OCZ Agility 120GB SSD

2. Package

The OCZ Agility 120GB SSD (OCZSSD2-1AGT120G) costs ~ $329. This means that you are paying $2.74 per gigabyte, which isn't that low if you ask me. Compared with OCZ's Vertex series, the Agility series is cheaper ($385 and $355 after rebate), giving a better price/storage ratio (2.74 vs 2.95). On the other hand, the Vertex series is backed by a 3-year warranty.

The design of the package hasn't changed much compared to the previous OCZ SSD products. The Agility series come in a green/black package and many logos and information about the features of the SSD drive:

The product is carefully placed into a hard plastic foam shell and a typical anti static bag.

The weight of the 2.5" drive is just 77grams.

The available SATA I/II interface and power connectors are typically placed at the bottom side of the drive, allowing it to easily mount it in your laptop or desktop PC. At the right side you will also find some extra pins used in many SSD models for firmware upgrades. OCZ hasn't included any jumpers for this purpose, but you can easily use the one from your HDD or ODD product:

Although we did not open the drive's case, the drive's specifications indicate that this product is using an Indilinx Barefoot controller with a 64MB cache memory by Elpida. The specific controller has been proved to be quite fast, according to the tests we have done with other SSD's..

In the following pages we will put the Agility 120GB SSD side-by-side with its older brother, the Vertex series of SSD's..
