Very Good

Rating: 9.12/10

Review Date: 01/23/13
Cons: n/a

Pros: SSDPriceSize
Great ssd for price and size. Got this for an upgrade from a HDD on non-gaming rig. despite being older generation then current ssd's, this still does the trick and I think most uses would not notice a difference.

Review Date: 01/19/13
Cons: none I had ocz power and ram for very long time, I never had any issue with them.

Pros: Runs really fast, no hiccups. Good price at 120 dollars.
I had this for a month... I see a significant boot speed (~20 sec) and extremely fast program installing speed.

Review Date: 01/17/13
Cons: none

Pros: realy fast240gb
nice ocz ssd 240gb for 120$ , realy fast , doing a nice job

Review Date: 01/14/13
Cons: No cons :-)

Pros: Great valueEnough capacity for an SSD
I highly recommend this SSD.It really upgraded my Windows 7 experience compared to my old WD 1TB hard drive. I use it to run a few web servers and a NAS in VMWare and it runs way much faster than before.Even tough i'm in SATA2, the performance is pretty awesome. The startup time is about 15 seconds and shutdown time is around 10 seconds.

Review Date: 01/10/13
Cons: It's a Sandforce controller, so incompressible data transfers suffer. Mediocre case on the SSD itself.

Pros: Price was unbeatable, Drive is very fast and a huge improvement in my notebook over a spinning drive. Benchmarks at about 260MB/s in Sandra, which is much faster than my 120GB Force 3
I a kicking myself for not buying more than one at the sale price, and from what I understand Agility isn't known for it's reliability, but thus far it's survived my brutal barrage of benchmarking and gaming so I'd recommend it to a friend.

Review Date: 01/07/13
Cons: None

Pros: Fast, easy install
Installation was quite easy enough. No directions in box though for installation/setup, had to figure it out on my own. Was able to update  firmware with a little help from OCZ support forums. Much faster than my HDD I was using before. I cloned my Windows installation from my HDD so I had to do some setup of the drive beforehand to align sectors and have proper partition size. Would definitely recommend this as a main drive, not for storage (that's a bit overkill).

Review Date: 10/28/12
Cons: N/A

Pros: - Lightning fast- As with all SSDs: small, lightweight, silent- Controller seems ok after moderate use
Very fast and is running without issue as a secondary drive for holding my games. Boosted performance by a significant amount. Highly recommended.

Review Date: 09/04/12
Cons: none I can think of

Pros: small, quick SSD
It's an SSD. Have mine partitioned into 2 partitions and it runs well. OS starts up to a usable state in about 15 seconds without any start-up tweaks. No reliability problems as of yet.

Review Date: 08/18/12
Cons: Aucun problème

Pros: Stable et rapide
Je le recommande,maintenant ils sont plus accèssible pour le prix

Review Date: 07/29/12
Cons: eh sata 2 ports so wont run as fast GEEGEE

overall a good boss product... ~THEBANK

Review Date: 07/14/12
Cons: Doesn't come with mounting brackets. I just used velcro and mounted it to the inside of the case.

Pros: Quiet, lightning fast, light weight and generates virtually no heat.
I bought this because my regular sata2 platter based hard drive was simply generating too much noise and was too slow. I'm so glad I did because not only does it produce NO SOUND, it performs at least 10X faster. I installed Windows 7 Pro on it, What use to take 4-5 minutes to boot up to an idle desktop now only takes 20-30 seconds. You need to make sure your motherboard is ACHI capable otherwise you won't realize the full performance of an SSD. Be sure to set the SSD to this format before you install anything to it. Follow the MB and SSD manual instructions on how this is done. I found it very straight forward.If you want a significant performance increase in your system, don't by a new CPU just pickup one of these. It's the best investment I made for my PC yet.

Review Date: 07/10/12
Cons: frequent crashes make it unusable as a boot drive

Pros: approx 300 mB/sec read/write when working
I have installed this with a new Gigabyte motherboard and it is completely unstable. It will boot (I installed a new clean version of Windows 7 on it) run for a few hours and then apparently just "disappear" as the system freezes and upon restart the BIOS may or may not show it. A power down may help to bring it back to recognition. I am going to try some firmware and BIOS updates I think but I think people should be warned about the instablility of this product.

Review Date: 07/07/12
Cons: SSD still subject to catastrophic failure

Pros: Fast, big enough for many people
Drive died after 3 months of occasional use (not even recognized by BIOS). OCZ replacement proceedure seems straight-forward. Contact OCZ in Canada for a RMA, fill out forms, then mail them the dead drive.It is worth remembering that although there are no moving parts, SSDs are still subject to failure. If that failure is in the controller, the drive is dead. Automatic backups onto a mechanical hard drive in the same computer case saved the day in this case.

