  • Conclusion: Shown within the results from all the tests are pretty astounding.  The correct components build around the OCZ  Agility has shown it to be a superb little workhorse which will compete with the best.  We therefore have to sit up and pay careful attention to what has been displayed today.  An SSD which has good read/write synthetic and real-time results that fall well within the quoted figures within the introduction.

  • Excerpt: It’s been a long time since we tested a single-level cell (SLC) SSD, as the market has moved almost entirely over to multi-level cell (MLC) designs. MLC is favored because it’s cheaper to produce and each cell can store two bits of data, rather than one, so you can cram more storage into each flash unit. On the other hand, SLC is faster and is rated for 100,000 read/write cycles, as opposed to 10,000 for MLC.
  • Pros: Blazing-fast speeds; 10x the life span of MLC drives.
  • Cons: Costs twice as much as MLC drives of same capacity; do consumers need a 60GB drive that lasts for decades?

OCZ Agility EX 60GB SLC SSD Review

1 December 2009
  • Conclusion: Besides outclassing all tested SSDs based on the Indilinx Barefoot controller, the Agility EX was also faster than the Corsair P128 drive, which uses the latest Samsung controller. We were a bit surprised to see the steep performance drop when running HD Tune Pro, specifically in the 1MB and random write tests where it achieved the lowest scores at 133 and 100 MB/s respectively; versus 191 and 151 MB/s for the Corsair SSD.

Benchmark Reviews
12 October 2009
  • Conclusion: Benchmark Reviews begins our conclusion with a short summary for each of the areas that we rate. The first section is performance, which considers how effective the OCZ Agility EX performs in operations against direct competitor products. For reference, OCZ specifies that the 64GB OCZSSD2-1AGTEX60G Solid State Drive should offer a maximum 255 MBps read and 195 MBps write performance. In many of our benchmark tests, the Agility-EX SSD performed at or above this rating.
  • Pros: Impressive 246 MBps read and 234 write bandwidth with EVEREST, 64MB Cache buffer overcomes 'stuttering' data problem, Extremely low 0.09 ms random access time, Single Layer Cell construction, Lightweight compact storage solution, Resistant to extreme shock impact, Produces little to no additional heat, 3-Year OCZ product warranty with free support forum, Reduced power consumption over HDD counterparts
  • Cons: Limited to 64GB capacity, Metal case is heavier and less durable than plastic, Lacks integrated USB 2.0 Mini-B data connection, Expensive premium-level product

OCZ Agility EX 60GB SSD Review

Hardware Canucks
3 December 2009
  • Conclusion: There is no getting around the fact that the OCZ Agility EX is one hell of a fast drive. So much so that there were very few competitors that could even touch it in most of our benchmarks and it even surpassed some of OCZ ‘s previously high-end drives. It is actually the first drive we have seen that ties the Intel X-25M in our IO Meter torture tests which is definitely saying a lot.
