MYDIGITALSSD BULLETPROOF 4 MSATA ENCLOSURE TESTS
Now, we have gone ahead and dropped the MyDigitalSSD Bullet Proof 4 Eco mSATA SSD into the BP4 mSATA enclosure, which is ridiculously easy. The enclosure is packaged in pieces, so all you need to do is install the mSATA drive into the enclosure, screw in the mSATA with the provided screws (and cute screwdriver) and snap on the lid. Then you are OFF to the races!
The enclosure is listed to be UASP USB 3.0 compliant, with speeds up to 500 MB/s. Based upon what we have witnessed so far with the BP4e, we are not expecting to see throughput this high.
The first benchmark we throw the USB 3.0 UASP enclosure through is ATTO, which as we recall uses compressible data. We are returned with read speeds of 371 MB/s and writes speeds of 386 MB/s. So far, pretty impressive scores from what we have seen previously.
With CDM we see some consistency come out of the enclosure, as 0Fill is nearly the same as the results we saw with ATTO. Our random data testing returns with some slightly lower scores however, especially with the significant drop in 4K read speeds.
Our consistency concept returns with AS SSD, as we see results similar to that of our random data testing in CDM. AS SSD did return a total score of 256, which is a little disappointing.
Our copy benchmark testing hurts just a little bit more, as the results are a lot lower than we expected. It’s important to remember though that this is a USB enclosure, and really how often would you be running games and programs from an external device? Chances are you have a SSD installed in a second SATA port of your PC for that.
ASU doesn’t show us anything we haven’t seen before. Results are still coming in for around the 314 MB/s mark for sequential read speed and 270 MB/s for sequential write.
As we could expect, we see scores reflective of that of an external device. Vantage has returned a total score of 45828, with a highest speed of 286 MB/s when using Windows Media Center.
