OCZ Technology Group, a leading supplier of solid-state drivers and memory products, on Wednesday announced its first solid-state drives (SSDs) designed for USB 3.0 interface. The solutions are positioned as ultimate substitute for external hard drives or flash drives.

"We are continually searching for new ways to make the benefits of solid-state storage available to consumers, and our new Enyo SSD is designed to make those benefits portable. The Enyo is a sleek external SSD that makes use of the increasingly popular SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface to make transferring anything from spreadsheets to high-definition movies significantly faster than traditional media," said Ryan Petersen, chief executive officer of the OCZ Technology Group.

Available in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB capacities and equipped with 64MB of cache, these multi-level cell (MLC) flash drives represent the most ultimate removable storage devices available today. Apart from rather unbelievable capacities, the SSDs boast with incredible performance, reliability, shock resistance and other benefits of solid-state drives.

Although the Enyo line of SSDs is an indisputable technological triumph of OCZ Technology, the market of solid-state drives with USB 3.0 seems to be pretty limited. Firstly, SSDs are still quite expensive and far not all consumers would like to use them just for backups or transfer data from a PC to a PC. Secondly, USB 3.0 is available only on the latest leading-edge personal computers. All-in-all, with two potential limiters, Enyo is likely to become a very niche solution.

Enyo USB 3.0 Portable SSDs will begin shipping this now and will be available through OCZ's worldwide channel. The drives are backed by three-years warranty.
