OCZ Unveils Enzo USB3.0 SSD

by Reads (4,125)

One of the downsides to traditional USB memory sticks is that they just can’t match the speeds of either internal or even external USB hard drives.  USB hard drives have their own risks, though, including data loss if you happen to jar the drive too strongly while it’s reading or writing from the spinning magnetic disks.

 

Portable SSDs, however, have the advantages of both – stability and speed – with few, if any, of the downsides.  The new OCZ Enzos will come in three different capacities: 64GB, 128GB and 256GB, each with its own set of read and write speeds,

Specifications:

  • USB3.0
  • 64MB Onboard cache
  • MLC flash memory cells
  • Power draw: 2.4W active, 1.1W idle
  • 64GB Enzo: Burst read: 225MB/s | Burst write: 135MB/s | Sustained write: 40MB/s
  • 128GB Enzo: Burst read: 260MB/s | Burst write: 200MB/s | Sustained write: 150MB/s
  • 256GB Enzo: Burst read: 260MB/s | Burst write: 200MB/s | Sustained write: 150MB/s
  • Warranty: Limited three-year
All three flavors of the Enzo are available now, but expect to pay a pretty penny. The 64GB model will cost $229.99, the 128GB will cost $409.99 and the 256GB Enzo will cost $819.99.
