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 512GB pushes the limits in both sequential and random data transfer rates with up to 525MB/s read plus incredible 4KB random write performance of 22,000 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 eggsIntermittent connection

Pros: This unit allowed me to install games at a mind blowing speed! I installed the entire Sims 3 disc collection in approx 2 1/2 hours!
I like the size (512 gigs) for the price.
I like the company OCZ. I have run their SSD's before with no problems and I strongly believe they are a leading manufacturer of SSDs.

Cons: This particular SSD is from the Agility 3 line. there is no lip for the SATA cable clip to lock onto to hold it in place.

Other Thoughts: I installed the SSD, noticing that the SATA cable didn't seem to quite "snap" into place. It just kind of slid in until it stopped.
I had to go to Disk Management and do the quick setup. Then I loaded a bunch of games. I gamed for the night. Once I had rebooted the computer, it no longer saw the drive as connected. It didn't show up in Disk management or EaseUS Partition Master. Figuring a loose connection, I shut down, remove the tower panel and jiggled the wires and rebooted. Presto! There was the drive!...til I rebooted again.
I then disconnected all peripherals and partially disassembled the tower and moved all wires to better locations and reduced a lot of stress as the new routes were more professional. I re-installed the tower and set it back up....once again, no SSD was seen. I powered down, pushed the SATA wire into the connection and restarted. This time the computer saw the drive. Once I rebooted, it was gone again.
I RMA'd the device online with Newegg with no problems. I will pack and return it tomorrow. I am concerned that it will be replaced with the exact same model, which may react the same way. I can't afford to upgrade to a new SSD. (A new or refurbished series Vertex 4 I would be much more confident in!)
Other than the lack of connection clip, I absolutely loved the way the Agility 3 performed. I do not feel that this unit being refurbished has anything to do with the problem. Refurbished can be looked at a couple ways. Some choose to see it as a previously used unit. I see it as a unit that has been returned to a brand new state, giving it the exact same lifespan and performance of a brand new unit.

5 out of 5 eggsUnplanned Benefits

Pros: This refurbished SSD was put through several hours of performance testing on this PC before cloning the system on to the disk and it work flawlessly. The expected benefits of PC start up, PC shutdown and the launch time of any PC based software was everything that had been written about and promised. It was the unplanned benefits that I will talk about that need to brought to light a little more often. First, the noise reduction is beyond belief because I never realized how noisy spinning disks were until I replace all my HDs with SSDs in my work desktop. The loudest thing in the box are my fans now and they are quite ones I installed two years ago to replace the noisy OEM fans. Second, power consumption has been reduce by many orders which means two things, my APC backup runs much longer when power is out and my overall electric bill gets a slight reduction but enough pennies do become dollars too.. Now. looking to replace every spinning drive with a SSD now. Third, with the reduction on power usage, I get an ambient temperature in the box that has been reduced significantly which benefits the core and component cooling on the motherboard. Which improves the potential lifespan of the equipment and experience cooler core temps when using the core at all levels of processing.

Cons: Absolutely none

Other Thoughts: With malice of forethought, I planned an unfair comparison test between this PC (2008 build) with duo-core Pent E2200 2.2 GHz, 4GB memory, two 500GB SSDs, running Win 7 Pro and PC (2011 build) with quad-core i5 2.7 GHz, 8 MB memory, one 720GB HD, running Win 7 Ultimate. My expectation was that Duo-core box would run faster but still be beaten by the Quad-core. Well... all I can say is that I need to re-think things a little on unfair tests because the Duo-core machine running with SSD left the Quad-core in the dust on the side of the road, period. Start up, shutdown, and program launches all ran faster than the Quad-core. The only time I saw the Quad beat the Duo was when running a program that didn't require access to the drives. I am truly impressed.
