  1. Plextor has announced its first UK-bound solid-state drives, the second-generation M2S series. The 2.5-inch drives will come in three capacities -- 64GB, 128GB and 256GB -- and features the latest SATA 6Gbs interface. That's not just for show as the drive touts read and write speeds of up to 480MBs and 330MBs, so the extra headroom provided by SATA 3.0 should actually be put to use.

  2. Plextor from what i can gather no longer makes anything they just rebrand others and charge a much higher price because of the once famous brand name. They use to make the greatest hardware. Wikipedia has more on their name re-branding.

    I have also heard exactly this. Very unfortunate as Plextor drives (optical) really were the best, can't say I'd ever own another... Samsung has already won 3 such decisions, it really is a shame.
