OCZ Technology is one of the handful of popular brands to build off their experience in system and flash memory in order to stake their claim in the growing solid state drive market. We've been impressed by their enthusiast grade system memory and USB flash drives for years, but the 60GB Agility is the first SSD from OCZ Technology to make its way to Bigbruin.com for review.

Inside the box we see why such compact packaging is possible. This is a bare drive, and it does not include an upgrade kit like the other SSDs we have checked out recently. The SSD is sealed in an anti-static bag and placed in a form fitting foam tray inside the hinged box. The only other item included is an installation guide.
