OCZ Agility 4 256 SSD Review – 57p per GB!

Review Score:
18 Flares 18 Flares ×

If you are in the market for a competitively priced high capacity Solid State drive, then today’s product will be particularly interesting. It wasn’t so long ago that we were waiting for Solid State pricing to crack the £1 per GB barrier.

The Agility 4 is a value oriented SSD, and the 256GB model we are reviewing today tips the scales at 57p per GB via ARIA. That’s an incredible price point, but is it fast enough to offer a viable solution for the demanding enthusiast audience?

I was impressed with OCZ’s Vertex 4 when I reviewed the 512GB model back in April. I was actually that taken with the unit that I reviewed the 128GB with the firmware 1.4 update again in June. The Agility is the value based unit which uses different, lower cost asynchronous NAND flash memory.

Agility 4 Overview:

  • SATA 6Gbps Interface
  • Best-in-Class Indilinx Controller Technology
  • Up to 85,000 Random 4K Write IOPS
  • Available in 64GB to 512GB Capacities
  • Access Latency as Low as 0.02ms
  • Strong performance at Lower Queue Depths
  • TRIM Support

    thats a great deal, I still use a small crucial drive for boot, but its too small and I need an upgrade. the 128gB version of this would be ideal, but I would assume its slower?

    How are ARIA managing that price, its £30 less than a few other bigger stores in the UK?
