OCZ Agility 4 256GB Solid State Drive

  • Conclusion: As I have mentioned in my OCZ Vertex 4 256GB review, not every test in our battery of benchmarks reflects the true performance of Indilinx Everest 2 based drives. While SandForce SSDs are extremely proficient at handling compressible data and winning drag races in many tests, OCZ's own controller shines through in dealing with non-compressible information, in conjunction with the ability to pull higher I/O operations per second.

  • Excerpt: Today, we have one of their latest drives on hand which is the Agility 4. The Agility is the second edition of an Indilinx controller after being purchased by OCZ. The controller is now called Everest or Everest 2 in case of the Agility. This is an attempt to bring reliable speed and performance to the masses but at a fair price.

  • Conclusion: TRIM Performance: While SSD's offer many benefits, there are some downsides to using flash memory. One of the biggest issues people run into is performance degradation. Over time, an SSD will run out of fresh blocks and will have to write over data the file system has marked as deleted. This procedure is very complicated and can slow an SSD's write speeds considerably. To fix this problem, most manufacturers have added TRIM support to their SSDs.
  • Pros: Available in 64GB, 128GB, 256GB and 512GB capacities, Good random read and write performance, Performs equally well with compressible and incompressible data, Indilinx Ndurance 2.0 technology extends life of NAND flash, SATA 6Gb/s interface, Large DRAM cache, Supports TRIM, dynamic and static wear-leveling and background garbage collection, Automatic 256-bit AES encryption, 3 year warranty, Reasonably priced
  • Cons: Slower sequential read and write speeds than other drives in its class, Does not include a 2.5" to 3.5" adapter bracket, Asynchronous NAND flash

OCZ Agility 4 256GB Solid State Drive Review

  • Summary: Final Thoughts When a product gets released it is never perfect, even though it goes through many different types of tests and procedures there are always things that can be improved or simply looked over.  This is why you see software or firmware updates for many products.  Or even at times products are recalled.  Products are often rushed out to meet demand or to jump on an opportunity in the marketplace.
  • Pros: Price, 3 year warranty, TRIM support
  • Cons: Poor performance compared to other SATA 6GB/s drives, Single request speed is very low, No drive adapter or mounting hardware included

OCZ Agility 4 Solid State Drives: 128 GB and 256 GB Models Reviewed

13 August 2012
  • Summary: Solid state drives from OCZ Vertex 4 family have been continuously praised, but their price is still far from affordable. However, OCZ also has a less expensive product in their lineup using the same design, but built with asynchronous flash memory. This is Agility 4 family. Is this one just as attractive as the Vertex 4? Let’s find out!

OCZ Agility 4 256 GB

13 August 2012
  • Summary: OCZ has positioned their Agility 4 as a mid-range solid-state drive which is built around the company's Indilinx controller. In our testing we see decent performance, that, when averaged over all our tests, can claim a solid place in our rankings. When looking at individual tests we see performance ranging from very good to poor. It seems that the Agility 4 really likes certain workloads, but doesn't do so well with other ones.
  • Pros: Low price per GB, SATA 6 Gbps support, Supports TRIM, 3-year warranty
  • Cons: Performance lower than expected, Warranty could be longer, No 3.5" adapter included, Needs a SATA 6 Gbps controller to perform best

  • Excerpt: For as long as I've been writing about SSDs, two issues are played back about the technology. It costs too much and the capacity is not enough. Your record is broken, throw it out. It's time to put your money where your mouth is. For the last few months high quality SSDs have reached the $1 per GB mark. You really can't ask for more than that. For those of you still holding out, let me tell you about the OCZ Agility 4.
