With new SSDs coming out every week, its a little had to measure their true value. Just spent $600 on the fastest drive on the market? A new one with double the read/write speeds is being released tomorrow! Of course, we're exaggerating but in the volatile solid state disk scene, our make believe scenario is not that far off. With that said, companies are lowering prices while increasing performance so we are obviously headed in the right direction.
One company that stands out in all of this madness is OCZ. If you pay attention to hardware news at all, you already know how aggressive they have been since the launch of SSD technology. Similar to their memory line up, OCZ is determined to fill every SSD price point with a competitive product that meet consumer demand. Today, we have the OCZ Agility Series SSD on hand and it sports a 120GB capacity, read speeds up to 230MB/s, write performance up to 135MB/s, and 64MB of onboard cache. Let's check out how well the Agility Series performs on the test bench and figure out if this is the SSD you've been looking for.