Review Date: 06/19/12
Cons: sous windows 7

Pros: agt3-25sat3-240g
it's make fast open windows 7, it's work very fats it's incredibleNouvellement installé dans mon pc ça travaille très rapidement sans aucune attente comparativement au disque dur convationnelle

Review Date: 05/30/12
Cons: - SSDs are difficult to maintain. There are many things to watch out for to maximize the life of an SSD. I suggest everyone to do extensive research before purchasing.

Pros: - SSDs are much faster than HDD- OCZ is cheaper than the rest- 240GB is enough space to put everything you need. (OS, applications, games, etc.) Though, storage of files should be placed on an HDD.
Great product for the price. I would recommend this (as well as the Vertex Series).

Review Date: 05/18/12
Cons: Not as fast as some of the other drives out there when hooked up to Sata III. Doesn't come with a 2.5" to 3.5" drive adapter like it's big brother, the vertes 3 series.

Pros: VERY fast compared to a HDD, Great price to size ratio as of May 2012, Fantastic power savings in a laptop vs magnetic hdd
Last year I upgraded my laptop from a 500GB magnetic drive to the 120GB OCZ Agility 3 SSD and absolultely loved it. Except for one thing: storage space! I was always running out of room on my drive, and with this being a 12" very portable laptop, I didn't have many options. I actually started keeping a 32GB SDHC card in all the time just for extra space.So that lead me to constantly be drooling over larger SSD's. And 2 weeks ago the magic happened....I could get the 240GB version of my same SSD for uner $200. So I jumped on it and couldn't be happier.What's so great?The notebook is only Sata II, so this drive totally maxes out the connection. Boot time went from 2 minutes (literally) to about 20 seconds in windows. Ubuntu 12.04 goes from me pressing power to firefox being usable in TEN SECONDS (again, LITERALLY).Some people complain this drive is prone to errors and bad quality. I am NOT one of those people. I currently own the 60GB Agility 3, which is in a netbook, the 120GB, which was in my laptop for the past year, and now the 240GB, which is replaced the 120GB in my laptop.I will say this though. I also bought a vertex 3 for my desktop a year ago, and I ran tests of the 60GB and 120GB Agility 3 against the Vertex 3 while hooked up to a P67 Intel native Sata III controller. While both drive families were incredibly fast, the Vertex 3 was considerably faster in benchmarks. However, that's only in benchmarks. When it came to actually doing every day tasks including playing games, I really didn't see any difference between the 2 drives.And a quick quibble. Last year the OCZ drives came with a 2.5 to 3.5 adapter. This year they didn't.

Review Date: 05/17/12
Cons: bad rma

Review Date: 04/19/12
Cons: No Bracket Included (No Biggie). Firmware update  MUST be done when drive is not set as main drive.

Pros: Price On Sale, Decent Speeds. Windows Flies!
As advertised from other users this drive offers over slightly average speeds. I'm attaining Sequential Writes over 248MB/s on an AMD Phenom 960- 8Gig's Ram- Asus M5A88-M Sata 6GB's motherboard setup so not bad at all. All in all the drive is great...got it on sale which was nice however I also update d the firmware before installing windows which was highly recommended. Also, you can't update  firmware when this drive is set as the main drive so you have to install it into a separate system as a spare drive OR run Linux off a boot CD. I'm never going back to a platter drive for my main drive now.

Review Date: 04/06/12
Cons: None

Pros: Great boot driveGreat price.
Works great as a boot drive. Before I got this it would take about a minute and a half for me to get into windows. It now takes about 20 seconds or so.

Review Date: 03/24/12
Cons: Had to RMA first drive received

Pros: Very fast, great price, fast even in SATA II
I'm running this drive in my Thinkpad T510 laptop (SATAII) and am getting read/write speeds of 212MB/s and 231 MB/s, this is very good for sata 2. The random reads and writes are also very high, beating the absolute snot out of my SATA III Raid0 array of Kingston V100 SSD drives in my desktop.Highly recommended.

Review Date: 03/20/12
Cons: None to date

Pros: Quality/price ratio
Upgraded my Core i5 MB Pro with this HD (HD replacement) and everything worked like a charm. No issues with physical installation and the reboot was error-less with carbon copy.Do need Lion upgrade to speed things up I noted.Very satisfied.

Review Date: 03/12/12
Cons: Async NANDCrappy plastic top of the caseOCZ Support's lousy reputation

Pros: Price (~1$/GB)Sandforce controller
Great price for the sandforce controller. Have heard many complaints about OCZ firmwares and their support, so only time will tell if this becomes a bad purchase.
