OCZ Technology Agility 4 256GB Solid State Drive Review

OCZ Technology Agility 4 256GB Solid State Drive Review

For as long as I've been writing about SSDs, two issues are played back about the technology. It costs too much and the capacity is not enough. Your record is broken, throw it out. It's time to put your money where your mouth is. For the last few months high quality SSDs have reached the $1 per GB mark. You really can't ask for more than that. For those of you still holding out, let me tell you about the OCZ Agility 4.

 

OCZ Technology's Agility 4 hit the market at less than $1 per GB. Based on the Indilinx Infused, next generation Marvell SATA III controller and unknown 25nm flash, this SSD is one of the best value drives on the market today for mainstream users. While writing this article Newegg had the 256GB model that we're looking at today for $189.99. That is a very attractive price for a 256GB, SATA III SSD that is capable of over 400MB/s in some benchmarks. Then there are all of the people saying that price just isn't good enough. Well, with coupon code HARDOCPX8X1A you save another 15% which takes off another $28.50 so the price goes down to roughly $161. Did I mention we are talking about a 256GB SSD?

 

I think that takes care of the price issue. Now we have capacity. To take care of your capacity concerns open My Computer, then look at how much data you actually have on your spinner right now. If you are not using 200GB then you can pull that drive and tuck it away for another day. If you are using more than 200GB then that is fine too. On a desktop you can install several drives and give them drive letters. Your current C drive becomes your new D drive when you reinstall Windows on a new SSD. At that point just save your movies, music and photos on the D drive and it will actually keep your new SSD C drive running faster.

 

All is not roses and rainbows with the OCZ Technology Agility 4, though. Even though we would love to tell you to run out and get a really low-cost SSD, we can't. In our testing, the first drive died in testing, around 15 minutes into testing. We see a lot of SSDs and this is not the first SSD we've killed. I don't take offence when I kill a drive because I'm abusing them as soon as the system boots up.
