Synopsis: Chris Ramseyer from TweakTown takes a second look at the 256GB MyDigitalSSD Bullet Proof 3 (BP3) mSATA SSD and it's vastly improved performance thanks to it's newest Firmware update. Click here to see why the BP3 was awarded their Must Have, Editor's Choice Award thanks to this FW update.

MyDigitalSSD claimed with new firmware, comes a new experience and that's what TweakTown found when they took a second look at the 256GB Bullet Proof 3 (BP3) mSATA SSD. Using the newest firmware update they found such improved performance that the BP3 received their Must Have, Editor's Choice Award. Here's just some of what they had to say...

"When MDSSD released the mSATA version of the BP3, they also launched the SMART Series based on controllers from SandForce. The SMART Series held the flagship designation, but the BP3 was the best bang for the buck product. The BP3 just got a much larger bang."

"As you can see in the ATTO benchmark, the performance of the new BP3 mSATA 256GB is really good now. We achieved 555MB/s read and 433MB/s write speeds. A colleague of mine was able to hit 450MB/s write on his optimized system with the latest 11 Series Intel RST drivers."

"The write performance took off like a mad man with his shoes on fire. Here we also see a large increase to the minimum speed, again a big plus."

"The BP line going back to the first series all use Phison controllers and MDSSD had very few returns. Of the thousand BP3 drives already shipped, only one was returned as defective. That one drive had a little mishap during shipping where the drive was actually broken into two pieces. Part of the reason for the high quality standards and low return rate has to do with where the drives are actually manufactured. Phison uses Toshiba manufacturing for their drives and every drive is tested before shipping to the MyDigitalSSD warehouse."

The new BP3 product line received quite a performance boost from the new firmware update. This was just the first in what we hope is a nice sized line of performance increasing updates. Phison isn't known for putting out a large amount of firmware updates, so we may only see one or two more before this product reaches end of life. Their products are always solid when it comes to reliability so when a new update is available, it usually comes with some type of performance increase.
