MyDigitalSSD BP4 120GB 2.5-inch SSD Review

Yesterday we published our review of the new MyDigitalSSD BP4 240GB. Today we're running the smaller 120GB model through the ringer. This drive costs less than $100 and uses the latest NAND technology on the market today.

HD Tune Pro gives us accurate read, write and access time results and for the last couple of years has gained popularity amongst reviewers. It is now considered a must have application for storage device testing.

When it comes to reading sequential data, the BP4 120GB is in a very rare class of products that manages to break 450MB/s. OCZ's Vector is on the list, but it limits the single queue depth read speed to around 350MB/s, so that there is headroom for multitasking. That still doesn't change the fact that BP4 reads sequential data faster than both Samsung's 840 Pro and OCZ's Vector.

The sequential write speed is also very high on the BP4 120GB.

One of our new tests for 2013 is sequential write performance after heavy random writes. As you can see in the graph above, BP4 120GB does well in this test other than the single large dip.
