Plextor M5 Pro (128GB) SSD Giveaway


Plextor has been making a name for itself in the SSD space lately with its M-series of drives. The M3 and M5 lines are well received and remarkably competitive, especially considering Plextor is a relative newcomer in the SSD space.

Plextor M5 Pro Xtreme ( 256GB)


Other than the fact there's no included USB-SATA adapter, which very few SSDs come with, the new M5 Pro Xtreme has nothing else for me to complain about.

The Plextor M5 Pro Xtreme is very fast and inexpensive. Its included software and desktop drive-bay converter are useful bonuses.

The Plextor M5 Pro Xtreme doesn't come with a USB-SATA adapter, or the kitchen sink.

If you're on a market for a high-end solid-state drive for your computer, be it a PC or a Mac, look no further than the Plextor M5 Pro Xtreme.

Plextor M5 Pro (256GB) Review


There are no surprises here. Write speed is jumping back and forth from as low as 60MB/s to up to 340MB/s. Average write speed is 169.5MB/s, which is similar to what we have seen with other Plextor SSDs.

The AS-SSD sequential benchmark uses incompressible data for all of its transfers. The result is a pretty big reduction in sequential write speed on SandForce based controllers, while other drives continue to work at roughly the same speed as with...

Plextor M5 Pro review: Plextor M5 Pro


I've been reviewing solid-state drives (SSDs) from Plextor in order, starting with the M2 , then the M3 , but now I just broke that pattern by jumping straight to the M5 Pro, which was announced today, skipping the M5s.

The Plextor M5 Pro solid-state drive (SSD) offers fast performance and comes with useful accessories and software.

The drive doesn't include a USB-SATA adapter, and its pricing is not known at the time of the review.

Fast and compatible with all systems, the Plextor M5 Pro would be a great solid-state drive for anyone who can afford it.

Plextor M5 Pro Xtreme 256GB SATA III SSD Review


It took practically forever to get our hands on Plextor's M5 Pro Xtreme. The drive was launched in February or there about. In terms of an SSD's marketable lifespan that's a really long time ago. What this means is the M5 Pro has been a top tier...

Plextor M5 Pro and M5S vs. Plextor M3 Pro and M3 Review


Plextor has recently refreshed their SSD lineup by replacing the good old M3 pro and M3 models with the new promising Plextor M5 Pro and M5S. We decided to compare all four products against one another and also against the new products from the...

We've long come to regard Plextor as one of the best makers of consumer-class SSDs. The company’s products combine high performance with reliability and come with a long warranty. They are not as affordable as we might wish, yet low price and high...

Plextor is one of the first to market with the new Marvell Monet 88SS9187-BLD2 controller and new 19nm Toshiba Toggle NAND inside the M5 Pro. Employing these two cutting edge technologies together into the Plextor M5 Pro package pays big dividends....
