Say hello to GB/s : The Next Evolution of Solid State Drives
The follow-up to MyDigitalSSD's award-winning enterprise BPX NVMe SSDs comes the consumer-grade X-Series NVMe SSD, the SBX!
MyDigitalSSD Super Boot eXpress (SBX) PCIe 3.0 x2 NVMe SSDs are changing the conversation from MB/s to GB/s - unleashing speeds over 3X faster than SATA SSDs with up to 1.6GB sequential read and 1.3GB/s sequential write.
Featuring the robust Phison E8 controller, SBX solid state drives pair TLC 3D NAND with NVMe technology to maximize bandwidth while lowering latency and power consumption for guaranteed peak performance under heavy workloads.
Upgrading to a MyDigitalSSD SBX M.2 SSD offers added flexibility for PC enthusiasts, gamers, and system designers thanks to a thin, single-sided 80mm (2280) form factor that conserves space for other components in today's thinner and lighter devices.
Get the most out of your notebook / Ultrabook / NUC mini PC / All-In-One / desktop workstation; experience GB/s performance today with SBX.

Industry Leading NVM Express
NVMe (Non-Volatile Media Express) is an SSD storage interface that sheds the burden of legacy AHCI commands for uncompromised performance that saves power even throughout data-intensive workloads over a 3-year period.
With a lower latency than that of today’s traditional hard disk drives and SATA SSDs, SBX drives create a more responsive computing experience.
Phison E8 Controller
The Phison E8 (PS5008-E8) controller was designed to provide an improved user experience at a competitive cost, without sacrificing quality. The E8 safeguards data with thermal throttling, end-to-end data path protection, Phison's proprietary StrongECC algorithm, and SmartECC engine to detect and correct data corruption while sustaining drive performance and low power consumption.
Additionally, the E8 controller offers power loss protection with GuaranteedFlush to prevent in-flight data loss from sudden power interruptions, advanced security features including Secure Erase, and support for APST / ASPM / L1.2 power saving modes, a key requirement for next-generation notebooks.
PCI Express Gen 3 x2
MyDigitalSSD SBX drives use a 16GB/s dual-lane PCI Express 3.0 (PCIe) interface to get more from your computing experience; delivering exceptional throughput performance and latency for a consumer solid state drive.
SBX PCIe Gen 3 x 2 lane drives are backward compatible with PCIe Gen 2 and Gen 1 interfaces; limited only by each respective bandwidth.
- MyDigitalSSD SBX 2280 M.2 PCIe Gen3 x2 NVMe SSD
- M.2 Screw
5 Years / Up to 800 TBW Warranty
Powerful, Efficient, and Versatile
MyDigitalSSD SBX drives can be used as a boot device in a variety of systems with a free PCIe 2.0/3.0 M.2 socket, including Z97 / X99 / Z170 / Z270 based motherboards, modern notebooks, and small form factor PC's like the Intel NUC.
They can also serve as added ultra-high-speed storage in virtually any desktop with a spare PCIe slot combined with a PCIe adapter.

Installed it in a new Lenovo Flex 14" 2-in-1 laptop I got for Christmas. Had already replaced the stock 1TB rotating drive with a 256Gb Toshiba SSD for Windows 10, but wanted another drive for Linux.
Installed this drive and booted to a Live Linux USB. Took like 10 minutes to install Linux on this drive and reboot.
Boot time is down to like 4 seconds from Grub Boot loader screen to login screen. I get nearly 5 to 6 hours on Linux depending on what I am doing.
This drive is super responsive and above all, DOES NOT GET HOT like a lot of the M.2 drives I have read about. Having all memory chips on the one side makes installing it much easier than the double sides drives.
Would certainly recommend this to anyone wanting a solid M.2 drive at a great price point.
ORIGINAL REVIEW: Got the 128 GB for my Intel NUC7i7BNH as a Windows 10 boot drive. The drive initially worked as expected with good speed numbers for the price. However, there is a bug in the drive firmware where the NUC BIOS fails to detect it after every shut down, requiring me to power-cycle my NUC to get it to detect the boot drive. That was an inexcusable nuisance and I had to return this drive. To confirm that this is indeed a fault of the drive and not my NUC unit, I subsequently tested with an used ADATA SU800 M.2 SATA and a new Samsung 970 Evo NVME with no such issues at all. I am currently running the 970 Evo and couldn't me more happy. I don't know if the firmware bug is more prevalent or is specific to Intel NUC's, but if this issue is fixed, this would be a decent and cheap NVME drive.
Now if they can keep the price low, I may just be ordering quite a few of these. Good product so far but I will have to put it through its paces over the next few weeks.
after that it booted up lightning fast and is still really fast, just one problem, my write speeds. My write speed are around 450-500MB/s but my read speeds are around 1100MB/s does anyone know how I might can fix this?
