5 September 2012
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!
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

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.
