The 480GB BPX Pro is one of the best NVMe drives in this size class. It costs less than it's closest competitors, SX8200 and EX920. Both of those drives lose more performance than the BPX Pro compared to the 1TB class versions. We could easily argue that the EX920 1TB is still the best 1TB SSD outside of the Optane SSD and 970 Pro, but we can't say the same about the 500GB model now that the BPX Pro is here.
Priced at roughly $130 on Amazon, the MyDigitalSSD BPX Pro is a great value. At the time of writing, it costs less than the slower SBX using a 4-channel controller. This has been in the MyDigitalSSD playbook for some time now. Release a superior product and then price it at or near entry-level products to increase market share.
MyDigitalSSD doesn't have Silicon Valley-size overhead or shareholders to report to and that allows the company to remain lean. The company's savings pass to the consumer. That's what makes this company's SSDs such a great value.
MyDigitalSSD could have easily priced the 480GB BPX Pro at $167.99 with the EX920, and that wouldn't have changed to performance, warranty or endurance. We would say the same thing about this drive today. A strong NVMe SSD that leads other TLC-based drives in application performance. Priced at just $130, we have something special on our hands.
