The Plextor M5M is a high-performance mSATA 6 Gb/s SSD specifically engineered to give ultra book, tablet PC, and other JEDEC MO-300 form factor users the speed and low power consumption benefits of the newest generation SSD technology.

  • - Latest server-grade Marvell® 88SS9187 controller ensures fast and reliable operation for all applications.
  • - Sequential mode performance of up to 540MB/s read and up to 430MB/s write, boosts the responsiveness of ultrathin laptop and tablet PCs.
  • - Random read speeds of up to 79K IOPS and write speeds up to 77K IOPS at 4K file size, give maximum real-world performance benefits.
  • - Advanced True Speed technology provides long-term sustained performance for all data types and prevents speed drop.


Plextor SSD has a unique True Protect protection system to protect the integrity of your data. To confirm that each piece of data is correctly stored with one hundred percent accuracy the newest 128-bit error correction code is used. For data confidentiality, the drive uses hardware in the US Government AES-validated Marvell controller to provide secure 256-bit full-drive encryption.


DATA INTEGRITY

The combination of the latest Marvell® 88SS9187 6Gb/s SATA controller’s powerful 128 Random Bit/2K BCH ECC (Error-Correction Codes), and the exclusive Plextor firmware based Robust Data Hold-out Algorithm gives the M5M unequaled data integrity.


ASE DATA ENCRYPTION

AES, the U.S. government standard encryption technology, is divided into three levels 128, 192, 256. The Plextor M5M uses the highest level of encryption-256 bits. This level of SSD encryption is highly secure compared to BIOS or software based encryption and offers strong protection if the computer is stolen.


  • Supports the SATA Device Sleep standard incorporating the new DEVSLP state allowing the SSD to communicate in sleep mode.
  • With the DEVSLP mode, the M5M can reduce the power consumption to only 1 mW, and resumes from DEVSLP mode only in 100ms.
  • In order to meet the needs of consumers, the M5M delivers an effective operating and long battery life of the mobile device.



48hr Sustained Read and Write Test
Two days continuous 4K file read/write test, zero error pass requirement.
4000 Times Idle Test–Sleep and Hibernation Test
After 24 hrs. read & write SSD enters sleep (S3) mode and is woken after 5 minutes, repeated for hibernation (S4) mode, zero error pass requirement.
250 Times Power Cycle–Cold and Warm Boot Tests
Continuous cold boot and warm boot cycles 250 times, zero error pass requirement.

With its ultra mini size, light weight and low power consumption, the M5M is especially suitable for ultra-portable on-the-go computing device.

COMPACT SIZE

  • - No outer case.
  • - Designed for the limited space in ultra-portable devices.
  • - Highly compact JEDEC MO-300 form factor incorporating an mSATA 6GB/s connection.
  • - Light weight (9g max.) and mini size (50.8 x 29.8 x 3.6 mm), only an eighth of the size of the standard 2.5 inch SSD drive.

This review is from: Plextor M5M PX-128M5M 128GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Rated as a 7.8 in windows 7 64 bit. Cloned my other 128Gb SSD, also a Plextor. Set as C: drive.

Cons: None so far except it is already full.

Other Thoughts: Like Plextor drive ratings and performance. This is my second SSD from Plextor.

This review is from: Plextor M5M PX-128M5M 128GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast, Reliable
I replaced the 80GB Intel mSATA that came installed in my HP Laptop with this Plextor, same size, no fit problems.
3 months installed, I've had no issues. Full 64bit Windows 7 and most of my apps with 40 GB of free space.

Cons: None to speak of

3 out of 5 eggsmine show as SDHC card

This review is from: Plextor M5M PX-128M5M 128GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Small and a decent price

Cons: Have not gotten it to work properly yet

Other Thoughts: I was excited that my new laptop had a slot for this. Hoever, it shows up as a SDHC card in my computer under windows 8.

I had made an image of my hard drive and restored it to this msata and it didnt boot. Im not sure what im doing wrong.

has any one else had this issue. I do this stuff all the time and I am stumped.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

This review is from: Plextor M5M PX-128M5M 128GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: It's fast, it's tiny, it's a good value, and it works right out of the box. Ubuntu 13.04 boots on my laptop in about 1/3 the time it took from the drive it replaced.

Cons: This was my first mSATA drive and it's so small when I opened the box I thought Newegg had shipped me the wrong part by mistake.

Other Thoughts: It is a mSATA drive, so using it as a replacement drive in a laptop requires an adapter. Be sure you're aware of this when you're buying it.

5 out of 5 eggsFast and Easy Install

This review is from: Plextor M5M PX-128M5M 128GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Purchased this drive to go into my media center PC. I can't tell you how amazing this drive performs. The bios on my Shuttle DS61 takes longer to go through then the windows boot time. I am just completely amazed with this product.

Install was very easy. Pop it in. Install windows, done!

Cons: None that I can come up with.

5 out of 5 eggsNeat technology

This review is from: Plextor M5M PX-128M5M 128GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Small form factor SSD. Works with my Asrock Z87E itx mother board perfectly.

Cons: None that I have seen.

Other Thoughts: Took advantage of a clean OS SSD install to minimize clutter in my build. No, you can't see it since it is under the mother board. Love it.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Plextor M5M PX-128M5M 128GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I am using this in a Drobo 5D, an RAID 5-type external storage device that holds up to 5 3.5" drives. One drive is used for protection (redundancy). The SSD is used to accelerate smaller files by caching them on the SSD.

The Drobo also "learns" what files are accessed most often and then intelligently routes those to the mSATA SSD. I had a Crucial m4 128GB in there before and since I switched, I definitely see a significant difference over the crucial and of course, over not using an mSATA SSD at all.

The drive is also on a VERY short list of "approved" SSD's (this applies only to the mSATA bay). Plextor is coming out with the M6 Pro any day now. They are highly praised drives in reviews and enthusiasts alike.

Cons: none thus far

5 out of 5 eggsUpgrade Acer M5 418PT

This review is from: Plextor M5M PX-128M5M 128GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: It works

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Thanks to MFFJM for your great instructions. I might add that while I was inside mine, I replaced the 4gb with an 8gb stick of ram. Now my M5 481pt (which can't have the ram upgraded) has and shows 10 gigs of ram instead of 6. I might add, the whole operation was easier than most laptops (Sonys) I've upgraded.
