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 Review: Solid State Drive for PCI Express


We all look forward to SATA Express and M.2 interfaces expansion and appearance SSDs for these interfaces. However, we can buy a SSD for PCIe bus, Plextor have gave us such opportunity already. Is it a good choice or we should wait of introducing of...

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....

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...

Plextor M6e Black Edition PCIe 256GB Review


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 sequenti...

Marvell controller is equally good with incompressible and compressible data ; good IOPS performance ; lovely looking product

twice the price of high grade 250GB SATA 3 drives ; you lose a PCIe slot ; overall performance is quite disappointing

What read speed is needed for SSD satisfaction?

Plextor M6e M.2. SSD Review


One thing that has remained pretty constant since SSDs started to appear, is that the storage interface they connect to appears to struggle to keep pace with the performance levels of the SSD.The SATA2 interface was soon saturated by the SSDs of the...

Consumer review by: TechyWiz (

Very easy to setup and very fast.


A great choice for those that want faster than traditional SSD speeds, but don't want to do a RAID0 setup. The heatsink from the side is shaped like flames too, this thing looks great and performs great.

Super easy to setup. Literally just as easy to setup as a traditional SSD. Fast speeds, getting average 740MB/s reads. Also with PlextorTurbo, it uses 4GB of the ram for operations which on the speed test gave 50GB/s plus read speed. The price too...

Not really much I can say bad about it. I guess it takes up a PCI express slot unlike an SSD
