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.

5 out of 5 eggsNot bad for Recertified!

Pros: performs almost as fast as my Vertex 4. 60GB runs my OS And Apps - minus Battlefield and Flight Sims......the 128 that WAS the OS Drive is now strictly for Battlefield Series and couple other games

Cons: have yet to find any....

1 out of 5 eggsNope

Pros: they worked out of the box

Cons: I am still running my system on an x58 motherboard so I already expected to only get about half the advertised read write spead. I have a 240g ocz rated for 500mb read/450mb write and I get 240mb read/ 170mb write as expected. these are rated 500/500 and im getting 130mb read/60mb write, wayyyyy to low to be acceptable.

the kicker is I want to return these and in the RMA section it says these items are not eligible for RMA and basically im stuck with them.. Sorry I will never agree with a no return policy and it was never clearly stated. I have given newegg thousands of dollars over the years, if they tell me im stuck with these items for good then Newegg lost a customer for good, I don't appreciate that kind of business. These items WILL be returned.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Consumer,

What you have observed may be normal operation of the drive. The Agility 3 uses a SandForce controller that operates in a very complicated manner. Certain features of the drive reduce the actual writes to the NAND. This specific feature results in a wide variance in observed speeds made evident by benchmarks. Different benchmarks produce different results with older SandForce-controlled drives like the Agility 3 and Vertex 3. The highest speeds you quote, 450-500MB/s is measured with ATTO Disk Benchmark. 180MB/s read 65MB/s write would be completely normal for an alternative benchmark like Crystal Disk Mark or AS SSD. Your observed speeds may be a bit lower on a X58/ICH10R SATA 3Gb/s system. OCZ outlines this for all Agility 3 drives in the publicly available Product Sheet (linked below).

If you are not able to achieve the published bechmark speeds please contact us. We will gladly help you get setup to get the most out of the drives.

Thank you for sharing your feedback!

Kind Regards,
OCZ Support

3 out of 5 eggsBought 5, 4 work

Pros: Its a ssd at a cheap price.

Cons: One was DOA. The other 4 work. Honestly, someone at quality control plug the thing in and check that it works before you mail it to me.

Other Thoughts: Lost 1 egg for one not working. One more egg off for newegg making ME pay $10 to send the thing back when it was sent to me broken. RMA should not be my expense when it shows up dead.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome for the price

Pros: its got a good price for its size and speed. i use it for my OS and it runs really fast. right now its only on Sata 2 connection due to my older motherboard. but it maxes out at though speeds so its still really fast compared to what i use to use

Cons: havnt had any issues in the time i have had it. and its used and running every single day since i got it

1 out of 5 eggsOCZ CS SUCKS!!!

Pros: Cheap

Cons: The drive failed after 3 mos. I have nearly every computer/network related cert acronym and with my extensive knowledge deduced that the drive was dead.

Talk to their CS and they have me do some other tests, fine. It is dead and I get an RMA # on 12 Sep.

I had to pay to send their dead drive back to them.
I have been without a computer, as that was my boot drive, for 21 days!!

They even were rude enough to say, we will check the drive when it arrives and if we determine it is good, we are sending it back.

They won't do a shipping exchange, pay for their dead equipment to return, offer a larger size as an apology, reach around NOTHING!! So much for creating customer loyalty with OCZ.

Other Thoughts: I wish there was a way that I could warn everyone on NewEgg about OCZ CS.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Anonymous Consumer,

We did also receive your feedback on our Support Forum but after the Online Support Manager responded we never heard back from you.

Most of this is just miscommunication or misunderstanding - let me try and further clarify or explain: OCZ does offer Advanced Replacement/Advanced Shipment for customers in the USA. OCZ does test all drives upon return under RMA. A major portion of your RMA turnaround time was the time between RMA approval and receiving your return - this itself was 8 days. We did provide an upgraded model warranty replacement.

We really care about your experience and want you to understand the process. It is unfortunate that you even needed to RMA and we take steps to make the process as easy and quick as possible. If you still have questions please respond in your forum thread and we will gladly discuss this further with you.

Kind Regards,
OCZ Support

1 out of 5 eggsComplete Garbage

Pros: installed SSD booted via OCZ toolbox via USB snd installed the newest firmware as told by OCZ, rebooted and now there is a bios HDD password set? and i cannot get past it, tried to call but no use!

Cons: EVERYTHING

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Anonymous,

Something is amiss here. A firmware update will not set a password on your drive - there is no way for that to happen. Please contact us again at 1.800.459.1816 Monday - Friday, 8am-5pm PST and let us know any previous troubleshooting did not help and we will do our best to get it sorted out.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,
OCZ Support
