Synopsis: No stranger to MyDigitalSSD drives, Chris Ramseyer puts the 960GB BP4 2.5" Slim 7 Series SSD to the test to see how it stacks up against the 960GB Crucial M500 and others. Read more to find out how the BP4 did and why it received TweakTown's "MUST HAVE" Best Features Award.

As solid state drives enter the Tera Era, Chris Ramseyer from TweakTown.com sits down with the 960GB MyDigitalSSD BP4 2.5" Slim 7 Series SSD. Having reviewed the BP4 in other capacities, Chris now tests to see if the large capacity model does as well as the smaller versions. Below are some excerpts.

"If you caught my article published last week, The Great SSD Flash Shortage of 2013 - EOL 25nm, the Pain and the Future, then you know flash and SSDs prices are on the upswing. I'm not saying that MyDigital's price are going to increase, just that there is a really good chance for it to happen. Since nearly every other SSD has already increased, the BP4 product line is at a very good spot right now."

"Officially the BP4 is now part of the new product line called Slim 7 Series. This refers to the new 7mm z-height package for ultrabooks."

"It doesn't surprise me to see the BP4 ramping up faster than the Crucial M500 in sequential reads. The BP4 does extremely well when reading data."

"The BP4 960GB ramps up quickly just like what we saw in ATTO. This drive is the 1QD champion for consumer drives and it keeps that lead all the way to QD4. At that point the 960GB model hits a wall, but that's fine since this is a consumer SSD and not an enterprise SSD."

"When transferring mixed mode data comprised of real-world files, the MyDigitalSSD BP4 writes the data a little faster than the M500, but reads a little slower."

"Of course measuring performance with a microscope is always fine, too. In our performance tests today the MyDigitalSSD BP4 960GB scored well when reading and writing sequential data and well when reading random data, but random writes could use a little help."

"With this product though, speed, battery life for the most part and all of other features take a back seat to good 'ole capacity. There's no replacement for displacement, err capacity. The MyDigitalSSD BP4 has 960GB of user capacity and MyDigitalDiscount.com has them in stock for $799.99. It costs a bit more than the Crucial M500 960GB, but at least you can spend your money and get one in just a few days at the time of writing. It's better than being on a wait list."
