Which OCZ Agility 3 SSD is Right for You?
The SSD Advantage
Whether you're refreshing an older laptop or trying to maximize the potential of the latest platform, SSDs provide substantial benefits over traditional hard drives.
Solid State Drives feature a non-mechanical design of NAND flash mounted to circuit boards, shock resistant up to 1500g. Hard disk drives consist of various moving parts making them susceptible to shock and damage.
SSDs have 100 times greater throughput and instantaneous access times for quicker boot-ups, faster file transfers, and overall snappier performance than hard drives. HDDs can only access the data faster the closer it is from the read/ write heads, while all parts of the SSD can be accessed at once.
Less Power Consumption, Silent Operation, and Lightweight
SSDs use significantly less wattage at peak load than hard disk drives--less than 2W versus 6W for an HDD--delivering longer battery life in notebooks, less power strain on system, and a cooler computing environment. With no moving parts, SSDs run virtually silent in your notebook or PC case to eliminate distracting noises during gaming or entertainment. And SSDs won't weigh down your laptop, netbook, or tablet PC when you're on the go.
Customer Reviews of OCZ Agility 3 240GB 2.5" SATA III Solid State Drive (SSD)
Does not get hot and the operation is quiet.
Not Vertex, still fantastic5/21/2012
The line of OCZ SSD is very strict: though sharing the same controller, Vertex has been better almost in all aspects in terms of performance than its younger brother Agility, but the difference is not as large as the price: Agility has been a value choice for people wanting to experience 95% of the performance of the Vertex. 240GB is sufficient for OS, softwares and games for enthuist users like me. Save some money and get Agility, it won't let you down
This is a nice SSD, once it is working properly. To get the point of proper operation was a huge headache. I purchased this device because of its price. For the size and speed of this disk, it is the best priced unit on the market. When I purchased the drive, I knew that there was a firmware/freezing/BSOD issue. Because I'm above average when it comes to technology, I figured I would be able to overcome these hurdles with relative ease. I was wrong. It took a ton of learning, reading, and frustration to get this unit functioning -- and even now, it is not 100%. The 20 or 30 dollars you may save with this device is not worth it, in my opinion. In an effort to save all of you some hassle though, here's what worked for me:
