Specifications, Pricing and Availability




MyDigitalSSD has already updated their product specification sheet. Here you can see that the sequential read speed is now 560MB/s up from 500MB/s. The write speed saw a massive increase, now 470MB/s, up from just 200MB/s. The IOPS performance during random transactions has also increased, but not by the same drastic amounts seen in the sequential performance.


MDSSD has four capacity sizes, the standard run from 32GB to 256GB. Today we're looking at the largest 256GB model which also offers the highest performance. As with most SSDs, the lower the capacity, the lower the performance. MDSSD does not give graduated performance information on their product spec sheet.


At the time of writing MyDigitalDiscount only had the 128GB model in stock. To make matters worse, they only had three of them according to Amazon. The price for the 128GB model at the time of writing was $149.99. It would appear that demand has quickly outpaced the production capacity, or at least the amount that could be ordered at one time. More drives are working their way through the SMT line as I type this and hopefully they'll arrive by the time this article hits the web.


When we first reviewed the mSATA BP3 the 128GB model was priced at $179.99 and the 256GB was at $329.99. Given that the 128GB model now costs less, we think the 256GB may cost less as well when it returns to stock.
