Final Thoughts

Looking back at our test results we feel that MyDigital's SBXe delivers performance that is totally on par for its price point. We are looking at under 9 cents per raw gigabyte which is the lowest we've seen to this point. The SBXe did well with our synthetic testing where it beat out several other popular value options with ease. Game level loading could have been a bit better, but even there it delivers what we consider acceptable performance. We would like to see better workload performance, but again this is a DRAMless SSD, so we aren't going to get everything we want performance wise. Looking at our transfer testing, the SBXe delivers the goods well, exceeding our expectations for both read and write transfers.

MyDigital's SBXe is aimed directly at converting SATA users over to NVMe. Considering it is up to 4x faster than SATA SSDs and that it is priced below what you will pay for a 1TB SATA SSD, we feel that MyDigital's SBXe is a very compelling option. In fact, when we directly compare it with Intel's massively popular 660P we are of the opinion that overall, the SBXe is a better SSD both in terms of overall performance and pricing. Then factor in the fact that the SBXe has an endurance rating that is more than 3x better than the 660P and we have a winner.

Up to 4x faster than SATA, a better value than Intel's 660P and the lowest cost per gigabyte of any SSD we can find including SATA are the reasons why MyDigital's SBXe NVMe PCIe Gen4 x4 M.2 SSD is TweakTown approved and recommended.
