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 50,000 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.

3 out of 5 eggsLasted 2 years, 2 months, 19 days

Pros: Price wasn't too bad considering the size. Works like any other drive, just plug it in and go for the most part. Small, lightweight, shock resistant and with no moving parts runs silent obviously. On a clean install my boot time was under 30 seconds. Thats fast.

Cons: They claim all kinds of crazy speed on the transfer rates. In real life situations expect around 160mb per second. I can get higher numbers with specialized bench marking software settings to create the ideal conditions for the drive. But thats just bad science. Also just a little over 2 years and it began to has intermittent failure during boot. Had it hooked up raid zero during this time period and when the drive would fail the raid controller would post and report the raid array as good but the drive itself in error. Odd that the drive would claim to be in error and yet the raid zero would still be up and functioning. this did not last because shortly there after the drive went ahead and died. I have put in for an RMA from OCZ directly.

Other Thoughts: I have purchased OCZ in the past and have had no trouble. I like the boot speed on these things and for all intents and purposes that fast boot up is why I use ssd, otherwise they are very short on storage space for the price and in real world conditions do not perform to the specs which they claim.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for the price

Pros: Has never failed.
Super fast.
Cheap

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought this 2 years ago for $65(!). I keep Windows and a few of my most used apps on it, and it works fine. Very fast and you can't beat the price.

1 out of 5 eggsBad controllers, stay away

Pros: When they work they are fine, not super fast but OK for an intro level SSD.

Cons: I've had lots of problems with these drives, and they are known for having bad controllers, you can get something much better for the same price or a little less. Stay away!

Other Thoughts: Some OCZ drives work consistently, these are not one of them.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I am sorry you are not happy with the controller used in the Agility 3. While a bit older and not nearly as robust as our more recent Barefoot 3 offerings, the controller remains capable and the drive should function properly. It is not, I would like to assist you with that. Please contact me using the email address below and I will get you taken care of.

On behalf of OCZ, I apologize for any inconvenience you have experienced.

Kind Regards,

Robert

5 out of 5 eggsOS drive

Pros: Super fast system load, office programs load. Great to install only your OS and MS Office apps on.

Cons: It's small, but if you're considering this you know that already.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to install only my OS and common apps. They are all super fast and snappy, and I still have 4TB of space on my traditional HDD's. My system boots extremely fast, but I saw the biggest difference in Word/iTunes. I'm very happy.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Upgrade!

Pros: Excellent upgrade over any HDD.

Performance was top-notch in both configurations I've tested. (see below)

I got it for an excellent price before the earthquakes/tsunamis. (48 bucks)

Cons: Lack of space. 60GB is enough for windows and a couple of programs. I recommend using it as cache with Intel Smart Response.

The speed can be a little finnicky. The rates speeds were tested on Atto, which I confirmed to be accurate. But Atto uses compressible data. Expect to see 100-200MB/s in many cases.

Other Thoughts: I've used it in two different ways. The first case, I used it as the OS and system app drive, where I saw maximum performance in certain cases, like boot speed.

However, it couldn't take advantage of the whole drive, and a lot of the data that WAS on there wasn't even accessed very often.

In the second case, I installed windows on my 320GB HDD RAID0 setup. Then I installed and used Intel Smart Response, and used the entire drive as a cache for the HDDs.

It now caches any small reads and writes, including those in games and other apps. Larger files take advantage of the fast sequential speeds of the raid0 setup, and smaller files take advantage of the fast access times of the SSD. And the entire drive is used for this process, providing the most benefit.

The caching method, for a drive this size, was by far the best option for overall performance. Still blazing boot times, but also fast game load times.


Also, the OS recognizes it as a cache, so defragging won't damage the drive. Just be sure to do it less often, since the drive would have to cache the new locations.
