The SSD is ideal for those who want capacity with decent performance on their notebooks, and are willing to pay a premium for it. Page(s) 1 I am interested in more information about this productI am interested in buying this...

Based on the performance numbers alone, I was ready to give this SSD a bit of a lambasting in the conclusion. Good read speed or no, I’d expect better write performance from a SATA III drive. It doesn’t need to be mind blowing, but at least...

It’s clear that the Plextor PX-256M2S is an impressive performer. The read, write and copy tests were all way higher than any drive we’ve tested, so far. The inter-copy drive testifies that. Usually, even the fastest of hard drives crawl at...

The 128GB Plextor PX-128M2S offers modest capacity and modest performance at a modest price (for a solid-state drive, anyway). Buy it...

Plextor is not normally a name you'd associate with super-fast solid state drives, but here it is with its first SATA 6Gbps drive, the Plextor PX-128M2S.Plextor's branched out from fast performing technology and internal and external optical...

We’ll say this for the Plextor M2 Series SSD: It’s a huge step up from Plextor’s last SSD. The M1S Series SSD we tested in our June 2010 roundup used Marvell’s “Da-Vinci” 88SS8014-BHP2 controller, which suffered from...

As an OS boot drive, te Plextor PX-256M2S may prove to make a host PC feel slightly less zippy than drives with lower headline speeds but better juggling of small-file data chunks. But there’s no escaping that this is one fast solid-state drive....

Despite their success in the storage industry, Plextor's initial SSD offerings did not go over as well as many expected. The performance of the PX-M1 series was average at best and the garbage collection technology was a poor substitute for TRIM....

With excellent performance, the Plextor PX-256M2S SSD makes an ideal internal storage drive for laptops, especially those that support the 6Gbps SATA standard. Its price tag is not for the faint of heart,...

PX är en 2.5” ssd-disk med stöd för den snabbare S-ATA 6Gb/s. För den oinvigde är en ssd-disk en snabb hårddisk utan rörliga delar, som använder Flash-minnen istället för snurrande diskar. De kan...

I starten av 2010 kunngjorde Plextor, mest kjent for sine optiske enheter, at de også ville satse i SSD-markedet med sin M1-serie. I første omgang var det bare OEM-produsenter som fikk tilgang på produktene deres, der Dell var først...

Plextor zet een keurige ssd in de markt met de PX-128M2S. De ssd presteert prima en heeft alles aan boort om snel te blijven. Kortom: prima keuze... maar hij is wel een tikkie aan de...

Helaas, maar de eerste Plextor SSD laat geen geweldige indruk achter. Over het algemeen mogen we concluderen dat Intel met de 510-reeks hogere prestaties uit dezelfde controller weet te persen. Bovenal kan Lite-On/Plextor met geen mogelijkheid...

Plextor M2S er ikke like rask som en del av de andre SSD-ene på markedet i samme segment. Men vi må poengtere at det slett ikke er snakk om en treg SSD. Her kan det bli et spørsmål om pris sammenlignet med en del av konkurrentene. Så lenge man ikke...
