Review: OCZ Agility 4 - 256GB SSD Reviewed by: Wendy Robertson Provided by: OCZ Technology Model: AGT4-25SAT3-256G Firmware version: 1.5


Here at we try to bring you not only in-depth SSD reviews, but also cover products that are affordable. In the second of my series of reviews on budget SSDs, I was lucky enough to get hold of OCZ Technologies latest mainstream SSD, the OCZ Agility 4.

The Agility 4 is available in four capacities, 64GB, 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB, all with slightly varying performance (see the specifications later in this article).

OCZ was kind enough to send me the 256GB version of the Agility 4, and in this review I will be taking a look at the performance and stability of this new SSD.

OCZ Technology company information

OCZ Technology should need no introduction, but for those of you who would like to find out more about OCZ, you can do so at their website.

Now it’s time to take a look at the drive itself and what it came shipped with.


Complete package

The OCZ Agility 4 ships in a snap-open/close plastic package. The packaging is adequate enough to protect the SSD, and is obviously packaged in this way to help keep the costs down.

Inside the box

The package contained the OCZ Agility 4 256GB SSD, and that is basically all you get. There is no 2.5 inch to 3.5 inch converter bracket, although you do get an installation guide, go faster bragging sticker, and warranty information (not shown).

The top of the OCZ Agility 4 case is made from strong plastic.

Drive underside

On the underside of the drive we can see the SATA power and data connectors, and four drive mounting holes. We can also see the drive's model and serial number, and that the drive was manufactured in Taiwan. The bottom of the case is made from strong metal, which also acts as a heat sink for the Everest 2 SSD processor.

Now let's head to the next page, where we look in more detail at the OCZ Agility 4 SSD..... settings
