MyDigitalSSD BP5e Slim 7 Series SSD Review (960GB) – Unequaled Value with TLC


Crystal Disk Benchmark is used to measure read and write performance through sampling of random data which is, for the most part, incompressible. Performance is virtually identical, regardless of data sample so we have included only that using random data samples.

MyDigitalSSD BP5e 960GB CDMThe results are strikingly similar to that of the Trion 100 as we can see from our previous review here. Again, furthering our belief about the TC58 controller. Sequential speeds reach 564MB/s read and 540MB/s write while 4K performance is typical of that of a value oriented product.


The toughest benchmark available for solid state drives is AS SSD as it relies solely on incompressible data samples when testing performance. For the most part, AS SSD tests can be considered the ‘worst case scenario’ in obtaining data transfer speeds and many enthusiasts like AS SSD for their needs. Transfer speeds are displayed on the left with IOPS results on the right.

Sequential speeds are great once again with 527MB/s read and 502MB/s write. 4K read is a bit better compared to CDM, but write is a bit slower at 69MB/s.  Furthermore, it reaches 100K IOPS read and nearly 80K IOPS write! This is very impressive and shows the strength of this controller paired with Toshiba’s TLC.


Anvil’s Storage Utilities (ASU) are the most complete test bed available for the solid state drive today. The benchmark displays test results for, not only throughput but also, IOPS and Disk Access Times. Not only does it have a preset SSD benchmark, but also, it has included such things as endurance testing and threaded I/O read, write and mixed tests, all of which are very simple to understand and use in our benchmark testing.

    Thanks for this review! Adding real world file transfer and HD Tune, it makes the review complete for me. Finally a tlc drive that seems decent or actually good, almost on par with the 850 evo. Hopefully all tlc drives are heading in this direction. If the price is right I won’t be so negative about tlc drives. They need to up the warrantee to 3 years though. I think Toshiba makes the best nand besides Samsung. Why make larger ssds with slow write speeds it makes no sense because the bigger the drive, you’re going to use it for lager files transfers, backups, storage, so these 500-2000 gb tlc drives need faster write speeds. Who wants to transfer files from a fast operating system drive to a slow backup/storage drive? Not me and it seems like MyDigital agrees.

    I think your award and generally your conclusion should be for the 960gb model and not the whole BP5e Slim 7 Series.

    You haven’t tested the lower capacity models, and the performance is usually way worse, that’s why the send the bigger capacity models for reviews.

    Don’t forget that the 240gb model has much smaller slc cache that it may even affect everydays performance since this is a tlc model.
