Based on a cutting-edge new architecture, Agility 2 Solid State Drives deliver unprecedented performance while maintaining an affordable storage solution for early adopters looking to update their systems with the latest technology. OCZ designed the Agility 2 to excel in both sequential and random read/write rates to take your PC or notebook productivity to the next level, featuring superb 4k random writes up to 10,000 IOPS to give a performance edge over the previous generation. Using the latest controller technology, Agility 2 not only provides a faster, more responsive PC experience, but promotes cooler, quieter, and more energy efficient conditions compared to traditional mechanical hard drives.

With solid performance coupled with supreme reliability, the Agility 2 is designed to push the envelope in storage technology for those who place a premium on speed, reliability and efficiency, but demand the affordability of MLC flash memory. Built with SATA 3Gb/s, the Agility 2 Series easily integrates into today’s mobile and desktop platforms and features TRIM support to optimize performance over the drive’s lifespan as the ultimate Windows 7 notebook or desktop upgrade.

  • newegg Cool, quiet and durable operation OCZ Agility 2 SSDs feature a durable yet lightweight housing, and because they have no moving parts, they are more rugged than conventional hard discs. Available in ample 40GB to 480GB capacities, the Agility 2 is an ideal hard drive replacement for first-time SSD upgraders in need of primary desktop storage or a spacious application and OS boot drive.
  • newegg Ultimate reliability Designed for ultimate reliability, Agility 2 Series SSDs have an excellent 2 million hour mean time between failure (MTBF) ensuring peace of mind over the long term. Agility 2 Series comes backed by a 3-year warranty and award-winning technical support for the ultimate peace of mind.
  • newegg TRIM Support The OCZ Agility 2 Series SSDs offer native TRIM support that can be enabled in Windows 7. 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 2.5" to 3.5" Adapter Included The OCZ Agility 2 Series is specifically designed for notebook computers coming in a 2.5-inch hard drive form factor. In addition, the installation kit includes a 2.5" to 3.5" bracket for matching with 3.5” drive bay to extend the storage of your desktop computer.

5 out of 5 eggsReliable drive

Pros: I use this drive in a rack mount computer that functions as my keyboard and sample device for a local band. It gets banged around and functions in poorly ventilated areas, travels in cold conditions, etc. I have experienced no problems with this device.

Cons: None

1 out of 5 eggsPoor Quality - Failed w/in 1 Year

Pros: Fatster Speed when it worked.

Cons: Bought 2, both failed. Tried s/w update, secure erase on one - worked for one month, then it failed again. Replaced with another brand.

Other Thoughts: 3 out of the 5 OCZ SSD purchased in the last year have failed already. Not worth the time loading your OS, and software to only have it work for a few months. Better to just buy Intel, or Samsung. Cost is only a little more. Have had good luck with both these brands.

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsPOFS - ZERO STARS

Pros: cheap JUNK.

Cons: Doesn't work for SQUAT. The problems with this drive are too numerous to list, so just save your money and DONT EVERY BUY OCZ ANYTHING.
I sent the drive back to OCZ, they just shipped it right back to me. It still doesn't work. You'll spend twice the purchase price in shipping.

1 out of 5 eggsAVOID OCZ SSDs LIKE THE PLAGUE

Pros: Fast access times and read speeds FOR THE SHORT TIME THEY WORK

Cons: OCZ do NOT manufacturer quality drives, and their tech support is HORRENDOUS. I had a agility to fail after a month, it just stopped being recognized in bios or in windows. After being pulled from system for a few days it finally started being recognized, and HDTune would not finish a speed test before failing. I accessed the SMART data using gsmartcontrol and there was a failure. I fixed the drive using hardware manager, and I contacted OCZ RMA and sent it back in the retail packaging with all documentation and antistatic bag. OCZ stated there was nothing wrong with the drive, and sent the drive back to me in the sleeve with NO antistatic bag or retail box or documentation.

Other Thoughts: OCZ's customer support is trash, their drives' quality is horrendous. The only positive experience I had from owning this garbage of a product is the fact I kept my original OS installation disk (WD AAKS 500 gig) so I didn't have to reinstall windows when this shoddy product crapped out after a few weeks of moderate usage. Look elsewhere for a SSD !

1 out of 5 eggsNever again

Pros: Fast when it works

Cons: I've had 3 of these drives. One died within 3 weeks. The 2nd died within a year. I'm ordering a replacement for the 3rd because I just don't trust these drives any more. Pay a little more and get a better, more reliable drive. Stay away from these pieces of junk!

Other Thoughts: What else can I say???

1 out of 5 eggsKeeps Dying

Pros: Fast, Easy to configure, Great Laptop Drive

Cons: Keeps failing. I'm on my 3rd drive in the last 6 months.

Other Thoughts: I'm tired of re-loading Windows 7 and all my programs every few months. OCZ is good about replacing the drive, but give me a break.....I'm going back to Western Digital Spin hard drives.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, we are very sorry for the difficulties. Turning off sleep/hibernate modes can help with reliability in many systems. We have tips and information on our support forums at the link below that may be of help. Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsGood speed and reliability

Pros: Bought this SSD for a Mini ITX build server to run Clearos as a router. Once I had it aligned properly under Linux on an EXT4 file system with trim and all optimization tweaks it doubled in speed. Getting 232MB/s read and about 209MB/s writes under Linux, which is amazing.

Cons: It's not free
