OCZ Technology has attacked the solid state market head on and is leading the charge. The Agility is the company's base, mainstream product and it is able to outperform some of the competitors' flagship drives. This makes us wonder just how fast the upper tier products from OCZ really are. Being the entry level, the cost of the Agility is quite a bit cheaper than the other drives like the Vertex Turbo, Agility EX and Vertex EX. OCZ releases more firmware updates than any other manufacturer and for the most part they release the updates before anyone else.
The drive we reviewed today, the Agility in 120GB form is currently available from Newegg for under 370 USD. The 60 and 30GB drives are now all the way down to $214.99 and 159.00, very competitive pricing when looking at similar drives in the same category.
The only thing that really hurts the Agility is the fact that the 120GB OCZ Summit costs around 30 Dollars less. The Summit is listed as being part of OCZ's Performance Series of products, but uses the Samsung controller. We have looked at several Samsung controlled drives and to date they have all performed right around the same, but given that OCZ has managed to squeeze just a little more out of all their SSDs we can't very well claim that if you've seen one, you've seen them all.
So, where does that leave us; the Summit or the Agility? - The jury is still out but from past experience I would go with the Summit for RAID due to Samsungs hardware garbage collection and the Agility for single drive use.
