Plextor M6e PX-AG256M6e (256GB)


The Plextor M6e PX-AG256M6e (256GB) internal solid-state drive is the fastest we've ever tested—but it'll cost you.

PCI-Express (PCIe) interface. Fastest single solid-state drive (SSD) we've tested. Five-year warranty

Expensive. Needs to be placed well away from high-heat sources, like GPUs, in chassis

Over the past few years, we've seen two tiers of solid-state drives (SSDs) emerge—conventional drives that utilize the SATA protocol, and a more expensive set of products that rely on PCI Express (PCIe) cards. The PCIe models are often faster than...

Plextor M6e Black Edition 128GB PCIe SSD Review


Plextor's M6e Black Edition is designed for gamers, and performs well in benchmarks. However, we're not convinced that 128GB is enough storage.

Plextor M6e Black Edition 256GB PCIe SSD Review


The 256GB version of the Plextor M6e Black Edition SSD is more economical than the larger capacity model, but does this PCIe drive bring the wow factor?

Plextor M6e 256 GB PCI Express SSD Review: M.2 For Your Desktop


Plextor's next-gen M6e is a M.2 2280 PCIe SSD combined with a x4 PCIe adapter. You probably don't have a M.2 PCIe slot yet, but Plextor hopes their Marvell 9183 powered SSD will find a home in enthusiast systems thanks to their adapter.

Plextor M6e Black Edition Review


Since its introduction last year, we have been very impressed by Plextors M6 range of SSDs. Whether it be the SATA based model, or the M.2 variant (which is our go-to drive for testing that platform) the performance and stability have been top notch....

The first thing we need to note about the M6e Black Edition is how it affects existing M6 series owners, especially those who have the original M6e. Basically, at the drive level this is the same product. Same speeds, same features (including support...

Expert review by: Richard Weatherstone (



Optimised for professional gamers, the Plextor M6e PCI express SSD bypasses SATA 3.0 bottlenecks to boast some serious performance.

Very fast ; 5 year warranty ; Easy Setup

Green PCB/Dated looks

When we first cast our eyes on the the Plextor M6e we weren't exactly impressed. The aesthetics are less than pleasing and while it isn't the worst looking product we have seen, it will look out of place on a modern gaming PC which is Plextor's target...

Today we look at the Plextor M6e Black Edition. This SSD product supports PCI Express Gen 2 x 2 and potentially delivers more performance than a simple SATA 3 capable Solid State Drive. Rated sequential speeds of the Plextor M6e Black Edition are said...
