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.

The Plextor M6e PX-AG256M6e (256GB) makes the most sense for customers who either don't have enough SATA ports to mount another drive, or who want a single-drive solution that uses more robust NAND with significantly better performance than current...

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 PCI Express SSD (PX-256M6e-BK) Review and Ratings


A jazzed-up version of a 2014 favorite, the Black Edition is a more polished M6e, and blazingly fast, even if the price per gigabyte is a touch high by 2015 standards.

Speedy data transfer rates, in excess of the best SATA SSDs ; Striking black-and-red look ; Free RAM-caching software

Expensive, on a per-gigabyte basis ; PCIe x4 drives are coming this year

The original M6e was one of our favorite PC upgrades of 2014. It allowed a user with the PCI Express slots and lanes available to get, in a single drive, speed potential that would otherwise require several SATA SSDs in a RAID arrangement. None of that...

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 Black Edition 512GB PCIe SSD Review


High-performance SSDs take the PCIe route in 2015. Plextor revamps an existing product to entice gamers and power users to increase the flow of data.

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...

Plextor M6e M.2 PCIe SSD (AG256M6e) Review and Ratings


The M6e M.2 PCIe, an M.2 “stick”-style SSD on a PCI Express card, lets desktop users break through the performance ceiling of 6Gbps SATA on desktop PCs that lack an M.2 slot.

Outperformed current 2.5-inch or M.2 SATA SSDs ; Enables an M.2 desktop upgrade without an M.2 slot ; Five-year warranty ; Much cheaper than other PCI Express-card SSDs, such as OCZ’s RevoDrive line

Still a premium cost per gigabyte ; No file-transfer software ; No 1TB version

Just before this drive, we reviewed the bare-drive version of the M6e M.2—the one without the PCI Express bridge card—and found it topped all of the internal 2.5-inch SATA SSDs we’ve tested to date. The M6e M.2 PCIe performed the same, but it garners...

Plextor M6e M.2 SSD (G256M6e) Review and Ratings


The first M.2 PCI Express SSD we've tested, the M6e M.2 justifies its high cost per gigabyte with blistering speed and a long warranty. The only question is whether you can actually install one.

Field-leading speed versus conventional (or SATA-based M.2) SSDs ; Five-year warranty

Premium cost per gigabyte ; No documentation or file-transfer software ; No 1TB version

If you’re fortunate enough to be building or upgrading a desktop PC with PCI Express M.2 compatibility, which means a very late-model motherboard or a select M.2 PCIe-capable laptop, one of the Plextor M6e M.2 models is a clear choice for maximizing...

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.
