OCZ Agility EX SSD 60GB review -
On the next few pages we'll show you some photos. The images were taken at high-resolution and then cropped and scaled down. The camera used was a Canon 450D 12 MegaPixel.
You can find the model we tested under the product code (SKU) OCZSSD2-1AGTEX60G and this is the 2.5" SATA II 60GB version. You should easily be able to place it somewhere in your chassis.
And though the photo would make you think otherwise, of course, it's a perfect fit for laptops. This SSD would bring a whole lot of performance onto that laptop alright, all at low power consumption at 2 Watt and virtually no heat.
Slim and light-weight, 9.5mm tall, it's the standard for notebook drives. When we look at the connectors, we spot the standard power and SATA connector, this drive is SATA2 compatible.
To your left you can see two pins, this is a jumper which needs to be enabled if you like to flash new firmware into the SSD. Though the latest Firmware's don't even require you to do this,
Installation wise it's the same as a traditional HDD. Pop it in, connect it, bind it, format it and you are good to go at horribly fast speeds. It uses the same connectors as an SATA storage device. Last photo, the packaging.
OCZ is about to inject an SSD into the market that is labeled Agility 3 SSD. What's the difference in-between Agility 2 and now 3 you might ask ? Well, two primary things really, controller and NAND flash memory type. Labeled with advertised speeds of of 525 MB/sec with write speeds of 500 MB/sec this product should be really interesting for many of you.

OCZ Agility SSD 120GB review
The OCZ Agility series SSD is an accumulation of all the latest breakthroughs in SSD technology, including controller design, spiffy read/write speeds, and 64MB of onboard cache, yet with this series, at a somewhat better price. See, by doing so OCZ shaves another 20 to 25% off the sales price.
