It is nice to see OCZ trying to get more solid state drives out there to the mainstream. By using different NAND chips on the Agility they are able to make it more affordable for consumers. There really is not a huge speed difference between the Agility and Vertex series drives. They are basically the same drive except for the NAND chips. So if you are looking to save a few dollars go with the Agility drive. You are still going to see a tremendous difference if you are going from a regular SATA drive to a SSD drive.
Right now OCZ is only offering this drive in 30GB, 60GB, and 120GB versions. I really hope a 250GB version comes out soon! The 60GB version, which we reviewed, can be found only for around $199, which is about $30 cheaper than the Vertex.
Honestly I could not find a single thing wrong with the Agility drive and for OCZ to make it affordable for consumers makes it even better! Overall ThinkComputers gives the OCZ Agility 60GB Solid State Drive a 10 out of 10 score and our Recommended Award!
- Performs as advertised
- Aggressively priced
