Conclusion: The OCZ Agility 2 60GB SSD can be found on the market for around $140 and for even less when found on sale and through manufacture mail-in-rebate. It comes with a 3-year warranty and offers an attractive total package. If you're in the market for an SSD or a general upgrade, the single component that will offer you the most performance increase is an SSD, and the Agility 2 will not disappoint.
Summary: While some may argue that the availability of very inexpensive storage in the form of traditional hard drives may be a deterrent from the meager amount of storage that an SSD provides for the cost. That space comes at the great sacrifice of reliability. Because solid state drives have no moving parts the chances of failure are negligible.
Summary: As I mentioned in the introduction to this review, it seems that as SSDs become more and more popular, we find that nearly every memory, flash or other storage manufacturer is getting into the game. OCZ, Mushkin, Kingston, Crucial, G.Skill, Corsair, Patriot and Western Digital all make solid state drives, and most also offer several models featuring different brands of controllers from JMicron, Indilinx, SandForce and Marvell.
Summary: Final Thoughts
OCZ is always one of my top picks when it comes to solid state drives and the Agility 2 proves that! It received some of the highest scores we have received for a SandForce-based solid state drive. The 285MB/s read and 273MB/s write we received in ATTO is pretty much spot on with the advertised 285MB/s read and 275MB/s write speeds. Also the Agility 2 scored the highest read and write scores for a SandForce-based drive in HDTune!
Pros: – 285MB/s read and 273MB/s write in ATTO, – Scored the highest out of all SandForcebased drives in HDTune, – Available in capacities up to 480GB, – 3year warranty, – Included mounting bracket
The OCZ Agility 2 SSD is a fantastic update to your computer for your main applications and operating system. The SSD makes the machine feel much faster and improves performance while reducing the time you spend waiting to work. I highly recommend the OCZ Agility 2 SSD.
Pros: Huge improvement in application load time, Much faster boot time
Cons: 60GB is too small for the only drive in most systems
Conclusion: The performance numbers speak for themselves really, this SSD outperforms the regular 2.5” hard drive easily. The read speeds for the drive are outstanding, with the write speeds leaving a little to be desired, but still overall the Agility Series 60gb SSD is a great drive.
Pros: Excellent speeds overall, Nicely made, Super fast read speeds
Excerpt: 1 Flares 1 Flares × SSD drives haven’t quite reached ‘mainstream’ yet, however as more enthusiast users are realising the performance benefits, sales figures are increasing and the adoption rate is improving.
Conclusion: Esperábamos un mayor rendimiento con respecto al anterior modelo La unidad OCZ Agility 2 100GB es una excelente si andamos tras una unidad SSD con controlador SandForce SF-1200, sobre todo teniendo en cuenta la capacidad de almacenaje. OCZ ofrece su unidad en tamaños de 40 GB hasta 480 GB, eso si, los márgenes dejarán más o menos vacía nuestra cartera.
Pros: Performance muy simétrico, Controlador, Bracket 3,5" incluido, Soporta TRIM, Precio razonable, Buena velocidad de escritura-lectura, Tiempo de acceso insignificante
Cons: Esperábamos un mayor rendimiento con respecto al anterior modelo
