OCZ Agility2 60GB SSD review

2. A closer look

The OCZ Agility 2 60GB SSD retails for about $169 (after $10 mail-in rebate). Judging from this price, we could expect to see a decent performance from the drive.

The product is backed by a good three-year warranty but we would be a little be happier with a more generous one.

The package includes the OCZ Agility 2 60GB SSD, a manual with quick installation tips, a OCZ's "My SSD Is Faster Than Your HDD" sticker and a 3.5" bracket for installing the drive at a desktop PC. We couldn't ask for anything more:

The drive is very light at about 77grams and has the typical dimensions of a 2.5" SSD. As happens with all SATA I/II compatible drives, the usual connectors are found at the drive's bottom side:

The Agility 2 uses Intel flash chips fabricated with 34-nm process technology. As we previously mentioned, the drive is also based on the SF-1200controller, which comes with impressive specs: 260MB/s for sequential reads and writes, 30,000 IOps for 4KB random reads, and 10,000 IOps for random writes. SandForce claims that the DuraWrite technology extends the life of the SSD over conventional controllers, by optimizing writes to the flash memory and delivering a write amplification below 1, without DRAM caching requirements.
