OCZ Agility 3

Recommended Posts

Hey,

I just ordered OCZ Agility 3 for a friend of mine (60GB): Newegg.com - OCZ Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-60G 2.5" 60GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

I'll have some time with it, so if you have any requests of any bench let me know.

See here for results: http://forum.techinferno.com/storage/888-ocz-agility-3-a-2.html#post10647

(Haven't figured out how to relink the images here.)

AS-SSD results would be good to have, but as a warning it will write lots of data to your SSD... hope your friend is ok with that :)

He told me to make sure the disk is working. I'm delivering it to him in Europe. :) I was thinking of tossing it into my M17x and putting an image of my C drive, but I don't think it will fit on 60GB. :P:D I can install Linux (Mint) or something and report with some real-world tests.

Yeah cloning is not a good idea, better with a clean installation (either Windows or Linux). The real-world performance tests are kinda hard to perform cause it's hard to measure time accurately, synthetics are a different story since some of them favor some SSDs and other synthetics other SSDs.... I bet you will end up doing everything :D

My (well, my friends') SSD shipped yesterday too. I'll see if I can hook it up through the HD bay on the dock station. For some reason the regular hard drive I just put there occassionaly gives me BSOD during boot.

Hm no idea, I'll check it out. I forgot that thing even exists.... I used SSDs everywhere so don't care about these things. :)

OCZ Agility 3: AS SSD Benchmark, Crystal Disk Mark (All 0 fill), with the disk in my dock station

and here's a comparison to my boot disk, Mushkin Callisto 60GB, with older SandForce1200, AS SSD benchmark:

Note: Agility 3 only reaches high sequential speeds on SATA 6Gb/s which I don't have on either of my computers.

EDIT: Updated the first post.

Hello, I have this drive installed for about one year now as secondary boot device on my m18x, loaded win7 and win8 on it with no issues, works great.

I have this in my desktop, bought already with the latest firmware 2.22, no issues at all! Great performance/price!

My employer bought about $100k of these last year for a SAN, at least 20% of them have already failed.

I purchased one of these bad boys some time ago for my desktop, I remember it being quite the pretty penny for a 90GB back when I got it but it'd been blazing fast ever since I've got it. Just take care of it and don't cause it any unnecessary work and it'll last you.

I got one of these back in the FW2.22 era and I don't have reliability issues either. I still think these late model Sandforce drives are a great value.

I bought 2 of these, one as a boot drive for my desktop and 1 for my hackintosh. No problems with either of them. Great value and exceptional performance, sorry to hear some people may have got a bad batch.

How are these SSD? I am looking to buy a SSD and would like to know your opinion on OCZ as I've read many mixed reviews.
