Back in August we reviewed the OCZ Agility SATA 2.0 SSD, which we found to be a reputable solid-state drive that offered nice performance under Linux. However, a step up from the Agility series is the Agility EX line. The OCZ Agility EX is designed to offer maximum performance with its SLC NAND-based storage and Indilinx controller. How though does the performance of this $400 SSD for just 60GB of storage compare to their other MLC-based SSDs under Linux? We have the benchmarks.

Features:

- 60GB Capacity
- 64MB Onboard Cache
- SLC NAND
- Seek Time Less Than 0.1ms
- 2.5" Slim Design
- 99.8 x 69.63 x 9.3 mm
- 77g Weight
- 0C ~ 70C Operating Temperature
- -45C ~ +85C Storage Temperature
- 2 Watt Power Consumption, 0.5 Watt Idle
- 1500G Shock Resistant
- RAID Support

The OCZ Agility EX 60GB SSD was packaged just like other solid-state drives from OCZ Technology that we have reviewed in the past. The 2.5-inch solid-state drive resided within an ESD bag that was resting amid a Styrofoam tray. Included with the Agility EX was an installation guide and warranty information card. The OCZ Agility EX is based by a three-year warranty and is rated for 1.5 million hours MTBF.
