OCZ Agility 4 256GB SSD Review

 

Featuring the Indilinx controller - Everest 2, it offers sequential read and write speeds of 420Mb/sec and 410Mb/sec respectively. Pretty exceptional performance at a price that's attractive yet affordable.

Good speed. Lives up to marketing hype ; Looks nice ; Solid price

Packaging a bit flimsy

It's pretty amazing what $200 will get you in the SSD world these days. Not that long ago $200 would barely buy a slow low end 120GB drive. Now it gives you a fast 256GB drive!

OCZ Agility 4 256GB SSD Review

 

With nearly every company trying to expand their SSD lineup, there has recently been a veritable explosion of value orientated drives for consumers to

Good synthetic performance ; Decent real world performance ; Decent overall value ; Excellent price after MIR

No included accessories ; Partial plastic case ; Price is a touch too high without MIRs ; ONFi 1 NAND

Before we get too far into this conclusion, some mention has to be made about OCZ’s current market situation. While the last few weeks have

MUST HAVE

Expert review by: Zardon (kitguru.net)

OCZ Agility 4 256 SSD Review – 57p per GB!

 

If you are in the market for a competitively priced high capacity Solid State drive, then today's product will be particularly interesting. It wasn't so long ago that we were waiting for Solid State pricing to crack the £1 per GB barrier.

bargain price point for the capacity ; excellent storage and boot drive ; IOPS is strong ; good performance with incompressible and compressible data

Vertex 4 is faster and only £39 more expensive

Kitguru says: The Vertex 4 is competitively priced but the Agility drops the cost per GB to under 60p. Fantastic!

OCZ Agility 4 (256GB) Review

 

For the last few years, OCZ's consumer SSD lineup has primarily consisted of two models: Vertex and Agility. The history of these two goes all the way back to 2009 when OCZ realized that they can differentiate their SSDs by equipping them with...

OCZ Agility 4 256GB Solid State Drive

 

Just because some things are equivalent, does not mean they are the same. In the same way no one refers to "8 Mile Road" as "12.8748 Kilometer Road", or say "Give them 2.54 cm and they will take it 1.609 km" instead of "Give them an inch and they will...

If you're looking for a strong performing, high capacity SSD but don't have the cash to step up to an ultra high performance model, then the Agility 4 would be a drive worth considering. The Agility 4 offers strong write performance, reasonable read...

OCZ Agility 4 256GB Solid State Drive Review

 

Final Thoughts When a product gets released it is never perfect, even though it goes through many different types of tests and procedures there are always things that can be improved or simply looked over.  This is why you see software or firmware...

OCZ Agility 4 256GB Review

 

History has shown that the solid state drive has had a profound impact on the end user. Drastically reduced access times and much faster read/write throughput have been benefits to users willing to make that jump from a traditional spindle drive to a...

Write performance ; Low cost ; Low access times ; TRIM support ; 2Xnm MLC NAND ; OCZ support

Read performance

When you look at the testing overall the Agility 4 is not the fastest drive on the market but one that functions well when used with workloads that exploit its strengths. Overall read performance is lower than most of the drives I have tested while the...
