Right after the Vertex 4, OCZ released the Agility 4. Traditionally the Agility series is a bit slower than the Vertex series but therefore they charge less for these drive. Never the less, at 410 Megabyte per second sequential write, 420 Megabyte per second sequential read as well as 48'000 IOPS randon read and 85'000 IOPS random write the drive is everything but slow.

With the Agility 4 from OCZ you get a 256 Gigabyte SSD which is based on an Everest II controller and asynchronous NAND Flash memory from Micron with the exact part number 29F128C08CFAAA. These chips have been manufactured using a 25 nanometer process. Concerning P/E-cycles these chips should withstand 3'000 P/E-cycles. .

A closer look at the delivery shows that there is only the box, the SSD and a small manual, there is no 2.5 inch to 3.5 inch adapter bracket or a set of screws in the delivery.
