Average Bench: 46.5% (658th of 850)

Based on 2,164 user benchmarks.  Models: OCZ-AGILITY3, OCZ-AGIL ITY3

The OCZ Agility 3.0 has a relatively weak performance profile to say the least, it is actually one of the worst drives we have seen to date. With a real world score of 275.1 MB/s and an AS-SSD total score of 593 the Agility is the worst performing drive in our group test. To be fair, this is one of the oldest models in our group test and has already been discontinued by OCZ. If this drive halved in price to around £70 we would begin to get interested but at its current market price of £140 it represents very poor value for money. [Feb '12 SSDrivePro]
