OCZ Agility 3 240GB review

 

Is the Agility 3 SSD all that agile?

Latest SandForce controller ; 6Gbps SATA support

Asynchronous NAND spoils performance ; Not cheap enough compared to Vertex 3

OCZ Agility 3 review

 

In terms of price per gigabyte, OCZ's Agility 3 is an inexpensive SSD, being just 57p per gigabyte. That's less than half of the pence-per-gigabyte cost of some SSDs, and it means you'll be able to secure 240GB of space for just £139.

Cheap, but its poor performance makes you question its value

It might be cheap, but the Agility 3, but that doesn’t make the OCZ Agility 3 a good buy. If you're searching for a budget SSD, the

OCZ Agility 3 120GB SSD Review

 

We take a look a the OCZ Agility 3 120GB SSD. This SSD delivers in both price and performance. With maximum read speed of 525Mb/sec and write speed of 500Mb/sec. It's one of the fastest SSD on the market. Put it down on your shopping list!

Very fast ; Great price for it's size and performance ; Runs cool ; Totally silent

The more stuff you fill it with, the slower it goes. This is an issue for all drives however, not just this one ; I dislike mail in rebates, I would much prefer the drive simply being priced lower to begin with

This is the second SSD I've tested, it's aimed at a much lower price point market than the first one (and is half the size), but it not only traded blows in the three major benchmarks, this OCZ Agility 3 120GB drive flat out obliterated the PCMark05 XP...

OCZ Agility 3 240GB SSD Review

 

Ever since the introduction of 25nm NAND and SandForce's SF2281 SATA 6Gbps controllers, the market has seen a tidal wave of drives all competing in

Let's begin this conclusion by saying that ONFI 1 drives were never meant to compete head to head against the best this market has to offer.

OCZ Agility 3 240GB Solid State Drive Review

 

OCZ have always been a well respected brand in the SSD community and tend to offer up products available to the high-end market. This came in the likes of the Vertex range of drives with the Vertex 2 and Vertex 3 giving lightning fast performance but a...

The bottom line is that we feel for the money, there are better drives on the market and the choice in trying to make the drive cheaper by using asynchronous flash has left us with a bitter taste in our mouths and can’t wait to get stuck into the...

OCZ Agility 3 240GB SSD Review

 

Looking for a good quality, SATAIII 6Gbps Solid State Drive but on a budget? We size up OCZ's new Agility 3 series. Click to find out how this SATA III SSD performed.

Great performance ; SATAIII 6Gbps ; Competitively priced ; 3 years warranty

OCZ Agility 3 240GB SSD Review

 

This month we have seen the release of a handful of ultra fast Solid State Drives, and Kitguru has been on hand to review them in recent weeks. Today we are looking at the latest drive from market leader OCZ, the Agility 3 240GB. The Agility 3 has been...

fantastic performance ; IOPS performance is still strong ; price point is extremely competitive, between £90-£100 less than 240GB Vertex 3 ; 60GB version in this family will have a tempting price to performance ratio

Vertex 3 is faster

KitGuru says: a Stunning drive, with huge storage capacity for under £400. Well worth a shortlist.

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
