Thanks to MyDigitalSSD, there is a new range of solid-state drives available for makers and buyers of laptops, ultrabooks, tablets and desktops alike.
As the title says, they are called the Bullet Proof 3 (BP3) series, which makes us wonder if they can actually survive gun shots.
We've seen solid-state drives being burned, even frying eggs with the help of a flamethrower
, of all things.
Computer parts, being made of so much metal, probably can stop bullets, but they don't normally work afterwards.
Whether or not the MyDigitalSSD Bullet Proof 3 (BP3) mSATA III units accomplish this is left unexplored in the press release. Alas.
The BP3 mSATA III series comes in 32 GB, 64 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB capacity options. In that order, the prices are of $49.99 (39 Euro), $79.99 (63 Euro), $139.99 (111 Euro) and $269.99 (215 Euro).
Data is read at up to 500 MB/s and written at 315 MB/s, “not only increasing productivity but lowering energy consumption and prolonging battery life per I/O.”
These aren't the greatest speeds ever recorded, but they are more than decent.
is where the BP3 are up for pre-order, so drop by that place if you want to reserve one or two before resellers around the world finally receive their shipments.
In related news, MyDigitalSSD BP3 come in SATA III (6G) 2.5-inch form factor as well, but the storage options and prices are different.
The smallest capacity is 64 GB and the price is $79.99 (63 Euro), but things only go up from there. The 128 GB model sells for $119.99 (95 Euro), a drive of 256 GB has a tag of $219.99 (175 Euro) and the 512 GB high-end unit needs a payment of $499.99 (398 Euro). The sums will, naturally ,vary according to location, reseller, shipment costs, etc.
