OCZ Agility 3 SATA III Solid State Drives are designed and built to provide an exceptional balance of performance and value. The Agility 3 Series implements the cutting-edge SATA 6Gbps interface to deliver excellent sequential and random data transfer rates, significantly improving your computing experience over hard drives.

In addition to enhanced performance, an Agility 3 upgrade promotes cooler, quieter, and more energy efficient conditions compared to traditional mechanical hard drives. With no moving parts, SSDs provide peace of mind with their superior durability and reliability. Unique and innovative, Agility 3 SSDs deliver a one-of-a-kind storage solution.

  • newegg Engineered for Cost-effective performance The OCZ Agility 3 SATA III Solid State Drives are designed and built for cost-effective performance. By leveraging the latest SATA 6Gbps interface and the second generation of SandForce SSD controller (SF-2281), the Agility 3 pushes the limits in both sequential and random data transfer rates with up to 525MB/s read and 500MB/s write, plus incredible 4KB random write performance of 45,000 IOPS. This significantly improves your productivity, gaming, multimedia, and overall computing experience. It is backwards compatible with SATA II / 3Gbps, and is also compliant with ATA/ATAPI-8 Standard Native Command Queuing (NCQ). (Max performance achieved using Native SATA 6Gbps chipset. Rated speeds may vary slightly depending on the benchmark used, drivers, windows version, bios version and file size.)
  • newegg A Superior PC Experience In addition to enhanced performance, an Agility 3 upgrade promotes cooler, quieter, and more energy efficient conditions compared to traditional mechanical hard drives. With no moving parts, SSDs provide peace of mind with their superior durability and reliability.
  • newegg TRIM Support The OCZ Agility 3 offers native TRIM support featured in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. Designed to maintain the performance of SSD at an optimal level over the lifetime of the drive, TRIM functions by actively deleting invalid data from the SSD’s memory cells to ensure that write operations perform at full speed. Since a memory block must be erased before it can be re-programmed, TRIM improves performance by pro-actively erasing pages containing invalid data, allowing the SSD to write new data without first having to perform a time-consuming erase command.
  • newegg S.M.A.R.T. Technology The OCZ Agility 3 adopts Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T.) which enables the PC to predict the future failure of hard disk drives. Through the SMART system, hard disk drives incorporate a suite of advanced diagnostics that monitor the internal operations of a drive and provide an early warning for many types of potential problems. When a potential problem is detected, the hard drive can be repaired or replaced before any data is lost or damaged.
  • newegg ECC Recovery Designed with the file verification and repair tool- ECC Recovery, OCZ Agility 3 provides up to 55 bits correctable per 512-byte sector (BCH), protecting your important files and sensitive data against digital corruption by using Reed-Solomon codes.

1 out of 5 eggsCrashing Daily; OCZ won't send replacement

Pros: Worked well when not crashing.

Cons: Crashing daily after 1 year, poor warranty service

Other Thoughts: Bought in 2012. After 1 year it started crashing daily. OCZ said to update firmware which helped: down to 1 crash every couple weeks. After 2 years back to daily crashing. OCZ said to re-install firmware. Didn't help. Requested replacement. OCZ REQUIRED ME TO SEND IN THE DRIVE FOR TESTING! REFUSED TO FIRST SEND ME REPLACEMENT DRIVE FIRST! So now I need to buy an additional drive to set up and use while I send this one off for testing!?! Rediculous.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I am sorry to read you have experienced issues with your system. Under normal RMA procedures your drive must be sent to us to be tested and replaced. You can request an Advanced Shipment RMA where we place a temporary authorization of a credit card and ship a replacement immediately. Eligibility for this service will be determined based on your situation and history. I recommend you contact us and inquire if this is a possibility.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Best Regards,
OCZ Support

3 out of 5 eggsGood while it lasted!

Pros: Good price, good performance for the money. Was really liking the SSD at the price.

Cons: Lasted less than 2 years which is unfortunate. I bought this back in 2012 and here we are at the beginning of 2014 and its DEAD. Replaced it with a new Samsung pro that will certainly last longer...

Other Thoughts: I can't complain too much being that the drive was as inexpensive as it was... I still am a bit surprised that it lasted less than 2 years however. I have had many HDD's last much much longer...

3 out of 5 eggsDied after a year and 2 months

Pros: was good while it lasted

Cons: Died after a year and 2 months. No warnings. Data was lost. Mostly just my programs and windows as I had a separate HDD storage drive.

Other Thoughts: Luckily it's got a 3 yr warranty. Hopefully the RMA isn't a nightmare. I bought a new Samsung SSD instead now. They're more reliable.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear mlsk8r,

Please contact our Support using the link below. We will make every effort to recover your drive without the need for a RMA. If we cannot quickly correct the issue we will make arrangements to have the drive tested and replaced in accordance with the warranty terms. If a RMA is necessary I can assure you the process is straightforward and considerate of your needs.

Thank you for sharing your feedback.

Kind Regards,

OCZ Support

5 out of 5 eggsGreat buy

Pros: Over 1 year later and still going strong. Windows boots in seconds and is very responsive. I can never go back to booting from HDDs.

Cons: Haven't had a single issue with it.

4 out of 5 eggsHave 3, work great

Pros: Excellent speed for the cost

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have bought 3 of these and have zero issues with any of them. One is running as my system drive, a second as a dedicated drive for Steam games, and the third is being used as an external drive. I've seen quite a few reviews complaining about reliability, but all three of mine have worked out of the box and have been trooping right along

1 out of 5 eggsMine failed too

Pros: Good price, decent speed.

Cons: I threw this in an old laptop I used as a backup laptop, so very infrequently. After a year the computer started freezing randomly and quickly got worse to the point where the machine is unusable.

I've removed this drive and replaced the original HDD in the machine and it is running fine again.

3 out of 5 eggsGood for the money

Pros: Like the title says. good for the money. Runs faster than my 7200rpm that it replaced. Definitely boots and runs games faster.

Cons: only getting 120mb write speed. About half of what is advertised. Running off of a SilverStone 6Gb pcie 1x controller.

Other Thoughts: caught it on sale. definitely a good upgrade for the price.

3 out of 5 eggsMostly worked for a year

Pros: Read and write speeds were very fast.
Got it on sale.

Cons: Bought it in August of 2012, it's not September 2013 and the drive appears to have failed. Windows won't detect it anymore.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good value

Cons: Drive failed one month over a year after instillation. Same issue occurred with a friend's drive along about the same timeline. Unfortunately his failed after I had already purchased mine, I didn't know ahead of time. i wouldn't recommend getting this product as it seems to be a repeated issue, his second drive has failed as well about a year or so in. I'm sending mine out for an RMA but I'm not really looking forward to even getting a new one if this is what I have to look forward to with the next one as well.

5 out of 5 eggsMacBook + This OCZ = Awesome

Pros: I put this in my unibody MacBook. The computer reboots faster than it used to open Safari. Of course, the MacBook is only sata2, but I get full Sata2 speeds. Everything worked liek a charm, no problem with drivers. In fact, I didn't even need them. I just installed them because OCZ recommended I do.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Make sure your negotiated link speed, found in system profiler, is 3Gb/s.
