Any way you look at it, solid state drives are faster than HDDs, so why not get the most bang-for-your-buck? OCZ Solid 3 SSDs are designed to provide a superior combination of value and performance, implementing the cutting-edge SATA 6Gbps interface to deliver speed that significantly improves your overall computing experience.

  • newegg Engineered for Cost-effective Performance The OCZ Solid 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 Solid 3 pushes the limits in sequential data transfer rates with up to 500MB/s read plus great 4KB random write performance of 20,000 IOPS, significantly improving 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, a Solid 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 Solid 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.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't Buy

Pros: Drive boots fast

Cons: Died in a few weeks. They offered an RMA, but the reality is that I would never trust my OS on a drive that died in a few weeks. Would not risk that again

1 out of 5 eggsBought 8/1/2012 Died 04/01/2014

Pros: Brand new out of the box it was awesome! Fast, Easy to install, Windows 7/8 & Ubuntu installed super fast. While it worked I loved it...

Cons: Now the drive is dead which was used as my master boot drive for my primary OS. When I try to reinstall windows now it says the drive is locked & needs to be unlocked to work. No idea what that means as I have never seen that error before on a hard drive & I have owned many over the years.

Other Thoughts: Think I am going to go back to SATA drives & steer clear of the SSDs a while at least until they improove them more.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome drive

Pros: I've been using two of these drives for over a year, and it's been great. I bought two when they were on sale. One for my Linux server and the other for my work laptop. No problems with either.

Cons: none.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks perfectly, but too small.

Pros: OCZ makes great SSDs, from what I've experienced. This one works perfectly and It was the right price at the time.

Cons: However, for running it as my boot-drive with Windows 7, it's just barely big enough. I could only install one or two simple programs onto it and had to keep everything else on another disk. I didn't store so much as a text file on it that I didn't need to. I edited the pagefile and had to clean / tweek my storage situation constantly.

After upgrading to a 96g SSD, I'm much more comfortable with the space allowed.

All SSD's are susceptible to write-amplification, so a smaller size is even more of a handicap. It's generally good to keep a small percentage of your drive completely empty to allow for this phenomenon.

Other Thoughts: If you want to run this in RAID, then this would be perfect! But on it's own, even as just a boot disk, it's just too small for most people's computing needs.

1 out of 5 eggsFlaky Drive

Pros: Nice fast SSD with SATA3 support.

Cons: Flakes out and loses sync with the SATA bus. Meaning the drive can no longer be read from or written to. It got progressively worse, stopping working at progressively shorter intervals.

Other Thoughts: This was probably exacerbated by several installs, but the only thing on the drive was the OS and basic updates, all non-core programs were loaded to a different drive as were user directories.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Anonymous,

We are happy to help you with this. If you visit our Support Forum we can provide tools that reset the drive to a like-new condition and update the firmware as well as assist with setup procedures. Please take a moment to contact us and we will gladly assist.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience!

Kind Regards,
OCZ Support

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome SSD!

Pros: Easy to install, Worked great with Windows 7 & 8 64Bit, Silent!, Doesn't run hot like other drives do, Its really fast!, What else to say its awesome!

Cons: None what so ever!

Other Thoughts: It is a shame they have discontinued this great little drive! I have owned & used many drives as bar back as to the old 8086, 8088, Tandy, and so on ... Yeah I a little old, but any way this is to date one of my favorite & most liked hard drives. Its silent, you cant even tell its there. Its fast, takes seconds to boot into Windows 7 64bit. It runs cool unlike your topical SATA or IDE drives. Its very small! But then again most SSDs are. I also had no problems installing it into my PC with no need to update or flash my bios to use it as I did with my old SATA's. If your looking for a great Master Boot drive & can find it any where online its well worth it! Now I am just waiting to find a decent priced 400GB+ SSD to use for my games on Steam & I will most likely stick with the OCZ which honestly I was iffy about not ever having used them before but its awesome!
