Synopsis: In their latest article, The SSD Review puts the 256GB MyDigitalSSD Bullet Proof 3 SATA 6G 50mm mSATA drive through their bench test gauntlet and shows why you should consider the BP3 when making your next upgrade.

Fresh off their review of the MyDigitalSSD Smart Series, The SSD Review takes an extensive look at the price to performance minded 256GB MyDigitalSSD Bullet Proof 3 (BP3) SATA III (6G) 50mm mSATA solid state drive. Here's just some of what they had to say about it...

"The MyDigitalSSD Bullet Proof 3 256GB SSD is the little brother of the SMART and, although it is not ‘SandForce Driven’ and is a bit lower in performance, it’s capacity and price point make it a definite contender in the mSATA market."

"The BP3 is driven by the Phison S8 SATA 3 controller with a 128MB Nanya DRAM Cache Buffer. Previous to the MyDigitalSSD releases, mSATA drives had always seen use of the less expensive asynchronous NAND flash memory, however, this value driven mSATA SSD has done one better. Four modules of premium Toshiba Toggle Mode 24nm NAND flash memory (TH58TEG9D2HBA89) provide the advertised capacity of 256GB, each being 64GB in size. Formatting reduces end user capacity slightly to 238GB as will become evident in our benchmark testing."

"In the case of the Bullet Proof 3, their isn’t a great deal of the SMART information available but this could only be expected from any value minded product. Even with the limited attribute count, we can still verify that this is SATA 3, 256GB in size and that it is TRIM capable as well as the Power On and Power On Hours count."

"We have some excellent transfer speeds and times as shown in the Copy Bench which can be credited to the Toshiba premium memory used."

"Simply put, The Bullet Proof 3 is not equipped with ‘earth shattering’ performance and that only makes sense as, after all, it wasn’t meant to be. It was meant to fill the void of a high capacity and affordable mSATA solution that has become very evident as of late."

"MyDigitalSSD now has a very controlling position in the mSATA marketplace because they not only hold the highest capacity and top performing mSATA SSDs available to the consumer, but also, they have priced both SSDs well below what was previously expected for mSATA releases and have respected both the performance and value minded consumer equally."
