At a mere $240 for the 960GB model, all the way down to $65 for the 240GB drive, the pricing on the MyDigitalSSD BP5e Slim 7 Series is very attractive. The drives use the Phison S10 controller, which is quad-core and 8-channel design, with Toshiba’s TLC Toggle 2.0 NAND. The NAND is the key factor in lowering the cost of the drives and may sour some prospective buyers. The SSD Review's testing showed decent performance, even in the write tests although not quite good enough to unseat Samsung's 850 EVO. There are some features lacking, such as AES encryption and the 2 year warranty is somewhat worrying. As always, you get what you pay for and at these discounted prices the BP5e Slim series is certainly a interesting choice for those on a limited budget.
"The competition between value based SSDs is getting ever more fierce this holiday season. Comparing back to just a few weeks ago we see most manufacturers offering great prices to entice more sales before year’s end. Building upon this steam is MyDigitalSSD with their latest model, the BP5e Slim 7 Series. BP5e stands for Bullet Proof 5 Eco, which is the latest variant of their Bullet Proof SSD products."
