MyDigitalSSD BPX M.2 NVMe SSD Review (480GB) – An Unmatched Value

REPORT ANALYSIS AND FINAL THOUGHTS

As we mentioned in the beginning of this review, MyDigitalSSD isn’t typically the name 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. We have tested many of their SSDs and most, if not all, have impressed us in one way or another. The Bullet Proof eXpress (BPX) is no different in this regard. It delivers everything you could ask for and more. Because the company isn’t as popular as the big-name brands, they go out of their way to make sure their products deliver more value.

MyDigitalSSD BPX

First and foremost, the BPX delivers enthusiast-class performance at entry level prices. In testing today we saw speeds of 3GB/s read and 2GB/s write in ATTO and 2.8GB/s read and 1.4GB/s write in Crystal Disk Mark. It also achieved 240K/180K IOPS read/write in AS SSD. Its performance in PCMark 8 was exactly where we were expecting and ranked it high on our charts as an enthusiast class SSD. Other Phison E7 controller powered SSDs offer nearly exactly the same performance, but cost much more money at each capacity point.

Not only is it a value when looking at its cost to performance, but it is as well when looking at the cost to endurance. The MyDigitalSSD BPX has the highest TBW rating we have seen yet with a 1,400TBW rating for the 480GB model! It also boasts a full blown 5-year warranty, which is something many other entry-level SSDs can’t match. These two things just show the confidence the company has in this product.

With the great performance, endurance, warranty, and many features packed into it, we are nothing but impressed with the MyDigitalSSD BPX. And if that wasn’t enough, they even threw in an M.2 screw and screwdriver with it to add even more value. The only negative things we can say about it is that it doesn’t have an SSD toolbox and it is not yet available in a 1TB capacity, but those are minor and hopefully, that will soon change.

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.

Best Value NVMe M.2

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. 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.

Great to see a review of this by you.
Did you conduct any tests for throttling?
My main beef with M.2s in general is how they heat up and drop down to 2x speeds.
I’ve only used Samsung XP / 950Pro and Plextor.
Have seen this in Towers and 1U/4U chassis.
I buy them for smaller footprint builds, but even 2x speeds allow the higher random iops.
Hoping somebody makes one that doesn’t slow down from streaming.
Thanks

Team Group is announcing a gaming M.2 SSD called the T-FORCE CARDEA. It has a cooling module atop the drive that they claim reduces temps by at least 15% and mitigates throttling. TSSDR should be posting press release coverage of this in the next day or so.

Excellent to hear. The MSI X270s address this but that Dog won’t hunt…

Your 30 GB transfer test is a bit of a giveaway-looks like a Toshiba built-possibly
My Digital firmware.
If they’re willing to sell at lower margins than the other clones-They’re the one
to buy…………………………………….

Please read the report as many of the tests are direct comparison with other SSDs.

Hi, the ssd is faster when the data is compressable, because of the nature of the controller?

Les@TheSSDReview

SSDs compress data when it is being stored which provides higher write speeds than data that is not easily compressed.

Largely due to this review, I chose the 240GB MyDigitalSSD BPX over a Corsair using the same controller that was on promo on Newegg. While I was about to pull the trigger on the latter, switched to Amazon & thankfully found this one. Performance wise, on a ASRock Z97 Extreme6 MB, although using a Sintech PCIe adaptor with a small fan for extra cooling, and would had purchased the Lycon or Addonics one w/out the fan if the Sintech model weren’t available. Because in the native Ultra M.2 slot (just as mSATA), these SSD’s will get toasty then begin to… Read more »

My first one was so good…..that I had to get another of the 240GB version, was priced the same. Wanted the larger, although pricing jumped by $25. In reality, don’t need that large of an OS drive, have many high performance HDD’s & various models of 120-128GB SATA-3 SSD’s awaiting action again. Just felt that any extra unallocated space (minimum of 10% recommended for most) would had boosted performance & drive longevity by the controllers having lots of unused space to work with. Note that some SSD’s (not limited to NVMe) has inaccessible space for this purpose, so manual over… Read more »
