2.5" Solid State Drives / SATA III / MLC / Midrange Performance / 60GB-240GB
OCZ Agility 3 SATA III Solid State Drives are designed and built to provide an exceptional balance of performance and value. The Agility 3 Series implements the cutting-edge SATA 6Gbps interface to deliver excellent sequential and random data transfer rates, significantly improving your computing experience over hard drives.
In addition to enhanced performance, an Agility 3 upgrade promotes cooler, quieter, and more energy efficient conditions compared to traditional mechanical hard drives. With no moving parts, SSDs provide peace of mind with their superior durability and reliability. Unique and innovative, Agility 3 SSDs deliver a one-of-a-kind storage solution.
Important SSD notes:
Solid State Drives DO NOT require defragmentation. It may decrease the lifespan of the drive.
Consumers may see a discrepancy between reported capacity and actual capacity; the storage industry standard is to display capacity in decimal. However, the operating system usually calculates capacity in binary format, causing traditional HDD and SSD to show a lower capacity in Windows. In the case of SSDs, some of the capacity is reserved for formatting and redundancy for wear leveling.
Rated speeds may vary slightly depending on the benchmark used, drivers, windows version, bios version and file size. We recommend using ATTO, IOMeter, and PC Mark Vantage for benchmarking SSDs and to achieve maximum rated specifications. Maximum performance is achieved by using the P67 chipset with Native SATA 6Gbps.

After haveing bought the Crucial M4 for my desktop and loving the performance and speed bump it provided, I wanted to replace my laptop's HDD with a SSD. This Agility 3 120GB fitted the bill, as a cheap and affordable, yet fast solution. Although 'slow' by SSD standards, it is still incredibly faster than any 2.5" HDD on the market. If you don't need the storage space, you definitely need an SSD. I have never had any problems with it and have updraded to the latest firmware as they came out.
so far I cant really say anything bad about these drives I purchased 2 of them to setup a raid for my boot and the load speeds are great not having any trouble with them would buy again for sure.
This is the first SSD I have purchased, So I can't compare it with anything else, but from my experience with it so far it is a very good product for the cost. I have very fast boot ups, and load times. After about 3 months of buying my first one I had it fail on me. Computer would not detect the drive. I did get a replacement, and I have not had a problem since. I am currently waiting for my second drive to come in and will be putting it in RAID 0, I will update this after I spend some time with that set up.
I easily installed this with a fresh install of windows 7 and works perfectly for me. Absolutely noticed the speed improvement of installing programs and start up. Totally satisfied so far and definitely would purchase again on sale.
