“The OCZ Agility series SSD is an accumulation of all the latest breakthroughs in SSD technology, including controller design, spiffy read/write speeds, and 64MB of onboard cache, yet with this series, it is available at a somewhat better price. See, by doing so OCZ shaves another 20 to 25% off the sales price.
We certainly were impressed by OCZ’s Agility for sure, blazing speeds, stunning access times and a nice cache making the SSD very suitable for any operating system.”

You can thank Intel for the sudden drop in SSD prices as their second generation X25 series has forced the competition to drop prices or suffer. A perfect example is the OCZ Agility SSD 120GB, which will run you $300. On paper it reads up to 230 MB/s writes at 135 MB/s and sustained writes of 80 MB/s. The Guru of 3D tests those claims in their new review, so head on over and see how this drive stacks up and if it really is a great deal.
