OCZ Solid 2 SSD
With 12 Dbench clients the three OCZ solid-state drives performed more closely to one another, while the Agility EX still came out on top followed by the Solid 2.
For a second time, the Solid 2 came out ahead of the Agility EX. This time around it was with the FS-Mark test using 1,000 files of 1MB size where the Solid 2 could handle double the number of files per second as the Agility and Agility EX.
With PostMark the EXT4 file-system performance across the three SATA solid-state drives was close, but the Solid 2 actually came out slightly ahead.
The OCZ Solid 2 64GB SSD performed very well in our testing and we are certainly pleased with its performance -- it's faster than the OCZ Agility and in select disk tests, even the higher-end Agility EX. The OCZ Solid 2 64GB SSD (OCZSSD2-2SLD60G) is currently priced around $160 USD and is available from NewEgg and Amazon. This sub-$200 price for a 64GB solid-state drive is modest and after seeing how well it performs we very pleased with the product and would have no hesitation recommending this OCZ SSD if looking for a value-oriented solid-state drive.
