USB 3.0, solid state drive technology, together in one attractive package ...How cool is that? If you take data back and forth between the office and home or from one system to another, then the OCZ Enyo isn't just cool; it is a must have! As you can imagine, I move a lot of data and am always gathering more every day. It is actually now to the point where I have so many thumb drives, external drives and even internal drives with data that I need to consolidate everything and just pick one device to rule them all. The OCZ Technology Enyo is that device. To say I like the OCZ Enyo is really an understatement. Saying that this is my new all-in-one portable storage is saying a bit more from me than if it was said from any ol' Joe Sixpack. I did write the very first USB 3.0 product review on the web and have at least 30 USB 3.0 products here at the office. The Enyo is the best of the best, offering the highest speeds and in a form factor that I can live with.
When it comes to the competing products that I have on hand, it would be difficult to compare them all, but the Super Talent SuperCrypt is most likely also on your list of products in the same class. The SuperCrypt is smaller than the Enyo, offers enterprise class encryption, but is also made of plastic. Just the other day I dropped a 6 pound motorcycle wheel on my notebook while slamming on the brakes to avoid something in the road. There have also been a few times where my thumb drives were dropped at the exact same time I was closing a car door; you would think that could only happen once, right? The Enyo is made to survive and the SuperCrypt is made to perform. Obviously I need survival over performance because a dead drive means I lose the data that is important enough to keep with me at all times.
The price is really the only limiting factor and something that you are going to have to overcome on your own. OCZ has done a really good job of making the Enyo look the part; this is a high end piece of tech and when you have one in your hand you can tell that this is a high quality part. Any company can slap together an Indilinx Barefoot SSD and a USB 3.0 bridge chip, put it in a 2.5" form factor part and call it portable. We have already seen that, but it took real engineering to get the Enyo in a package that is truly portable. Our sample 128GB drive costs just under 300 USD at Newegg now. Personally, just looking at it online, I wouldn't be all that willing to make the purchase, but after having the drive in my hand and using it every day, that changed and it didn't take more than a couple of hours to reach that conclusion.
If you keep or move data often then the OCZ Enyo should be your portable storage. It might take a leap of faith to get it in your possession, but once you have one, buyer's remorse isn't a thought that will come to mind.
