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.
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.
