Smile OCZ Agility

I'm considering purchasing a used OCZ Agility SSD and have read about issues regarding this particular drive causing BSOD and other problems. Anyone know if this issue has been resolved?.

Firmware update of the drive may help, however I wouldn't bother buying a used SSD. Especially an Agility which was never a top-model...

Look into something new from OCZ in the Vertex lineup or Intel's stuff.

Honestly, the only dif between the Agility 1 and Vertex 1 was the NAND used. Same controller. Same PCB. Same firmware. So I would take any "bsod" problems with a huge grain of salt.

BUT unless you get it a for a VERY sweet deal....dont bother.

YMMV

I have an Agility which is likely of the same vintage, and my PC has never had a BSOD since it was put into service. But, echoing the gentlemen above, unless it's a very good price, I'd wait for a sale on new drives.
