Final Thoughts

The BPX product line was conceived with the intention of taking on the emerging value segment of the NVMe market. This pitted MyDigitalSSD up against the giants of the industry like Intel and Samsung. And guess what? The BPX is indeed a better value than anything the tech giants currently have to offer.

Intel was first to shake things up with their 600p series, but the only thing the 600p brought to the table was super-low pricing relative to other NVMe offerings. Performance matters and the 600p turned out to be at best a slight upgrade over the best SATA has to offer.

Then came the low-cost TLC flash-based 960 EVO, which does pack a major punch at higher capacities, but massive synthetic performance doesn't necessarily translate to superior real-world moderate workload performance, as evidenced by these results:

We are of the opinion that user experience while running a drive as an OS disk is one of the most important factors there is when considering an upgrade. This is why we perform the majority of our testing with the test subject as our OS disk. This gives us insight that goes beyond what numbers alone reveal. As an OS disk, the BPX delivers what we consider to be an equivalent user experience to that of the 960 EVO.

The pricing of MyDigitalSSD's BPX suggests entry-level, but its performance, warranty, and endurance show it to be a premium piece of next-gen storage. MyDigitalSSD is to be commended for taking on the big guys and walking away with a win - a very rare feat in the technology industry.
