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 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...

GREAT HARDWARE

Expert review by: Jake Mete (pureoverclock)

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...

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 will test the Agility 3 SATA III SSD by OCZ Technology. This new series of SSDs is based on new technology and has been promoted by the company as a more cost-effective alternative to current SATA 6Gbps SSDs on the market.

The Agility 3 240GB SSD offers a dynamic performance envelope which includes extremely high read/write speeds under light/typical desktop usage. If you are after performance in the storage then look no further.

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.
