Synopsis: TweakTown's Tyler Bernath installs a spare mSATA SSD in MyDigitalSSD's new BP4 USB 3.0 enclosure to create a handy and cost effective portable storage device worthy of their "Must Have, Best Value" award.

Tyler Bernath, Consumer Storage Editor over at TweakTown.com, tests out the new MyDigitalSSD Bullet Proof 4 (BP4) USB 3.0 enclosure by installing a spare Toshiba mSATA SSD inside it to create a durable, high-speed portable storage device. After running a few tests, the BP4 walks away with TweakTown’s “Must Have, Best Value” award.

Unboxing the Bullet Proof 4, Tyler notes that the BP4 includes everything you need to complete the DIY process of combining an SSD with the enclosure: BP4 enclosure, screwdriver and screw, USB connecting cord, and easy to read instructions.

The BP4 enclosure comes with an ASMedia 1153e controller with UASP support inside, which can net you up to 500MB/s read/write speeds. For the benefit of the review Tyler uses a 128GB Toshiba SSD.

Once the SSD has been combined with the Bullet Proof 4 enclosure, Tyler runs CrystalDiskManager to test out the read/write speeds. The BP4 enclosure features USB 3.0 with UASP support, and Tyler was able to achieve fast sequential read speeds of over 400MB/s and write speeds of 372MB/s. The speeds will vary depending on the mSATA SSD you use, and if you’re in the market for one to accompany the enclosure, MyDigitalSSD offers a wide range of compatible 50mm mSATA SSDs.

Any portable storage enclosure needs to be small in size and durable to be practical in daily transport, and the BP4 is just that. Tyler notes that the size is reasonable for the enclosure to be carried in a pocket, and that: “The build quality is quite good, with most of the durability coming from the plastics used in the design.”

The MyDigitalSSD BP4 leaves an impression on Tyler for great value and for the practicality of the enclosure: “The MyDigitalSSD BP4 is a great low-cost solution for those that have a spare mSATA SSD handy that they would want to turn into an external storage solution.”
