Plextor M3 Series True Speed SATA600
Affordable (by the standards of solid-state drives).
Includes five-year warranty.
The 2.5-inch Plextor M3 solid-state drive (SSD) supports SATA 3 (6Gbps) and helps improve the overall performance of the host computer a great deal.
Somewhat inconsistent on intensive tasks.
The Plextor M3's performance is slightly slower than some of its peers.

We looked at one of Plextor's first 6Gb/s rated drives - the PX-128M2S - last year. And barely nine months later, the next generation is upon us, in the shape of the M3 series. According to Plextor's own blurb, these are its most advanced drives...80
