Synopsis: TweakTown offers up it's review of the new 256GB MyDigitalSSD Smart Series mSATA solid state drive featuring the SandForce SF-2281 Controller. Click here to see why it was likened to a gum stick sized piece of dynamite!

TweakTown's Chris Ramseyer has given the new 256GB MyDigitalSSD Smart Series mSATA SSD the Must Have, Best Value Award and below are just a handful of the reasons why.

"The MyDigitalSSD SMART uses SandForce's 0-provisioning, i.e. RAISE free programming so you are able to access more user area, 7% more than RunCore's T50 and MemoRight's MS-701. On the 256GB model were looking at today, that means you have access to 16GB more space than the 240GB available from the competitions products."

"When we reviewed the RunCore T50 120GB mSATA SSD it cost right around $400. NAND flash production has increased since then, but the T50 is still far from 'low cost' even by today's standards. The MyDigitalSSD 256GB that we're reviewing today costs less than the T50 120GB. The price breakdown looks like this - 256GB for $319.99, 128GB for $179.99 and the 64GB for $99.99."

"The flash is Micron codename L74, so 25nm synchronous flash original die from a 300mm wafer produced in Fab 4 in Boise, Idaho. We prefer the simple form though, IMFT 25nm synchronous flash - the good stuff."

"The MyDigitalSSD SMART is like a gum stick sized piece of dynamite. We recorded nearly 560MB/s read performance and nearly 535MB/s write. A big portion of this speed comes from the new 5 series firmware which was a performance update over the 3 series."

"The answer to lackluster performance in your new ultrabook is the MyDigitalSSD SMART. It features the proven performance of a SandForce SF-2281 controller, quality flash and will verify what you've thought all along... your OEM SSD is slow."

"With RunCore's T50 priced to the moon and MemoRight's MS-701 still MIA in the e-tail market (we are hearing rumors of a high price at release too), the MDSSD is the lowest priced, SandForce based, synchronous flash mSATA drive on the market. That statement goes a long way because it is much faster than any Phison, Marvell or Samsung controlled drive."
