    Newcomer into the flash storage industry, MyDigitalSSD, announced its new line of SSDs in the mSATA form-factor, called "Bullet Proof". It is being offered as an upgrade option for a number of netbooks and tablets made by the likes of ASUS, Dell, Lenovo and Google (Chrome netbook). Offering capacities of 32 GB, 64 GB, and 128 GB; Bullet Proof can provide read speeds of up to 270 MB/s, and 200 MB/s write speeds, with 4K random read throughput of 35,000 IOPS. CrystalDiskMark measured both read and write speeds to be around the 200 MB/s mark.

    The SSD uses 50 nm MLC NAND flash memory, and supports TRIM, RAID, NCQ with command chain length of 32, power failure recovery, dynamic bad-block management, hardware monitoring, and SMART. With an MTBF of 2 million hours and backed by a 2-year replacement warranty, the 32, 64, and 128 gigabyte variants are priced at US $80, $140, and $280, respectively.

    Not too bad for a netbook/tablet upgrade actually, but their are way better options out there....and they're still using very old 50nm flash memory? Come on....look at those prices for Chrissakes! And those are probably 1000-unit tray prices, depending on demand, it will probably be bumped up a few more dollars for resellers to make a little profit, if any.

    Those are off-the-shelf prices. You'll soon be able to buy them on Amazon at those prices.

    They may just be calling them by that name. I don't think they're advertising that they're made of Kevlar. SSDs are certainly more "bullet-proof" than HDDs as far as the common saying is defined.
