OCZ Agility 120GB SSD
Solid State Drives (SSDs) are a very attractive lure, particularly to enthusiasts. Outstanding performance, lightweight, and power frugal are mighty tempting features. But the price of these drives remain high overall. There is a clear trend, however, by manufacturers to offer SSDs that are more "affordable". But consumers don’t want "cheap"; there is a difference. We want our cake, and to eat it too: we want speed and affordability, and we make no excuses for that. And it just so happens that today we have a new SSD that may just give that to us.
OCZ’s Agility is the latest in their solid state drive product lineup, and with it featuring the Indilinx ‘Barefoot’ controller we have no doubt it’ll likely be fast. But the Agility is considerably less expensive than its competitors by using some cheaper memory chips. How significantly will this affect its performance? How does it stack up against other SSDs? Is it worth the money? These are questions consumers want to know, and so do we. Today we’ll put the OCZ Agility against its competitors, as well as its sibling the renowned OCZ Vertex, in order to definitively answer those questions.
