4 out of 5 eggsVery fast...

This review is from: Plextor M5P Xtreme Series PX-256M5Pro 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: This SSD screams, its extremely fast. Benchmarks show 427 write and 497 read. Whats most important for me was the warranty: 5-years. As long as this SSD doesnt have any failures then I am happy.

Cons: None (yet).

5 out of 5 eggsBest Speed Per $, per second

This review is from: Plextor M5P Xtreme Series PX-256M5Pro 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Faster random read speeds, (100,000 IOPS), than Samsung, Crucial, and OCZ by quite a bit! Max read: 540mb/s & max write: 460mb/s. Very reliable and I've had it for almost a year. Make sure you update the drive via Plextor's website.

Cons: can't think of a single one.

Other Thoughts: I run 2 1TB HDDs and this single 256GB SSD. But now I'm considering jumping to a 480/500GB SSD and using the 256 SSD for some exclusive stuff as well as faster cache memory for Photoshop.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far, so good.

This review is from: Plextor M5P Xtreme Series PX-256M5Pro 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: 5-year warranty
speed
reliable so far

Cons: Plextor utility application does not recognize the drive in my notebook for some reason, a minor inconvenience. The drive works 100%.

Other Thoughts: This is my first SSD drive. I wanted one with a 5-year warranty that was in my budget. This unit delivers.

1 out of 5 eggsSSD as fast as 5400RPM

This review is from: Plextor M5P Xtreme Series PX-256M5Pro 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: This is an SSD and when used with a USB 3.0 connection has slightly faster trasnfer rates than a regular 5400 RPM 2.5" drive.

Cons: For an SSD the transfer rate was noticeably slow. I have owned a variety of SSD's and this has been the slowest out of all. Used as a Server main drive, I ended up replacing with another SSD I had on the shelf.

3 out of 5 eggsNice HD for almost 12 months

This review is from: Plextor M5P Xtreme Series PX-256M5Pro 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Good read write and nice clone software

Cons: Laptop is getting laggy these last 4-6 weeks with regens, read and writes, while using AutoCAD and Revit. Presumed it was the may be the video card or perhaps HD.
Had time to spend troubleshooting. Its the HD failing!
Did a SMART check and received several errors, one being Uncorrectable Sector Count, which means a potential indicator of imminent electromechanical failure.
Scanned with windows error checking and confermed

Other Thoughts: Need to contact Plextor Monday

5 out of 5 eggsPlextor M5Pro Extreme 256G

This review is from: Plextor M5P Xtreme Series PX-256M5Pro 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Reliability
2.4mill MTBF
100,000 IOPS
5yr warranty
7mm height

Cons: the lousy 3.5" bracket that is included
backup/cloning software included did not work

Other Thoughts: Method of packaging the unit that Newegg used was terrible. They packaged it in a padded envelope which had big huge boot prints on it and was torn up a little. Opening the package revealed that the manufacturer's box showed signs of being stepped on. This should have been placed in a box to better protect it. Apparently it's ok to not worry about the money that I spent on the unit if it had been damaged. Come on Newegg get with the program and use better packaging methods.
