OCZ Tech Agility Series 120GB SSD - Gaming and Windows Boot Results

User Score:

For the gamers out there, we load up a timedemo of Crysis at minimal detail to get an idea of how this SSD performs at loading levels.

No surprises here. This is the one scenario where a good old (albeit very fast, 10,000rpm Western-Digital VelociRaptor) moving-parts hard drive is still king, and if you can't afford Intel there's little difference between our latest Indilinx SSDs.

Finally we take a look at boot, restart and shutdown times of a clean Windows Vista install on our test system.

This appears to be a slight chink in the Agility's armour, as the only area where it wins is in shutting down the computer - the least important of the three. Mind you, it still solidly trashes both the Raptor and Intel's oddly inconsistently-performing drive, and doesn't fall far behind its other rivals either.

This sector seems to be crying out for a group test of some sort. There are a lot of drives out there.

I would like to see you review something with a Samsung controller, such as Samsungs, or larger drives in the Corsair Extreme series.

Well I'm ordering mine from the US.. That price disparity is just ridiculous!

@xenos You are absolutely right - I thought I was seeing things before. The Intel drives came across at a pretty fair parity, but that made them astronomically better value than the Indilinx drives. I was reading articles like the anandtech "buy intel at 80/160" and "buy indilinx if you need 64/128/256". Only trouble was, at the time, a 80GB Intel X25-M was cheaper than any 64GB Indilinx drive, in fact it was close to price to the 30GB Vertex. Crazy. I took a look at the US pricing and it was much more competitive.

The X25-M has gone up in price (and down in availability) since I bought it, but the disparity is still there, in the UK, the Intel drives seem much better value.

Where can you get this in the US? As usual, the best price vendor does not ship to the UK.
