With the increasing need for data storage, we’ve seen a rise in the importance of external storage in particular. But that need has traditionally been hampered by slow transfer speeds of USB 2.0. Then along came eSATA, boosting speeds to respectable performance, but hard drives were then the bottleneck in quick transfers.

However, two recent technologies have changed the game: USB 3.0 and Solid State Drives. SSDs are lightning fast, and USB 3.0 is now able to take advantage of those speeds, but using the two together hasn’t really been done much, if at all. Dropping an SSD into an external USB 3.0 enclosure is possible, but hardly cost effective or compact either. But OCZ is looking to change that with their latest product, the Enyo.

The OCZ Enyo is a portable SSD with a USB 3.0 interface that displays some blistering speed results. So it retains the best qualities of each technology, and housed in a small and sleek form. Frankly, this drive is beautifully sleek. Need top speed in a portable and external format? Then the OCZ Enyo might be just the thing to satisfy. So how fast is it? Oh, it’s plenty fast alright.
