Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

ICON Loading...

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, 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, 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 eggsRMA through OCW Flawlesslew

This review is from: Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Drive worked great for about 18 months. A well designed product.

Cons: The drive died, couldn't mount one day, then system couldn't find it. Sent it to OCZ RMA and it was perfect, had a new drive in about two weeks. Luckily, I back up often.

2 out of 5 eggsStumped

This review is from: Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Worked great on the ancient Mac Mini I had.

Cons: Tried to transfer the drive to a Windows 7 machine and it would not recognize it. I downloaded the bootable OCZ toolkit and still no joy. I now have a 120GB paper weight. Tried to install Win 7, then Ubuntu just to format it... unrecognizable even as the only HDD drive in the machine.

Other Thoughts: Stumped. Going to try for an RMA...

1 out of 5 eggsAnother OCZ Agility 3 Failure

This review is from: Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: When these drives work they are one of the fastest in the business. I have always obtained a 7.2 to 7.9 windows rating on these drives and I have put over 50 of these drives in my companies fleet.

Cons: They fail without warning...POOF.... Dead.... I've seen 12 failures in one year. Some have failed in the first week.
This most recent failure happened on day 2 after installation.

Other Thoughts: One good thing though, OCZ has to date stood behind every drive I have contacted them about. They have replaced or repaired every drive I have sent them.
But that doesn't change the fact that these failures have cost me and my company a lot of unnecessary down time, expense and some lost data. I will stick with the Samsung 840series from now on.... I have not seen one fail yet.

2 out of 5 eggsGood when it works

This review is from: Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast
quiet
cheep
matched my system theme
Seems like a excellent SDD when working

Cons: From the first day I had it, it was doing the "cold boot error" where it was not being recognized in the bios on a cold boot. I usually have to restart the computer several times for it to start working properly.

Other Thoughts: I knew it was a gamble when purchasing a product that was cheep and refurbished. Lucky for me newegg is very willing to replace it. :)

1 out of 5 eggsWorst tech support

This review is from: Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast if it works

Cons: This was giving corrupt file warnings right out of the box. Obviously had problems. Called, emailed tech support, got the same email form responses over and over again. Did all the firm ware updates ect, ran there tool box ect. over 5 phone calls and 20 or thirty emails and got the same from letters back over and over again. Explained we were a professional shop, know what we are doing, and know it did not work right out of the box. Got an other one of those email form letters

Other Thoughts: Horay for New Egg!!!!
OCZ is the worst, most unwilling, least knowledgeable, tech support we have encountered in over 20 years in the business. They will do anything except cheerfully replace a bad unit to the point of dealing with them exceeds the value of the product. Labor at 20 per hour exceeded the cost of the drive, on the first day of emails, never mind the second or third day of it, long before anything was going to get replaced from the manufacturer.
If we hadn't bought this from new egg we would have had to through it out.
Hats off to New Egg and NEVER buy OCZ

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I am very sorry to read of your problems with the refurbished Agility 3. OCZ Tech Support is widely known to offer some of the friendliest, most knowledgable support in the industry.

Any inappropriate or negligant behavior will be evaluated and responsible parties will be help accountable.

Please contact me using the email address below. In your communication please include your ticket number and email address used in registering your support ticket (if different).

On behalf of OCZ, I apologize for the inconvenience and for any frustration caused.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible company

This review is from: Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Was nice, when it worked.

Cons: 2nd replacement failed, that says enough

Other Thoughts: The company has one guy doing RMA's, he does not read the tickets. I'm going on my second replacement and they don't even have the decency to advance ship a drive to replace their SECOND defective drive.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Mike,

I am very sorry to read about your continued problems with the Agility 3. If we are not able to resolve your issues through troubleshooting we will gladly offer a replacement in accordance with the warranty terms. We also do offer Advanced Replacement RMA procedures upon request for USA customers. If you would like to request an Advanced Replacement/Advanced Shipment RMA please add a comment to your support ticket requesting this.

I will attach a link to our FAQ section. This FAQ answers many questions and contains information about Advanced Replacement RMA.

On behalf of OCZ, I apologize for the inconvenience!

Kind Regards,

Robert

This review is from: Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

5 out of 5 eggsGood Drive

This review is from: Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: So far the drive has been flawless. I use originally purchased it to boot up a secondary OS for messing around so I didn't mess up my main drive (sata III 240gb corsair gt) that I use for work. Since the drive has been fast and stable, I'm going to use it for work as well. So far I have installed SUSE, Win 7 and Win 8.1 with no problems. I also used it to play BF4 for a while to make sure it didn't fail.

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: After I bought it, the price on other sata III SSD drives that were new (not refurb) went on sale for the same price. I am always weary of refurb items. If the price drops below $50, I'll but 2 more!!! but fir $65, I'll buy new!
