Hello,

 

I have three MyDigitalSSD mSATA SSDs that I use in various machines (ThinkPad S230u, W530, X220) with no problems noted.

I have the real life performance results for TS256GMTS400: http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/W-Series-ThinkPad-Laptops/W540-mSATA-as-boot-disk/m-p/1611164#M46589 . Write performance is not at SATA3 level, but to be honest, in the real life operations subjectively I do not see any difference working with ToonBoom StoryBoard Pro, Adobe CC, Camtasia. My experience is definitely "contaminated" with the additional SSD where I store the data.

From what I have read while googling, the MDM242-SB-256 should have higher write performance.

ThinkPad W520, i7-2820 CPU, 32GB RAM, NVidia Quadro 2000M 2GB GPU , mSATA Samsung Evo 840 1TB + 2x Samsung SSD EVO 840 1TB & Lenovo Helix i7 8GB RAM & ThinkPad W540, i7-4800MQ, 32 GB RAM, NVidia Quadro K1100M, OS on M.2 2242 Transcend MTS400 256GB + 2x Samsung SSD EVO 840 1TB

well both are crap...don`t get me wrong, they make around 500MB/s read and about 180MB/s write. I had mydigital - not bad for the money since I got it cheap. But Adata is way better. Currently there are no 256GB left from them on the market. If you happen to find one - buy it.
