Back in May we reviewed the OCZ Vertex SSD, which performed well against a Super Talent SSD and two different rotating mobile HDDs. This OCZ SSD was not exactly cheap but it was not too expensive either and it ended up receiving our Editor's Choice award. Since then, OCZ Technology has introduced the Agility SATA 2.0 Solid-State Drives. The Agility is designed to fill OCZ's mainstream SSD offerings with models up to 120GB in size, MLC flash memory, 64MB cache, and slightly better prices. In this review we are testing out the OCZ Agility 120GB Serial ATA 2.0 SSD, under Ubuntu Linux, of course.

- 1500G Shock Resistant
- RAID Support
- 1.5 Million Hours MTBF
The OCZ Agility 120GB arrived in a smaller container than the Vertex SSD but was still sized appropriately for a 2.5" SSD. The OCZ packaging made mention of the faster SATA 2.0 access times, the slim design, low power consumption, shock resistant, and RAID support. The Agility SSD included an installation guide and then arriving in a smaller box was the 2.5" SSD encased within an anti-static bag with a cardboard cutout precisely for a snug fit. OCZ backs these SSDs with a two-year warranty.
