OCZ is a serious contender in the memory market, it comes as no surprise they have a full line of SSD drives as well.

Meet the OCZ Agility 2

“Based on a cutting-edge new architecture, Agility 2 Solid State Drives deliver unprecedented performance while maintaining an affordable storage solution for early adopters looking to update their systems with the latest technology.”

Solid state drives not only offer an enormous reliability advantage over traditional hard disk drives, they offer great performance increases as well. Most people operate under the assumption it takes great money to get great performance. The Agility 2 claims to be the exception.  Let’s see if the Agility 2 has the moves to keep up with its boasts.

Packaging:

OCZ definately crammed everything in this package quite efficiently looking at the size of the box I was surprised to see anything other than the SSD, they also included the screws and a 3.5″ mounting bracket. these may seem like trivial features but keep in mind this is a “budget friendly” SSD, usually included accessories are the first place a company might try to decrease cost.

  1. I have one of these in the 60GB size. This is the first SSD that for me has high end performance for a price that I can justify. Being retired and on a fixed income makes me be frugal. I’m extremely happy with the performance that this drive delivers. It’s an upgrade for your PC with really noticeable results.
