Although mechanical drives continue to offer the best bang for your buck as far as storage is concerned, there is no denying that Solid State Drives are best when it comes to performance. It will only be a matter of time before most computers will have...

Unless you're sporting really old hardware, an SSD is the best sure-fire way to boost the performance of your desktop or laptop computer. There is so much choice now it's difficult to know whether there is a significant difference between various SSDs...

In June, 2012 we published a large group test of SSDs with capacities of 120/128 GB and 240/256 GB . Those are still the most popular sizes, judging from what people search for on Hardware.Info. The world of SSDs didn't stand still, and since then a...

It appears that the Xtreme firmware update for the Plextor M5 Pro is little more than a marketing ploy. While Plextor does indeed get in the vicinity of 100.000 4k read Iops, the SSD is not much faster in any of the other benchmarks. In some tests it's...

The M5S is a very good drive and I recommend it heartily for those of you working with mostly compressed data. The M5S is somewhat overpriced at the moment but we expect to see the price fall significantly very soon. Reliability is probably an area...

Plextor's optical drives were always known for their quality. Now, the company is trying to carry that reputation over to SSDs. Its M5S is actually a fourth-generation offering based on Marvell's controller technology. But Plextor adds its own spin,...

The Plextor M5S shows us that there's still a little more upside available to the Marvell 9174, which is pretty impressive given its time on market. While the main change in the M5S from the M3S (note some Asian companies prefer not to use the...

Plextor launched the M5S SSD about two weeks ago and we were among the first to review it. Plextor did not have a specific release date at the time of our review, with their press release saying mid-July (which obviously did not happen). Plextor now...

Plextor is one of those OEMs who have quietly been making their way into the SSD market. They don't have an aggressive marketing engine like for example OCZ does. Their drives are not featured on NewEgg's front page or advertised on most technology...

Å oppgradere fra harddisk til SSD er utvilsomt en av de beste strategiene en kan velge for å skru opp hastigheten på maskineriet. Samtidig begynner stadig flere av de eldre enhetene å sakke akterut når det kommer til både kapasitet og ytelse – og det du...

История твердотельных накопителей ведет свое начало с конца прошлого века — именно тогда компания StorageTek представила первый в мире диск, изготовленный на базе RAM-памяти. Впрочем, тогда эта идея не прижилась, и лишь спустя пару десятилетий компания...

Tras haber concluido las pruebas nos hemos dado cuenta de que Plextor es una buena alternativa en lo que unidad de estado solido refiere para un sistema de entrada (Entry Level), en las pruebas obtuvimos buenos resultados en el tiempo de respuesta y la...

International Review By 01Net on 60

Le M3 n’étant quasiment plus vendu, le M5S est une bonne alternative car il offre des performances similaires. Reste le problème du prix. A environ 130 euros, le M5S est en compétition avec le SSD 830 de Samsung et surtout le Vertex 4 d’OCZ...

Plextor M5S to całkiem udana rodzina dysków półprzewodnikowych, która ma realne szanse trochę namieszać na rynku, oferując dość konkurencyjne ceny w stosunku do osiągów. Model o pojemności 64 GB wydajnościowo przegania Intel SSD 330 60 GB i wszystkie...

Ten artykuł będzie uzupełnieniem do recenzji dysków SSD firmy Plextor, która niedawno zagościła na naszych łamach - LINK. Wówczas współpracy z moim komputerem odmówił model M5S 128GB. Plextor zareagował szybko i choć nie mieli już modelu o pojemności...
