There's also the proprietary NDurance 2.0 technology which increases the lifespan of the NAND flash memory by as much as two times. It is cover by a 3-year warranty.

While not the fastest SSD to come through the 'Labs, OCZ's Agility 4 delivers a lot of bang for your buck. Powered by the same Indilinx infused Everest 2 controller as the Vertex 4, the drive uses asynchronous MLC NAND to deliver a fast, responsive...

After taking a look at all of our benchmarks we have come to a couple conclusions. First, if we had to pick I would jump all over the Vertex 4 still. The Agility 4 is a great drive that really outperformed a lot of the competition in most situations,...

In June, 2012 we published a large group test of SSDs with capacities of 120/128 GB and 240/256 GB . Those are still the most popular sizes, judging from what people search for on Hardware.Info. The world of SSDs didn't stand still, and since then a...

The performance numbers (for the price) we saw in the new OCZ Agility 4 are one of the reasons they remain at the top of the solid state drive business. The performance is there dues to a few different advancements in technology. The first and most...

NAND prices are volatile, so SSD prices fluctuate constantly. I suggest looking at the current prices before reading the rest of this review. Currently, the lowest price I have found for the Agility 4 256GB is at $179.99 at NCIX' US store. I could find...

Just because some things are equivalent, does not mean they are the same. In the same way no one refers to "8 Mile Road" as "12.8748 Kilometer Road", or say "Give them 2.54 cm and they will take it 1.609 km" instead of "Give them an inch and they will...

Before we get too far into this conclusion, some mention has to be made about OCZ’s current market situation. While the last few weeks have been turbulent for this once surging company, an aggressive restructuring has been put in place in order to...

Alright, so concluding thoughts. Performance wise, don't expect much out of the Agility 4. The Agility 3 wasn't exactly the top performing SSD, but the Agility 3 did have the advantage of a SandForce controller, which helped boost performance when...

The Agility 4 from OCZ has its low price as the main selling point. About £160 for a 256 GB SSD is very competitive, but OCZ isn't the only manufacturer of solid state drives that wants a piece of the pie. The Crucial m4 and Samsung 830 cost about the...

For the last few years, OCZ's consumer SSD lineup has primarily consisted of two models: Vertex and Agility. The history of these two goes all the way back to 2009 when OCZ realized that they can differentiate their SSDs by equipping them with...

As an everyday drive the Agility 4 feels much faster than a traditional drive and gives back those things that stick out most; faster boot times and improved access to data at a great price for the capacity.

OCZ has positioned their Agility 4 as a mid-range solid-state drive which is built around the company's Indilinx controller. In our testing we see decent performance, that, when averaged over all our tests, can claim a solid place in our rankings.

In the introduction of this article I talked about the two major complaints that seem to stick to solid state drives - price and capacity. There is another one and this one brings fear with it - reliability. There has yet to be a single company that...
