The M6 is the first and currently the only 2.5" M6 series SSD of Plextor. It has a custom firmware, a Toshiba NAND flash memory and a Marvell controller. The M6S is available in 128GB, 256GB and 512GB capacities.

In its PCI Express form, we would pass on the M6e. We would be interested if it were sold as a standalone M.2 socket SSD at a more affordable price. For now, the M6S and M6M offer excellent performance and reliability, putting them among our most preferred SSD choices.

That said, the M6S/M6M can be a decent buy if the prices drop enough, but I find that unlikely to occur due to Crucial's and Samsung's NAND advantage. With better performance and an improved feature set the M6S and M6M could be more competitive, but as it stands there are better options in the market, namely the 840 EVO and M500/M550.

Plextor's 256 M6S readily competes with that SSD's performance. The same holds true for a match-up with Samsung's 840 EVO. Now we just want to see Plextor stand up to the value offered by those strong entries.

Using a new Marvell controller to pull up IOPS, Plextor releases the M6S notebook SSD which has very stronk throuput and IOPS performance, along with a three year warranty.

The accessory package is very thin, though, as is the average three-year warranty for this price point. We can only hope the e-tail prices are around half of the MSRP.
