OCZ Enyo USB 3.0 Portable Solid State Drive Review

Over the past year we have seen a plethora of solid state drives.  All of them are pretty much the same besides the memory chips used and the controller.  All of them have been the smaller 2.5-inch form factor with the typical SATA connections.  Today we have something a little different, how about a portable solid state drive.  OCZ calls this drive the Enyo and it uses a super fast USB 3.0 connection.  So you get all of the durability advantages of an internal solid state drive but you also get easy portability.  Let’s take a look…

Special thanks to OCZ for providing us with the Enyo USB 3.0 Portable Solid State Drive to Review

Packaging
The Enyo comes in a nice little retail package that is not much larger than the drive itself.  On the front there is a picture of the Enyo and on the back there is some information about the drive and a sticker that lets us know this is the 128GB version.

Opening the box up everything is nicely packed inside.  Inside you will find the Enyo drive, USB cable, user’s guide and a sticker that says, “My SSD is faster than your HDD”.
