Somewhat torn between two SSD's

Postby InspectahACE » Sun May 29, 2011 12:18 pm

What do you think I should go for? I'm looking to move to SATA 3 since I have the capability to do so. I saw only one difference between the two besides the color of the sticker.

The OCZ Agility 3 - http://www.ocztechnology.com/ocz-agilit ... 5-ssd.html

or

The OCZ Solid 3 - http://www.ocztechnology.com/ocz-solid- ... 5-ssd.html

The only difference I saw between them was the Read/Write IOPS. There's only about $20 difference between them on the egg too.

EDIT:
Btw, I'm looking at getting the 60GB versions

I'm in the middle of a review on the Agility series but I haven't seen anything on the Solid series. The specs are pretty close though. Unless the $20 is not that big a deal to you, I'd go with the cheaper one. Any difference won't be discernible outside of benchmarks.

$20 isn't that big of a difference for me. If the difference isn't that much, I'll just get the cheaper one. It would match the color scheme I have going anyway..Thanks for the info :)

$20 isn't much of a difference to me so i would go with the Agility.

The Agility 3 delivers up to 525MB/s reads, 500MB/s writes, and up to 60,000 4KB random write IOPS while the value-oriented Solid 3 features 500MB/s reads, 450MB/s writes, and 20,000 4KB random write IOPS.

Yeah but again, unless you are benchmarking or doing very long I/O intensive tasks, you'll never know the difference.
