Our review today is going to concentrate on OCZs latest release of the OCZ Agility 3 SATA 3 240GB SSD and do somewhat of a comparison between this and other drives to include OCZs own Vertex 3 and Vertex 3 IOPS. The question fresh on everyone’s mind right now is definitely that of why would OCZ market another SSD with the same SandForce 2281 processor and similar configurations after just releasing the Vertex 3 MaxIOPS which was already very similar to the Vertex 3.
Simply put, OCZ is in a position that they believe the best choice for consumers is one where they can find a SSD that specifically suits their needs. The meat and gravy of their concoction is the Vertex 3 which has a ton of success in only two months except for one area where they seem to be having a great deal of difficulty. They simply can’t keep them in stock. Their last entry was the Vertex 3 MaxIOPs and is geared towerds users that require greater transactional throughput, which, in human terms, means that these might those looking for server use but not quite being at that full fledge enterprise level.
