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...

The biggest difference between Plextor M3 series and M2P is the changed 24nm MLC NAND, and therefore SSD’s capacity can be more large. In this point, it’s much close to the variation between Micron C300 and M4. Moreover, the problem arisen...

In de praktijk is de Plextor M3 256 GB vrijwel net zo snel als z'n voorloper, de Plextor M2P. Alleen in de synthetische benchmarks zien we bij schrijven met grote datablokken daadwerkelijk een verschil. In PCMark Vantage is de M3 de snelste SSD die...
