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 plus incredible 4KB random write performance of 22,000 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 eggsBoth SSDs Failed...

Pros: Fast & High Capacity... but this doesn't mean much with such a high failure rate.

Cons: My first SSD failed after a month. Had it replaced and the replacement failed after around 5 months. Now I need to get the replacement replaced...

I wish I would have purchased something else.

Other Thoughts: I'm pretty sure OCZ recognizes the fact that this drive has an unusually high failure rate. Check out the fine print on the OCZ support/warranty page:
http://ocz.com/consumer/support/warranty

"Agility Series SSDs are supported 3-Years from date of original purchase up until Jan 22, 2015, whichever comes first."

So if I'm interpreting this correctly, the 3 year warranty is not really a 3 year warranty for anyone purchasing this SSD after Jan 22, 2012!

NewEgg, please update the warranty period on your product page. This is incredibly misleading!!

OCZ, if you advertise a 3 year warranty then provide a 3 year warranty. I'm curious, has this fine print been on your warranty page since Jan 22, 2012!?

2 out of 5 eggsWarranty Followup

Pros: Fast

Cons: Original unit failed within warranty period. RMA with OCZ resulting in shipping me a REFURBISHED Vertex unit. That unit failed in less than a month. Now I am out of the warranty.

Other Thoughts: Buy the extended warranty. You will need it.

2 out of 5 eggsBuyer Beware

Pros: Fast

Cons: This drive failed during the warranty period. Newegg would not replace it (less than 1 year after purchase). After several emails with OCZ they gave me an RMA. What they sent me as a replacement was REFURBISHED Vertex 3...NOT an Agility 3 like I purchased. Do not trust the warranty.

Other Thoughts: Pay for the extended warranty from Newegg. You WILL need it.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear drjrose,

I am sorry you experienced a drive issue during the warranty period. The Agility 3 does carry a 3-year manufacturer warranty. If your Agility 3 was replaced with a Vertex 3 that is a significant upgrade. The Vertex 3 is much faster than the Agility 3. If you would like a further explanation I would be happy to discuss this with you. It is important to me and OCZ that you are satisfied with the RMA process and outcome in the rare event it is necessary.

Thank you for sharing your feedback. If you wish to speak with me directly about this you can contact me via the email address below.

On behalf of OCZ, I apologize for the inconvenience the drive failure may have caused you.

Kind Regards,

Robert

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage

Pros: Cheap but not worth it.

Cons: I bough 2 of these. They both lived about 3 months. Yeah I can warranty them for another 2 drives that will probably last a couple of months. I'll use them for target practice. At least then I can get some use out of them.

Other Thoughts: If there were free they wouldn't be worth it. Yeah sure I have backups... and sure I had 20 second boot times when it worked but when you average in the 4 weeks for RMA. That makes for a pretty slow boot time.

I'll never buy OCZ again.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Nerd3D,

We are sorry to read of your problems with the Agility 3. Please contact us to setup a RMA. The RMA process is very fast and will be completed much faster than 4 weeks, generally 5-10 business days. If you experience any issues with the RMA process please contact our Support Forum or reply to your ticket and we will help however possible. We also suggest that you visit our Support Forum at the link below for setup assistance. Proper setup can be critical for reliable operation and we are confident that we can get you running properly.

2 out of 5 eggsDied spectacularly.

Pros: Very fast, high capacity, cheap price.

Cons: Died suddenly and somewhat spectacularly. I was using it as my main boot drive in a Mac Pro tower, disk utility on multiple computers won't even recognize that it is a drive now, let alone one with useful information on it. Thankfully I back up, and the latest back up was from about 30 minutes before the failure.

Other Thoughts: While it's fast and cheap, I can't recommend using this in a professional capacity - losing a day in the middle of a week while on a project just isn't worth the price difference.

4 out of 5 eggsVery fast and Reliable

Pros: Very fast and reliable. Super light and durable. Since the first moment I bought the velocity is amazing. The time boot up is in 11sec with my macbook pro 9,1. I have clone and install the system 5 time already and always is 34 minutes or less. I also updated the firmware on the OCZ A 3 and it got even better.

Cons: support to macbook pro mid 2012 and any new generation when you are about to updated the firmware since i need to use a usb wired mouse and LAN connectivity.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Product!

Pros: I did a direct image transfer from my old laptop drive onto one of these and the thing soared. For anyone doing photoshop, video editing, or any intensive file access on a laptop, this is quintessential!
This product is has an ideal balance of write/read speed as well as storage space and comes in at an acceptable price.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsWorking pretty darn well

Pros: Boot up time decreased dramatically in Dell Inspiron 15r. No issues with instability.

Cons: none so far, but would prefer stability of now hard-to-find SLC drives for long term usage

Other Thoughts: Doing really well so far in win7/ubuntu dual-boot laptop.

1 out of 5 eggsDied after one month

Pros: Large capacity and fast. At the time of purchase this was a great value.

Cons: Died after about of month of very light use.
