OCZ Agility 2 60GB Solid State Drive Review

Today we have another SandForce-based solid state drive one the testing block. These new SandForce drives have been flooding the market lately and are bringing incredible speeds with them. Today we will be looking at the 60GB Agility 2 from OCZ; we actually took a look at the original Agility back in October. This 60GB version is part of the extended series which reduces the over provisioning of flash on the drive for more storage capacity. The 60GB size is perfect for anyone looking to get into a solid state drive without dropping a ton of money. Let’s take a look…

Special thanks to OCZ for providing us with the Agility 2 60GB solid state drive to review.

The Agility 2 comes in OCZ’s typical solid state drive packaging, which we have become very accustomed to. On the front there is a picture of the drive along with the capacity listing. On the back there is a little bit of information about the drive and a list of specifications.

Opening the package up the drive is nicely protected inside. Along with the drive inside you will find a mounting bracket, mounting hardware, user’s guide and a cool sticker that says, “My SSD is faster than your HDD”. I really like that OCZ does include the mounting bracket as many cases still do not have mounting systems for 2.5-inch drives.
