Synopsis: Sean Webster puts MyDigitalSSD’s new BPX NVMe SSD through rigorous testing to see how it compares with other Phison E7 drives like the Patriot Hellfire and Corsair Force MP500.

MyDigitalSSD isn’t typically the named brand you think of when you are looking to get a new SSD. This, however, shouldn’t turn you away from the company, on the contrary, it should make you look into them more closely” says Sean Webster, of The SSD Review.

MyDigitalSSD is garnering critical praise and attention from reviewers for its BPX 80mm (2280) M.2 PCIe Gen3 x4 NVMe SSD, a drive taking the market by storm despite fierce competition. The BPX impressed Sean and his team with its “enthusiast-class performance at entry level prices”, leading him to call it the best value on the market, The SSD Review’s recommended choice, and 2017 Editor’s Choice award recipient.

Webster commends the BPX for its enterprise-class features, performance, endurance and warranty. In testing, the BPX actually gave results that were better than the numbers guaranteed on the package, proving that the MyDigitalSSD promise of quality is one you can count on.

About the BPX

MyDigitalSSD’s BPX is double sided, meaning there are components on both sides of the PCB. It comes with four NAND packages, one 512MB DDR3L DRAM package and a Phison E7 controller. It also supports AES 256-bit encryptions, which is more than most other M.2 SSDs can say.

The NAND is a 15nm Toshiba toggle MLC NAND with two 128GB packages on each side of the PCB. After formatting there will be 447GB to utilize. SMART is supported, the TRIM is functioning properly, and it features a working temperature monitor, total host reads and writes attributes, and more.

While not yet available in a 1TB capacity or include an SSD toolbox, it does feature a five year warranty that most competitors cannot match. Webster says that even though it’s design is very similar to the other E7 powered M.2 SSDs he has reviewed, it has the highest TBW rating he has seen yet, with 1,400TBW for the 480GB model.


Webster tested the BPX in a number of ways in order to gage how it really stands against the competition. Many of the tests compare the BPX to the SSD’s benchmark build, which used ASRock for the motherboard and CPU, as well as Kingston for the RAM. For the best performance possible he disabled the CPU C-states, C1E support and Enhanced Intel SpeedStep.

The BPX performed at speeds of 3GB/s read and 2GB/s write in ATTO and 2.8GB/s read and 1.4GB/s write in the Crystal Disk Benchmark. It accomplished 240K/180K IOPS read/write in AS SSD.

In PCMark 8 it reached as high as 380 MB/s in degradation and 475 MB/s in recovery for bandwidth and as low as 0.5 ms in degradation and 0.25 ms in recovery for latency. These results were neck and neck with enthusiast class SSDs like the Patriot Hellfire and Corsair Force MP500.

The BPX averaged a transfer speed of 1208MB/s in the Real World Transfer Test, and consumed 1.16W of idle power in the Power Consumption Test. Webster regards both of these results as impressive, since they are consistent with other E7 powered SSDs he has tested.

In the Power Efficiency test, the BPX falls out of sync with its competitors, and averages lower at 311MB/s. Webster assessed that although this is the least efficient 480GB E7 SSD he has tested, the results are still considered to be very good.

The BPX achieved an overall score of 10.5K in Anvil, with sequential speeds reaching 2 GB/s read and 1.2GB/s for write, and Webster calls its results in 4K QD1 “very respectable”.

The MyDigitalSSD Bullet Proof eXpress (BPX) offers speeds of up to 2.6GB/s read and 1.3GB/s write and has higher endurance than any of its competitors. Not only that, it has some of the cheapest prices per capacity in its performance category that we have seen yet.


After completing these rigorous performance tests, Webster concludes that he and the team at The SSD Review are “nothing but impressed” with MyDigitalSSD’s BPX.

“The MyDigitalSSD BPX is one heck of an M.2 NVMe SSD. It delivers more value than any other M.2 we have tested to date. It's packaging promises 2.6GB/s read and 1.3GB/s write, but during today's test it easily bested those numbers, reaching 2.8GB/s read and 1.4GB/s write. Additionally, it boasts more endurance than any other M.2 SSD we have tested and it comes with a solid 5-year warranty to boot…

Unless you are looking for the absolute best performing M.2 NVMe SSD out, the MyDigitalSSD BPX is our recommended choice. It just oozes value and after putting it through the wringer in today’s review, we have to give it our Editor’s Choice award

With many enterprise-class features packed into it and low entry level prices, you can't go wrong with this SSD for your next purchase.”

Have two of the MyDigitalSSD BPX (240GB), which has served me well for close to two years, and another on the way through Amazon.

I was totally amazed to see the BPX reach the same speeds (both read & write) as my 512GB Samsung 950 PRO NVMe SSD, sometimes surpassing it! While this likely wouldn't be the case with the 960/970 EVO/PRO, still the BPX runs toe to toe with Samsung 1st retail NVMe SSD.

Endurance is no issue either, have ran the first BPX hard since owning, has been secure erased three times (provides better performance when clean installing an OS) & the NVMe SSD keeps going strong.

Only con, and I fixed this by installing the BPX on a Sintech PCIe adapter with 50x50x10mm fan for these cards, is heat. When on an adapter alone (have never tried under the GPU on a hot MB), the temps were hitting 65-70C quite often. With the fan, it's more like 50-58C, which will for sure keep it out of the throttle range.

The BPX is a fantastic value for the dollar!
