OCZ Enyo USB 3.0 Portable Solid State Drive Review

Testing – HDTune Pro
HDTune Pro is one of the most popular hard drive software suites available. It has many different benchmarks and tests built into it. Our first test is the read benchmark, which tests the average read speed and access time of the drive.

Not bad to start out with, although in this test and all of the HDTune tests using OCZ’s supplied driver the Enyo scored better without the driver installed.  Next up we have the write benchmark.

Since the release of HDTune 3.5 there has been a new Random Access test added to the software. This test measures the performance of random read and write operations. Tests are taken in 512b, 4KB, 64KB, 1MB, and random file sizes. The performance of the drive is reported in operations a second (IOPS), average access time and average speed. Here are both the results from the read and write random access tests.

Not bad, although we have seen 4K scores around 7-8K with the latest solid state drives we have tested.  Our final test with HDTune is the file benchmark.

This test tops out at about 235MB/s read and 215MB/s read.
