Plextor M3 Pro (256GB) Review


If you are an active reader, you might remember our Plextor M3 review from a few months back. As I noted in the review, I wasn't expecting much when I received the SSD; a Marvell based SSD from a relatively unknown brand when it comes to the SSD market...

Last year we introduced our AnandTech Storage Bench, a suite of benchmarks that took traces of real OS/application usage and played them back in a repeatable manner. Anand assembled the traces out of frustration with the majority of what we have today...

Plextor M3 PX-512M3 solid state drive ( 512 GB)


The only explanation for this is that it's also now slightly slower than the M2 in my testing, though still very fast, performing on par with many other recent SATA 3-based SSDs. That said, it offers a great boost to any computer that moving to a SSD...

The 2.5-inch Plextor M3 solid-state drive (SSD) supports SATA 3 (6Gbps) and helps improve the overall performance of the host computer a great deal. The drive is also comparatively affordable, and comes with a drive bay adapter to also fit in any...

The Plextor M3's performance is slightly slower than some of its peers.

With good performance and friendly pricing, the Plextor M3 makes a great replacement drive for any laptop or desktop computers.

Plextor M3 Pro 256 GB SSD Review


A brilliant combination of speed and reliability.

Fast performance, synchronous memory, custom firmware that improves Marvell controller performance, Acronis disk cloning utility bundled, full aluminum body acts as heatsink

Tricky to update firmware

The last bit I want to talk about the Plextor M3 Pro is that it comes bundled with a 3.5mm bracket (plus screws), a molex to SATA power cable as well as a copy of Acronis True Image for backing up the data from your old hard drive.

Plextor M3 256GB SSD review


A solid performer with a long-life warranty

Good performance ; 5-year warranty ; Reasonable price

Not the fastest out the blocks

Plextor's new drive is a rather impressive offering. It may not be the fastest kid on the block, but it's powerful enough and that price tag makes it a pretty attractive choice too.

Plextor M3 Pro 128GB review


Plextor isn't widely known for its SSDs, but many more firms are now producing their own solid-state products. Plextor's M3 Pro is the latest to challenge the Patriot Pyro SE 120GB, our current favourite.

A superb turn of speed and reasonable price make this the best SSD we’ve seen yet
