Up till now MyDigitalSSD has focused mainly on lower cost SSD products produced with Phison controllers in Toshiba factories. The early products made up the BulletProof series and were reliable, low cost offerings, but lacked the gut busting performance offered only by SandForce controlled drives. MyDigitalSSD is still offering the BulletProof series and has even just released a new mSATA model based on the Phison S8 controller, much like the one found in the BulletProof 3 512GB that we reviewed just before Computex.
The BP3 is fast, but over the years we've learned that the only way to get SandForce level performance is to use a SandForce controller. That is where the new SMART series comes in. Based on the SandForce SF-2281 controller and IMFT synchronous flash NAND, the MyDigitalSSD SMART is tapped to compete with similar products on the market from RunCore and MemoRight. The SATA III interface insures performance over 500MB/s as long as your notebook or desktop with mSATA is configured to take advantage of SATA 6Gbps speeds.
The MyDigitalSSD SMART uses SandForce's 0-provisioning, i.e. RAISE free programming so you are able to access more user area, 7% more than RunCore's T50 and MemoRight's MS-701. On the 256GB model were looking at today, that means you have access to 16GB more space than the 240GB available from the competitions products.
