      Pricey
    The OCZ Agility 3 120GB Series is a Solid State Drive (SSD) that has Multi-Level Cell (MLC) NAND flash memory technology that allocates a storage for more bits of info and is expected to have a life expectancy of two million hours Meat Time Before Failure (MTBF). Although it is advertised as having a speed of 500MB/second, it is actually around 200MB/second. With this SSD, installation is like a breeze. It takes just 30 minutes to complete it. Unfortunately, there are still others that complain about the installation process due to the fact that they don’t have the technical know-how. Less techie guys need instructional manuals or technical assistance in order to make this gadget work really well. Anyway, after installation, everything you click instantly appears right before you eyes. Windows 7 boots up at around 20 seconds. Everything you install on it when clicked twice will come into view right away. Gone are those days when you have to wait even for a while. Files that need to be transferred to and from an external device are affected by the other HDD’s speed but it is till three times faster than before without this OCZ Agility 3. Any game or movie that has to be copied, cut or pasted is at least 5 times faster than before. However we experienced numerous BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) on the second day. Maybe our test unit had a manufacturing defect. so we tried other units to no avail. Other units were found to be unstable and unreliable as well, which probably explains the low price. On the other hand when the SSD works, it works really well. It is completely quiet and cool. All in all, the OCZ Agility 3 120GB seems true to its advertisements. It speeds up and even bring back to life an old computer. It is a lot cheaper than buying a new one. The OCZ Agility 3 makes every computer task fast and effortless. No too much waiting just like with the old ones. It is kind of pricey but if you not on a budget and money is not an issue, this is definitely worth every penny. It is highly recommendable.
