OCZ Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-480G.RF 2.5" 480GB 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 and 500MB/s write, plus incredible 4KB random write performance of 45,000 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.

This review is from: Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: -Max Read/Write Speeds are exactly as specified (Best case scenario tested with ATTO)
-Well priced for 200+GB SSD.
-Still works the same as the day it was purchased after 18+ months of use.
-Windows 7 Ult boots in around 20 seconds.

Cons: -For the price, you could get 2TB+ more storage opting for a 7200rpm.

Other Thoughts: Build:
AMD Phenom 965 X4 Black @ 3.7 GHz
ASROCK 970 Extreme 3

5 out of 5 eggsWorks for me

This review is from: Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I've used this drive primarily to hold my OS and important stuff. I've had this hard drive for about a year and a half. I use it in combination with a 2TB 7200rpm internal storage drive which holds my games, movies, etc. Its been working fine for me but like I said, I only really use it for my operating system for fast boot-ups. I'm very satisfied with my purchase, I get very close to the 500 MB/s Read and Writes.

Build: AMD 965 Phenom 4 OC'd @ 3.7 GHz, Noctua C12P, AsRock 970 Extreme 3 mobo, Silverstone Strider 600W, EVGA GeForce GTX 550TI.

Cons: a little pricey for the storage capacity? When compared to other 200+GB SSDs its reasonable but for the same price, you could get 2TB+ of storage. The difference...maybe 5-7 seconds more for booting up and shutting down. A few seconds here and there loading games..

Other Thoughts: I'm kind of astonished by the mixed reviews on this SSD. So far I've had less than a handful of BSOD, usually when I'm messing around a little too much with installs, drivers, etc. I like to physically separate my data. Multiple OS on difference separate HDs, a separate HD for large DATA. I say this because the lack of extensive use may have contributed towards the solid health thus far.

1 out of 5 eggsDON'T BUY OCZ REFURBS

This review is from: Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Price. (a come-on, of course)

Cons: Failed within a week. OCz hinted they would refund/replace, but its not worth the tap dancing and second guessing I would have to do to even try it.

RUN!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Price/Performance Balance

This review is from: Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Great read/write speeds
240GB on an SSD is more necessary than I initially thought
Small and easy to install with harness
Stable

Cons: Not THE fastest SSD on the market for read or write, but read speeds are near the best right now and the read speeds will still drastically outperform standard HDDs/Hybrids

Other Thoughts: Been running this since October 2012 and haven't had a single issue. I didn't purchase refurbished but that's the only listing for my SSD that I could find. I initially thought I would just stick to a 120GB SSD, but now that I've owned it for a while I realize that would have been a mistake. I do some PC gaming, though not heavy amounts and I only purchase a couple games per year. Still, my Steam account had a few games on it already and re-downloading those plus running Windows 8.1 and all the apps I have on top of it puts me just under 200GB. Installing big MMOs like Guild Wars 2 and World of Warcraft will eat up a lot of space, so take that into consideration when you're thinking about buying an SSD. I'm really hoping to slot a 500+GB SSD in the next year. I keep a 2TB for all media storage and have deactivated routine disc scans from Windows because those can reduce the life of the SSD by running more frequent tasks on the SSD, something you want to avoid since these have a more finite lifespan than mechanical HDDs. Still, it is estimated to last around 7 years and I will more than likely move onto another SSD in well before that time. If you're looking for a more affordable SSD the Agility 3 from OCZ is worth a look. If you are more enthusiast driven, there are overall faster options elsewhere that will bill you around $250-$300 at this time, but really you're only looking to get a better Read experience, not so much Write.

2 out of 5 eggsDead on Arrival

This review is from: Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Price for the size was good.

Cons: Showed up dead on arrival. No refund policy means that I just have to wait to RMA a new one. This would be a major setback in my build if I wasn't planning on only using this as a 2nd tier SSD for storing games. I wouldn't want to use this for my system/boot drive.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Jon,

I am very sorry you received a non-working shipment! OCZ does test drives prior to shipment and incidents of DOA drives are very rare. If you haven't sought a replacement through Newegg please contact our Tech Support and we will get you taken care of. You may also contact our Support Forums as we often resolve detection issues quickly without the need for exchanges or RMA.

On behalf of OCZ, I apologize for the inconvenience!

Kind Regards,

Robert

This review is from: Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Runs just fine until...

Cons: Only had the drive about 8 months and it has already hard failed on me. No warning, just froze one day and when I rebooted the computer would not recognize the drive. Tried a different PC and same thing

Other Thoughts: Works fine until it fails. For me that was about 8 months...

2 out of 5 eggsRMA twice

This review is from: Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: SSD
RMA at OCZ advance replacement

Cons: I bought this drive brand new 3 years ago. After about 1 year it died and RMA'd it back to OCZ.

About 1.5 years later the RMA died.
I really hope the last RMA in Jan 2013 lasts longer 3-4 years.

Other Thoughts: great drive for running VM's in laptop.
