OCZ's New Enyo SSD Looks Sleek, Sexy

Wednesday OCZ Technology Group announced a new external SSD using the next generation USB 3.0 interface. Looking sleek and sexy with a slim, silver form factor, the Enyo Portable SSD offers the "performance and durability" of an internal drive while allowing users to take their data on the go, at any time.

"The OCZ Enyo offers an array of state-of-the-art features for prosumers looking to take advantage of the SuperSpeed 5 Gbps port," the company said. "In addition to cutting-edge performance, the Enyo offers superior power management and lower CPU utilization far surpassing the capabilities of external hard drives."

The company said that the SSD will provide read speeds of up to 260 MB/s, and write speeds of up to 200 MB/s, depending on the model. As for storage capacities, consumers will have three options: 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB. Other bells and whistles include 64MB on-board cache, 2.4 watts of power consumption when active (1.1W while idle), background garbage collection, a MTBF of 1.5 million hours, and more.

OCZ added that the drives are shipping now, and will be available through various online and offline channels soon.

    If the price is right (yeah, right), I'd buy it.

    Can someone tell me why you'd buy something as expensive as this is going to be?

    You can't/shouldn't use it as a boot drive...

    Very nice looking drive I would like to have it probably out of my budget though.

    The company who manages to bring SSD tech to mainstream first is going to be rolling in money.

    I dont know why I would want a drive based on USB 3.0 as opposed to being an internal drive, just doesnt make sense to me.

    Honestly isn't this a tad overkill for an external drive? 64mb onboard cache? Are we afraid of stuttering?

    I really don't see the point of going overkill for an external HDD, throw in a cheap controller, its not like you're running an OS on it (though I suppose you could)
