quite a good SSD in its price-range. Performance was bit disappointing considering the numbers OCZ claimed it to be able, but then again in real...

OCZ Agility 3 240GB


Large capacity SSD with the latest SandForce controller and a good price.

As we've said countless times, the single biggest bottleneck in modern systems is the traditional plattered hard drive. If you want a performance boost then using an SSD in your system will make such a massive difference that you'll wonder why you...

excellence in market and potential

OCZ Agility 3 240GB Solid State Drive


You know what I don't like about hot weather? Well, it has got to be the heat. (No kidding, right?) And with all the heat, sometimes it is just a bit hard to get my brain working correctly, and a working brain is very important if I want to write a...

OCZ Agility 3 240GB SSD


OCZ technology has made some great strides in the SSD space since they jumped into it. A dazzling array of options and formats brings more choices to the consumer, allowing buyers to find products to fit their specific needs (and budgets). Support for...

After a week of use, the Agility 3 continued to impress, performing extremely well in all aspects of typical operating functions. Normal desktop applications appear instantly, and even larger applications like games take less time to load.

OCZ Agility 3 240GB SSD Review


Today we are looking at a drive which OCZ hope will find a slightly more value orientated place in the market, the Agility 3. Based on the same controller as the Vertex 3 range we still get the same great features however the other internal components...

Yet another high performance SSD from OCZ. It outperforms the competition in day to day use and is priced at a very competitive level.
