The Plextor M3 SATA 6Gb/s SSD series provides read/write speeds up to 525/445 MB/s in sequential mode and up to 70,000/65,000 IOPS in random mode. M3 SSDs uses the latest SATA 6Gb/s (SATA III) interface, Marvell’s server-grade controller, and Toshiba 24nm Toggle NAND flash. Also supported by the flash is a 1.8V power mode, providing the M3 with extremely low-power consumption making it a very eco-friendly product.

The M3 features exclusive firmware with True Speed, including Plextor’s proprietary Bad Block Management, Global Wear Leveling, and Instant Restore technologies that optimize performance. True Speed is designed to prevent drastic drops in read/write speeds that normally occur with SSDs after prolonged use or when data becomes heavily fragmented. True Speed technology will maintain the M3’ high performance and read/write speeds at like-new levels throughout the life of the drive.

Plextor strives to exceed industry standards with rigorous benchmark testing; before leaving the factory, each Plextor SSD is put through a 20-hour high temperature burn-in test and an intense simulation of real world environments. As a result, Plextor SSDs have a 0.59% average annual failure rate, which is one of the lowest in the industry. The M3 offers a perfect solution for businesses, power users, serious gamers, system integrators, and anyone who demands a drive with high efficiency and fast performance. The M3 is available in 64GB, 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB capacities.

 

Plextor's no-compromise customer policy includes a five-year ironclad warranty and the highest standards of customer support.

 

  • newegg Exclusive True Speed Technology True Speed is an exclusive technology providing consistent high performance in real-life computing environments for the lifetime of the product.

  • newegg High Quality Components for Maximum Performance Plextor M3 128GB SSD features server-grade Marvell 88SS9174 controller chip for read/write speeds of up to 510MB/s and 210MB/s in sequential mode, and 70,000 and 50,000 IOPS for random read/write operations at 4K file size. Using the latest generation of the SATA 6Gbps interface, M3 is backward compatible with SATA 3Gb/s and SATA 1.5Gb/s. The drive also uses the latest 24nm synchronous MLC NAND flash modules with Toggle mode support from Toshiba to further enhance product reliability and performance. The DDR3 DRAM cache transfers data faster and helps extend lifetime of the product.
  • newegg Consistent Speed Levels Even After Intensive Usage Smart firmware combines three advanced technologies - Bad Block Management, Global Wear Leveling, and Instant Restore - to keep performance at sustained level.

5 out of 5 eggsPlextor wins again

Pros: Reliable
Fast
Still fast after nearly 2 years of use; no perceptible slow down

Cons: Expensive at the time of purchase

Other Thoughts: This has been keeping my Thinkpad W500 happy with Windows 7. Put in a drive sled for a mechanical drive to separate data from OS.

5 out of 5 eggsA phenomenal drive one year later

Pros: Fantastic speeds. Crystal Disk Mark measured ~500 MB/s sequential write, 210 MB/s sequential read even after 6 months and with the drive ~80% full.

Easy installation, no issues with drive configuration, data corruption, errors, etc.

Fast bootup and near instant response from my everyday use programs such as chrome, Word, iTunes, Mathematica.

Great for gaming, especially when loading levels with high-read time environments.

Outstanding quality and 5 year warranty. These days, this type of warranty is only matched by Intel's top end drives.

As always, Newegg provides a great purchasing experience and quick, free shipping.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I know this is no longer readily available, but I had to write this review to express how much I appreciated this drive. It was a great pickup and remains a great pickup if you find it available somewhere for a reasonable price.
