Our previous experience with USB 3.0 storage performance was a positive one, when we took a standard desktop drive or SSD and added it to a dock the performance exceeded USB 2.0 by some way however it was hardly the most practical solution and the portability was non-existent.
With the Enyo OCZ have created a product which gives us the fastest performance we have seen to date over USB 3.0. At over 230MB/s faster than a good quality USB 2.0 flash drive or mechanical alternative the Enyo was able to complete file copy tests far quicker. A particular highlight being the 18GB file copy which completed in 1 minute 40 seconds on OCZ compared to the traditional drive on 11 minutes 17 seconds.
Not only do OCZ provide exceptional performance on the Enyo, they do it in a sturdy, compact, cool running, silent chassis which has a great looking design.
At £250/$410 for the 128GB model the Enyo clearly sits at the high end of the portable storage market, budget conscious users can of course opt for the more affordable 64GB version at £125/$179.
Without doubt the best portable storage device we have tested, ever. Phenomenal performance and fantastic design.
Earlier this year Toshiba announced their new generation of SSDs, the HG6. It might not have the snappiest name but if it performs as well against the competition as their previous drives we should be in for an impressive set of figures.
It has been over a year since the 840 Pro hit the market and competitor drives have continued to evolve since then so now it’s time for Samsung to do the same. Launching today is their new 850 Pro SSD featuring many of the aspects which made the 840 Series so attractive, mixed with some evolutions in the tech used. We will be putting it up against some of the best drives the competition can offer to see how this new model performs.
