OCZ Agility 2 60GB review

Low cost Sandforce SSD for the win?

OCZ agility 2 60gb

We pitted the Agility 2 against OCZ's other Sandforce powered option, the Vertex 2, as well as an older but similarly sized model from Kingston's V+ series.

The ATTO scores give us throughput for large sequential read and write tests, while AS SSD looks at a broader spectrum of random data access and the drive's behaviour in the most common and challenging scenario, handling many small chunks simultaneously.

The notable score here is the incredible 4K random write speeds of this second tier drive.
