Newegg Shell Shocker has the 120GB version bundled with a PCI Express SATA card for $90 as well.
On second thought, let's not go to TechReport. Tis a silly place.

I keep reading all these bad reviews of OCZ SSD's and the Agility line in particular. the problem is every time i need an SSD, the Agility drive is substantially cheaper than everything else around. i have an Agility 2 240 GB drive in my desktop, an Agility 3 240 GB in laptop and i finally talked my wife into SSD so she has the Agility 4 256 GB drive in her laptop. as much as i feel like i am playing with fire, i have never had a BSOD or any crash that i could tie to the drive. Of course if i had to do it all over again i keep seeing some 512 GB drives under $400...

What bad reviews? Anandtech and TR are both pretty high on them. They are definately aged, but they are by no means bad. The whole BSOD thing has been fixed for over a year now. This is a great drive.

Never trust on-line reviews at retailers. Too many paid shills to talk bad about other products. I've never understood the logic in reading what people (who rate their own knowledge, at newegg) who have absolutely no track record and can treated as an expert.

Now Agility 4 is on-sale. Decision decisions.....The prices are falling like crazy.

I bought one for my father and he loved it so much that he decided to buy my sister one. After personally seeing how fast the Agility 4 was, I went out and bought myself one. Three SSD within a week :D
