OCZ Agility SSD 120GB review -
On this page 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.
Right, unboxing the product. It's all green man! Packaging + manual + drive is what you get (and all you need of course), Borat -- izzeee naaice.
You can find the model we tested under the product code (SKU) OCZSSD2-1AGT120G and this is the 2.5" SATA II 120GB version. You should easily be able to place it somewhere in your chassis.
And 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 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, which definitely is a requirement as the read performance alone already tops 200 MB/sec easily.
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 a SATA storage device. Mind you -- all the way to your left you can see two pins. That actually is a jumper. Once the jumper is in place you can flash new firmware to the SSD.
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.

The OCZ Agility EX offers top notch performance and reliability, we honestly believe in the theory that the SSD could probably outlive 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.
