This review is from: Plextor M5M PX-256M5M 256GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: -Very fast
-Slim design
-Reliable

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: Bought this to use as a dedicated gaming SSD. Loads games up quick and no stuttering issues. BF4 loads in 45 sec instead of 2 min and CSGO maps load in 5 sec instead of 20. Well worth the buy when it was on sale last year.

5 out of 5 eggsRELIABLE & fast enough!

This review is from: Plextor M5M PX-256M5M 256GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Very, very reliable SSD (that is the main reason why I chose it)
Speeds are good enough for me,
Seq. Read: 492.1 MB/s Seq. Write: 399.4 MB/s
512k Read: 363.0 512k Write: 372.2
4k Read: 21.87 4k Write: 34.95
4k QD 32 Read: 300.6 4k QD 32 Write: 228.5
however if you were to put this until with Samsung's EVO, it would receive a beating but not far behind.
Plextor's MLC more reliable than than Samsung's TLC.
Very expensive (one reason due to its high demand) drive, I got mine for $199.99 however the prices have fluctuated in recent times with prices reaching as high as $299.99 and now at a current low of $159.99 caused by the release of Plextor's new M6M line of SSDs.
One of the few SSDs to use minimal wattage in operating mode.
Supports AES-256 encryption of your data.

Cons: Not the fastest m-sata drive around, Intel and Samsung are the leaders when it comes to speed.
Only 237GB usable after installing Windows 8.1.
It doesn't appear to have a built-in temperature sensor but it runs cool,

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this m-sata drive without hesitation however, Plextor use to manufacture very good hard drives now they are manufacturing very good solid state drives, you can't go wrong by picking up this unit. You get good value for money.

5 out of 5 eggsRuns Great!

This review is from: Plextor M5M PX-256M5M 256GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Runs great! I've had this in my ideapad y500 for a few months now, still boots in about 6 seconds! Easy install, and it did come with the screw it need to hold it in place.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have this for my OS install and applications, then I keep most of my other data on the stock 1TB HDD. Love it!

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

This review is from: Plextor M5M PX-256M5M 256GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: This drive is awesome. Low power consumption when not in use (the lowest I have found), speedy read/write, and a ton of storage for a tiny footprint.

Cons: Price is obviously high, but for a drive released in June/July with specs like this, it's well worth it.

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these for my Sager NP7330, which I also highly recommend. I replaced all internal drives with these, one for OS and one for storage. They have worked very smoothly and caused no problems. Have had them since August 2013.

2 out of 5 eggsIt was good until it died

This review is from: Plextor M5M PX-256M5M 256GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: for price, it provide good performance

Cons: It only lasted for 4 months. I bought it on June and died on Oct. So sad that I lost most of my data this was really unexpected loss...

Other Thoughts: Maybe I'm the only one had bad one, but 4 months, it is hard to RMA or anything... my data is gone... well, I'm not sure I will buy same stuff or not.
