Extremely poor product - does not make the claimed speeds,
This review is from: OCZ AGT3-25SAT3-120G Agility 3 120GB SATA III 2.5 inch SSD (Personal Computers)
I bought this as I was running low on space on my raid 0 SSD SATA 3 (6gb/s) setup as a compliment to it.
My plan was just to use it for games storage. I could not be more disappointed.
It benchmarks at a mere 200mb/s read, 150mb/s write and does not seem particularly quick in any way at all. To put this into context, my old 2x 64gb raid 0 array reads at 700mb/s! This is a pair of Crucial 64GB Real SSD C300's which have a more realistic claimed read speed of 355mb/s (doubled with raid 0).
Benchmarking was done with Crystal disk mark 3 (64bit). I have also tried it with other applications to check for consistently - no better.
I have had this in my last 2 rigs and it has not improved. First was a socket 1366 Asus X58 Sabretooth, i7 950. Current is socket 1155 Asus Z77 Sabretooth i5 3570k.
If you expect the claimed speed of 525mb/s from this drive - forget it. I plan on replacing it with something as fast as claimed as soon as I can.
