Synopsis: Having previously tested MyDigitalSSD's 2.5" BP4 SATA 6G offering, Chris Ramseyer puts the 240GB BP4 mSATA 6G drive through the paces in a brand new 14 page review.

Chris Ramseyer from TweakTown.com puts the 240GB MyDigitalSSD Bullet Proof 4 (BP4) SATA III/6G mSATA solid state drive through comprehensive speed testing and found it provides quite a bang for your buck. Below are some of the excepts from his review where the BP4 mSATA walked away with the Must Have Best Value Award.

"We've already published reports of MyDigitalSSD's 2.5" Bullet Proof 4 (BP4) in the 2.5" size and found it to be the least power-hungry SSD on the market. MyDigitalSSD also has a new mSATA version that uses the same Phison S8 controller and new firmware that increases the drive's overprovisioning. In our testing, the new firmware came with more than just a significant performance increase from the BP3 - also increased battery life."

"MyDigitalSSD set new battery life standards with the BP4 and at this time they are equal to the early SandForce B02 stepping products that we've tested in the lab. In a month we'll be at Computex Taipei 2013 and B02 should be all over the place in new products, but until then, MyDigitalSSD's BP4 is the battery life king... and they might even have the crown after Computex, too."

"Inside the brown box is the MDSSD BP4 and three screws often not shipped with notebooks that didn't originally come with the mSATA slot populated."

"Looking down the ATTO block performance graph, read first, the BP4 240GB hits 560MB/s quick and then stays there for the duration of the test. The peak write block was at 512KB and was 458MB/s."

"The MDSSD BP4's massive sequential speed comes through in our first test. At just over 471MB/s, the BP4 240GB outperforms every other mSATA drive in early fresh state sequential read testing."

"The BP4 240GB mSATA has exceptionally low read latency. This is more than just a charted statistic, the drive feels remarkably fast when reading data, even by SSD standards."

"The MyDigitalSSD BP4 240GB increases read IOPS rapidly and where it matters most to a majority of users, at low queue depths."

"After researching, we found that every other current gen 256GB class mSATA drive tips the scales north of $200. A few are close to the $200 price point but most, like the SX300, M4, M500 and so on, are closer to $250. The 240GB BP4 mSATA we tested today costs less than $180 at mydigitaldiscount.com. With a $20 to $70 price advantage, the BP4 mSATA 240GB is very attractive for those looking for a bang for the buck mSATA SSD."
