Multi-Tasking and Ultra-High Performance

The combination of the latest Marvell 88SS9187 controller and the best quality Japanese Toshiba Toggle NAND flash creates M5Pro with enterprise-class performance. It has the ability to consistently deliver random read / write speeds up to 100,000 / 88,000 IOPS and sequential read / write speeds up to 540 / 470 MB/s. This makes the M5Pro suitable for use in a heavy workstation, server role, or Raid 0 configuration.

Enterprise-Grade Double-Data Protection

In line with the needs of advanced users for data integrity and confidentiality the M5Pro offers a unique enterprise-grade double-data protection technology. Using latest 128-bit error correction system built into the latest Marvell controller it is able to automatically check and correct the accuracy of data being read from the Flash memory. This is complemented by a second layer of read protection offered by the Robust Data Hold-out algorithm in Plextor’s exclusive firmware, allowing the drive to achieve total data accuracy even in the long-term.

For data confidentiality the M5Pro supports full drive encryption with an Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256 bit algorithm using its US Government AES-validated Marvell controller.

Professional Quality and Reliability

With the M5Pro, Plextor has focused on developing and supplying one of the most stable drives on the market. To achieve this, extensive pre-production testing took place using the world’s most advanced SSD testing facilities - FLEXSTAR testing chamber. It was only when the design was able to pass strict enterprise-grade Zero Error standard of 400 units surviving 500 hours of the toughest continuous testing without a single error or failure that the drive was approved. To ensure stability and reliability for individual drives all drives undergo rigorous high-temperature burn-in tests and accelerated usage simulation testing.
