Synopsis: Chris Ramseyer reviews MyDigitalSSD's BPX 80mm (2280) M.2 PCIe Gen3 x4 NVMe SSDs and shows just how well they stack up against the competition.

Chris Ramseyer, Contributing Editor for Tom's Hardware, reviews the 240GB and 480GB capacity MyDigitalSSD BPX 80mm (2280) M.2 PCIe Gen3 x4 NVMe SSDs. Ramseyer described the BPX as “a solid value-focused SSD if you are looking to move beyond SATA, but are still shopping on a SATA budget.”


Introduction

MyDigitalSSD recently released the latest in their Bullet Proof line of solid state drives, the BPX. Entry-level NVMe products with speeds over 4X faster than SATA SSDs, BPX SSD features include:

  • Phison PS5007-E7 Controller
  • MLC NAND Flash
  • NVM Express 1.2 Interface
  • PCI Express Gen 3 x4
  • End-to-End Data Path Protection
  • Static & Dynamic Wear Leveling
  • SMART, TRIM, & RAID Support
  • Smart ECC RAID ECC
  • Windows & OSX Support
  • 5-year Warranty

MyDigitalSSD's first offering from the BPX series is their client-ready 80mm (2280) M.2 form factor SSDs sporting blazing sequential speeds up to 2.6GB/s (2,600MB/s) read and 1.3GB/s (1,300MB/s) write.


The Review

In his review, Ramseyer focused heavily on the price benefit of the BPX. With MSRPs of $69.99 for 120GB, $114.99 for 240GB, and $199.99 for 480GB, Chris claims the BPX “delivered more performance-per-dollar than any other product in our test pool.”

Ramseyer tested both the 240GB and 480GB capacity BPX drives, comparing them with a variety of NVMe drives but focused mostly on its competition with the Intel SSD 600p. Chris highlighted this comparison throughout testing because both drives are considered entry-level.

These tests included sequential read/write speeds, random read/write speeds, random and mixed sequential workloads, software performance, bandwidth, disk busy time, and more. The MyDigitalSSD BPX drives outperformed the 600p in every test but one for both capacities, while standing tall alongside premium drives like the Samsung SM961 and OCZ RD400.

Ramseyer’s only complaint was a slight tuning issue with battery life. He said, “If Phison and MyDigitalSSD can fix the notebook power issues we've seen, and keep a steady supply for shoppers, this drive may be the best overall NVMe SSD for consumers.”

The 480GB BPX displays a massive 1.4 PB (1,400 TB) endurance rating which is 200 terabytes more than the premium Samsung 960 Pro 2TB NVMe SSD that Tom’s Hardware recently tested.

The 240GB BPX was described as “budget friendly, outperforms every SATA-based SSD, and makes an excellent boot drive for a wide-range of users


Final Thoughts

Channeling his inner Jedi, Ramseyer describes the 240GB and 480GB BPX as “the NVMe SSDs you are looking for” and awarded it Tom's Hardware "Editor's Choice 2016" for outstanding price for performance.

Ramseyer concludes his review by saying, “MyDigitalSSD didn't just deliver a true entry-level NVMe SSD, but it made a product that competes with every consumer SSD on the market.”
