The OCZ Agility 4 features a plastic and metal casing which is lightweight and rigid. It looks attractive and should do a good job of protecting the internal components.

The top side of the PCB features the Indilinx Everest 2 controller, alongside eight 16 GiB OCZ-branded H2502128T048AX22 memory chips. There is also a single 256 MiB Hynix cache chip on this side.

Turning the PCB over reveals eight further 16 GiB memory chips alongside a further cache trip. The overall storage capacity of 256 GiB is reduced to around 238 GiB when formatted in Windows.
