Synopsis: The 240GB MyDigitalSSD BP5e Slim 7 2.5" SATA III SSD shows why it's "easily is the best TLC-based drive to date", and a true bang for your buck, in this review by Bohs Hansen.

The MyDigitalSSD BP5e Slim 7 is a 2.5" SATA III 6Gb/s TLC NAND Solid State Drive featuring Toshiba flash and Phison S10 controller -- currently available in 120GB, 250GB, 480GB, and 960GB capacities.

In this review, Bohs Hansen takes a look at the 240GB MyDigitalSSD BP5e Slim 7 (7mm) 2.5" SATA 6G SSD for eTeknix.com to answer the question: What makes the BP5e such great value for your money?

Hansen takes the BP5e through a variety of benchmark testing throughout the review. In total, testing takes over 36 hours using a variety of programs and software meant to push the BP5e from empty to 75% capacity, including:

  • Aida64
  • Anvil's Storage Utility
  • AS SSD
  • ATTO
  • CrystalDiskMark
  • IOmeter
  • PCMark8

By putting the BP5e through such rigorous testing, Hansen is able to build a bigger picture about the drive's performance, and how it performs under different conditions.

Througout testing, the BP5e proved its worth by topping eTeknix's SSD comparison charts in Anvil's Storage (as shown above) and AS SSD results, while also scoring highly with the other programs. Hansen had this to say about the BP5e benchmark results in comparison to other TLC based SSDs:

"Where other TLC-based SSDs that I've tested so far will drop the speeds all the way down to 35-45MB/s during long periodic write tests, the BP5e stayed above 80MB/s at all times."

You may expect that a budget drive might omit certain features to lower the cost, but not so with the BP5e. Hansen views the BP5e features as more than enough for a low price 2.5" SATA III/6G SSD:

"The drive (BP5e) also covers all the basic SATA features such as power management, NCQ command set, TRIM, RAID setups, and SMART."

In Conclusion

Pointing to the benchmark results, Hansen declares MyDigitalSSD's BP5e Slim 7 as the consumer drive to beat based on its price, features, available gigabyte capacities, and being eTeknix's best TLC tested SSD.

"MyDigitalSSD managed to squeeze the most out of their BP5e TLC-based SSD which easily is the best TLC-based drive to date."

Because of this, the 240GB MyDigitalSSD BP5e Slim 7 2.5" SATA III SSD walked away from this review with the eTeknix Bang For Buck Award.
