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. 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.

Super fast even in older system ** UPDATE! 3/10/2016 7:33:00 PM

Pros: Very easy to install and very fast. I'm using Ubuntu Linux with a fine-tuned 3.2.9 Kernel. All of the superfluous drivers, features and hardware support were removed. So the system really flies! Startup and shut-down was always pretty fast but now it's insane. I didn't time it but it's only a few seconds to start. Haven't tried to play my Steam games yet but that's next.

STILL WORKING AS OF 03/10/2016!!! Purchased on 2/27/2012!!
My Mushkin was purchased 6/23/2015 and died 3/09/2016. OCZ for the win.

Cons: Sounds like the only con is if you're running Microsoft Windows and didn't get the driver and/or have a virus. I certainly don't miss those days! World Of Warcraft runs better on my Linux than it did with Windows + typical virus + nearly useless anti-virus. ;-)

Overall Review: I read that in Linux the NO-OP scheduler was best for SSD. I recompiled the 3.2.9 kernel with NO-OP scheduler support and removed the CFQ.
SORRY! My system is old- only the SATA II. Can't wait to see these numbers in a new system from Newegg.

They function even after several years. 11/28/2015 8:05:15 AM

Pros: I've got 2 of these and they're much faster than a platter drive, especially in RAID 0. Silent, cool, great on power consumption.

Cons: Performance doesn't even come close to specifications, and they're way too expensive when comparing speed/capacity to more modern drives.
>Up to 525MBps (SATA 6Gbps)
AS SSD benchmarks never went above 138MB/s Sequential read for a single drive. Other benchmarks show similar results.
>Up to 475MBps (SATA 6Gbps)
AS SSD never went above 40MB/s Sequential for a single drive. Same for other benchmarks.

Also AS SSD is reporting that 'pciide' and '31 K' is bad on both drives, but all S.M.A.R.T. values show they're in pristine shape. Don't know what's going on there.

Overall Review: Since I got these drives when they were new (and on sale at the time), they've been worth it for what I've put them through and they're still working just fine. Still, for the same price today you can get faster, more spacious drives. Don't buy these new, you can get better for the same price.

DIED ! 7/15/2015 9:55:03 AM

Pros: I guess the price was ok, except it died just sitting there not being used.

Cons: The drive died and took my main install with it.
The other OCZ agility 2 I had died as well -
OCZ is THE ONLY SSD brand that has EVER DIED on me.
I've (own) owned a lot of other SSDs.

Overall Review: DON'T buy any OCZ SSDs EVER - they just up and die for no reason whatsoever.

You don't even have to be using them - they can die just sitting idle.

They probably have a timeout software glitch their evil leadership had installed just so they could sell more of them.

NEVER AGAIN - and I will tell everyone I know.

Died 1 Month Out of Warrantee 3/26/2015 6:10:19 AM

Pros: Fast, easy to install, low-heat.

Cons: Failed with little warning.

Overall Review: Funny how it died 1 month outside of it's three year warrantee - makes you wonder if there is a firmware kill switch in there.

Be interesting to hear from other owners 0-90 days outside the warrantee.

3 Years 3/25/2015 9:28:46 PM

Pros: Fast, reliable, competitively priced (when originally bought)

Cons: Firmware update can be cumbersome

Overall Review: I'm three months shy of three years ownership of this drive. I installed WoW on it, I use it to work from home (IT support), and it's the primary drive in my primary home box. It hasn't given me a day of trouble in three years. It's one of my favorite purchases I've ever made for a home computer. I wish I had another so I could RAID them. No regrets, great drive.

Was Good while worked 3/21/2015 9:51:41 PM

Pros: Has this drive installed in my grand daughter's computer for almost three years, Worked well no problem till this week. This week computer started crashing every 10 to 15 minutes. Troubleshooting isolated the problem to SSD replaced SSD now system running fine no problems.

Cons: Product warranty at time I bought the drive was mentioned three years from date of purchase which runs out in a month. Checked the support site for OCZ technology, This model is now classified as legacy model and site stated warranty for this product is three years from the date of purchase or January 2015 whichever comes first. Out of luck now.

Overall Review: This product gave good service while it worked will not complain.

Was great when it worked 3/8/2015 8:48:10 AM

Pros: The drive worked great for the time I had it.

Cons: The drive died just a little under the 3 year warranty. I thought I was lucky to get an RMA, until I went to check OCZ's page. Great.

( http://ocz.com/consumer/support/warranty )

* Agility Series SSDs are supported 3-Years from date of original purchase up until Jan 22, 2015, whichever comes first.

Thanks OCZ! It was only 2 years and some months!
