MyDigitalSSD Bullet Proof 3 SATA III 512GB SSD Review – A Force Behind SSD Affordability

REAL-WORLD TESTS

Moving on to the real-world tests, we see that the Phison S8 chip is more than capable of boosting overall productivity. The file copy results are indication enough as to how quickly you can duplicate and move around your data:

Even for more complex benchmarks, the MyDigitalSSD BP3 512GB had no problems zipping through them, with an average time of four seconds per test:

On an optimized and clean system, load times are of the past:

REPORT ANALYSIS AND FINAL THOUGHTS

It is not always that I am throughly and completely satisfied and impressed reviewing a product, but MyDigitalSSD’s 512GB BP3 drive has managed to accomplish both. Admittedly, coming into the review, I had very low expectations, but the raw performance results put my doubts to rest. The real-world values in particular are simply phenomenal, especially considering that this is a non-SandForce, first-time SATA 3.0 attempt in Phison’s S8 chip. Factor in the price and we really have a gem in a market housing a grand variety of options. MyDigitalSSD has not only priced the BP3 aggressively, but also birthed themselves the opportunity to control the $400-$500 price-point.

There are three particular caveats though. Firstly, it would have been great if MyDigitalSSD had included some extra goodies with the BP3. The absence of a drive bracket is telling in that regard. In addition, the IOPS and write speeds are lower than what we are used to seeing from SATA 3.0 drives where the write speeds are now closing in on that 400MB/s second plateau.

All-in-all, I strongly recommend the MyDigitalSSD Bullet Proof 3 512GB SSD. A wallet-friendly, high performance, capacious drive backed by a three year warranty…what more could you ask for?

MyDigitalSSD really delivered on their promise of providing “the sweetest performance for the most reasonable prices translating ultimately to the tremendous value of the BP3, a trend I hope they maintain, and other manufacturers pursue as SSD technology moves forward.

Hi Deepak, Nice review. I’m puzzled about how the 4k write transfer rate in CDM is 49, Anvils its 59, and as ssd is 132? Ive never seen such a thing before.

Thanks Bill,

I just noticed that as well, and yes very odd. We will wait for Deepak to get back on this.

Hey Bill, Thanks for noticing that. I uploaded the wrong file initially, and re-uploaded the correct one. For some reason, WordPress saves a cache if you have two files with the same name, even if you delete them, and fails to update. So in this case, I deleted the incorrect one, uploaded the correct one with the same filename, but WP overwrote the right one with the wrong one regardless, since the cache has the wrong one stored first. I’ll rename the correct picture and upload it ASAP. It’s moments like these I’m glad I backup my review files 🙂… Read more »

When you figure this out Bill let me know. This has me really intrigued. How about a price for a 512gb flavor?

Amazon has it listed for $419, but I reckon you can find it for $20-$30 cheaper.
