OCZ Enyo USB 3.0 SSD

Conclusion


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.

Summary
Without doubt the best portable storage device we have tested, ever. Phenomenal performance and fantastic design.
