Final Thoughts

 

mSATA is here already, but over the next few months you'll hear more about it. GIGABYTE is ready to launch desktop motherboards with mSATA slots onboard and more notebook manufacturers are preparing products with mSATA on board. By this time next year mSATA will be a common sight and should even start to appear in consumer electronic devices. The mSATA PCIe standard offers a high speed data interconnect coupled with a small foot print. This will allow small devices to shrink in size even further.

 

The MyDigitalSSD 50mm Bullet Proof offers a surprising amount of performance at a price that is affordable for SSDs. Users looking for ultimate performance will want to wait to read our Renice K3vlar review coming soon, but you will need to open your wallet a little further to achieve SandForce performance levels. If you are looking for a lower cost solution that still achieves 200+ MB/s performance, you will be happy with the MyDigitalSSD Bullet Proof.

 

At the time of writing, our sample 64GB Bullet Proof is available world-wide from MyDigitalDiscount.com for 134.99 USD. The price is on par with many 2.5" SSDs in this capacity size; you aren't paying a large premium for an mSATA part. For me, being able to add a second drive to a notebook is a premium feature, but one that we are going to see become common in the future with the mSATA standard.

 

Booting from a high speed solid state drive is the easiest way to increase your computers performance and get the best user experience possible. Having a spinner to hold your long term data like music, movies and such is a big plus as well since these files don't see a performance increase when running off of an SSD (they are static speed files; you don't watch a movie at 50x speed).

 

In the near future we'll have the Renice K3vlar mSATA drive article published and will start to look at price vs. performance when comparing these two new unique products.
