SSD prices have declined significantly over the last year with deepest dives coming in the recent weeks. Due to strategic buying of select components, Phison-based SSDs have saw deeper than industry average drops on large capacity models. Today we will finally look at the MyDigitalSSD BPX Pro 2TB model that just dropped to $329.99.


The MyDigitalSSD BPX Pro wasn't the first Phison E12-based SSD to hit record low prices for the 1TB and 2TB models. Two relatively unknown companies were the first to get pricing in the weeds. MyDigitalSSD, one of the best-known companies with a long history of Phison products, followed shortly after.

The E12 drives, especially the large capacity models, have an advantage over many M.2 products shipping today. The drives use the double-sided M.2 form factor. This allows the companies to use four NAND packages. This is important because each package contains fewer die in the stack and those parts are more reliable to manufacture, and cost less than larger die stack packages.

*CrystalDiskMark Performance

The BPX Pro isn't just about being a low-cost NVMe SSD. The series ships in four capacities from 240GB to 1920GB (2TB). The series brings ample performance to users with up to 3,400 MB/s sequential reads and 3,100 MB/s sequential writes. Random performance from MyDigitalSSD comes from CrystalDiskMark data in throughput rather than IOPS. We will look at the random performance later in this review.

On the hardware side, this series uses the Phison PS5012-E12 8-channel controller with Toshiba's BiCS Flash 64-layer 3-bit per cell memory.

Pricing, Warranty, and Endurance

MyDigitalSSD lower BPX Pro pricing the same day I started writing this review. The new pricing came as a response to two smaller companies doing the same with E12-based drives. The series starts at just $44.99 for the 240GB model. That moves to $79.99 for the 480GB model and $149.99 for the popular 1TB drive. The 2TB model we're testing today sells for just $329.99.

The series carries a 5-year limited warranty and gives users ample endurance, unlike many other low-cost NVMe SSDs shipping today.
