Conclusion: IMPORTANT: Although the rating and final score mentioned in this conclusion are made to be as objective as possible, please be advised that every author perceives these factors differently at various points in time. While we each do our best to ensure that all aspects of the product are considered, there are often times unforeseen market conditions and manufacturer changes which occur after publication that could render our rating obsolete.
Summary: I would describe the OCZ Agility 3 as the typical mid-range SATA 6 Gbps SSD. It offers a decent 10% performance upgrade over "old" Sandforce based drives which support only the 3 Gbps interface. Compared to the more expensive Vertex 3 Series, we see a performance reduction of 10% again. Since the Vertex 3 costs over 10% more, the Agility 3 offers slightly better price/performance, too.
Pros: Good performance, SATA 6 Gbps support, Supports TRIM, 3 year warranty, Nice looking, rugged metal case, 3.5" adapter included
Cons: Only 10% faster than 3 Gbps SSDs, Needs SATA 6 Gbps controller to perform best, Can not win price/performance
Summary: Final Thoughts
Just like in the case of previous versions, the Agility 3 is the little brother to the
. While both drives use the same controller the Agility 3 uses “cheaper” 25nm NAND chips. This chips are less expensive to produce and are not as powerful as the ones that are in the Vertex 3.
Pros: Great performance, Price compared to the Vertex 3, 3 year warranty
Excerpt: This month we have seen the release of a handful of ultra fast Solid State Drives, and Kitguru has been on hand to review them in recent weeks. Today we are looking at the latest drive from market leader OCZ, the Agility 3 240GB. The Agility 3 has been released to compliment their recent Vertex 3 and Vertex 3 MAX IOPS drives, offering high performance but at a reduced price point.
Summary: Districarsi nella scelta di un SSD non è mai un compito facile: il controller, l'interfaccia di collegamento, il modello delle celle di memoria utilizzate, così come la capacità ed il costo, sono fattori molto importanti da tenere in considerazione durante l'acquisto.
OCZ, per ovviare a questi problemi, ha inserito a catalogo un'ampia serie di prodotti che permettono di coprire ogni esigenza, da quella mainstream a quella professionale di alto livello.
