5 out of 5 eggsAmazing fast

This review is from: Plextor M5S Series PX-128M5S 2.5" 128GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Super fast, boots W8 in 5-6 seconds from off.

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: This is my 1st experience w SSD technology. I'm kinda concerned about the technology, not sure how long it will hold up. It's working well in my 3 yr old Lenovo laptap. I'm impressed so far.

4 out of 5 eggsPicked Up The Pace

This review is from: Plextor M5S Series PX-128M5S 2.5" 128GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Speed. Why else would you buy an SSD? Heat? None. Electric usage? My machine is a pretty hefty rig (oc’ed 2600K, 680 SLI, RAID 5) so any reduction in electric usage is just a drop in the bucket.

Cons: None so far. Real test will be to see how it is running a year or two from now.

Other Thoughts: I don't believe in synthetic benchmarks. I need to see some tangible change in my everyday work load. I upgraded to this from a SATA II SSD and yes, I do see a quickening of some of my video editing tasks.

Also, the size is just enough that 75% of the time I don’t have to use a secondary SSD as a scratch drive (Photoshop, etc).

5 out of 5 eggsVERY fast

This review is from: Plextor M5S Series PX-128M5S 2.5" 128GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: VERY fast read and write speeds, increased my boot time dramatically vs. my old SATA II WD drive. Brought my WEI score from 5.9 to 7.7/7.9. Games and programs run MUCH faster now as well.

Cons: Not sure if this is actually a con, but the ACTUAL size of the drive is 119GB, NOT 128 GB. This has always been the case with physical drives but I was under the impression this was not the case with SSD's.

Other Thoughts: Excellent upgrade from my WD320AAKS! I have many programs and large games installed, Windows 7 Ultimate and a 4GB page file, yet still have 60GB of free space :)

5 out of 5 eggsno problems whatsoever

This review is from: Plextor M5S Series PX-128M5S 2.5" 128GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Super, no nonsense performance and reliability.

Cons: Didn't make Diablo 3 run any better.

Other Thoughts: A lot of older games run really great. Never going back to disk.

4 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Plextor M5S Series PX-128M5S 2.5" 128GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: - Not a Sandforce controller
- One of the faster drives for its price range
- Effective TRIM

Cons: - No software, cables, screws included
- Firmware update is not a push of a button, you have to burn the iso and boot from cd, but once done, firmware update was solid and hassle free

Other Thoughts: I like this drive so far. Not as fast as my 840 pro (from benching only) and much faster than any Intel 330 or any reliable SF drives for that matter.

4 out of 5 eggsSSD Upgrade

This review is from: Plextor M5S Series PX-128M5S 2.5" 128GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I've had this Plextor SSD for about 2 months and it has been solid. The sequential read and writes are excellent; similar to my Crucial M4. Shows up as 119GB before Windows 7 installation.

AS SSD Benchmark:

Seq. Read: 263.03 MB/s
Seq. Write: 195.34 MB/s

4K Random Read: 21.98 MB/s
4k Random Write: 42.01 MB/s

4Kto64 Random Read: 154.66 MB/s
4Kto64 Random Write: 55.74 MB/s

Scores Read: 203; Write: 117 = total 429.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: This is an update to a previous review. I now have numbers.

SSD tweaks that I use:

Paging file: 500 MB - 900 MB
Disable Hibernation File
Minimize System Restore (usually done in Windows 7)
Change power plan to High Performance

There are others, but those are the ones I always use.
