5 out of 5 eggsGreat OS Drive

This review is from: Plextor M6e PX-G256M6e M.2 2280 256GB PCI-Express 2.0 x2 Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Owned the "drive" for about 3 months now, currently using it as a primary OS drive with all the usual SSD OS level tweaks.

Read: 720mb/s
Write: 580 mb/s
Random Read: 55,000
Random Write: 50,000

The IOPS numbers are lower than detailed by the manu but that is most likely because the drive is at 75% full and is actively running my OS and all other applications. So far the drive has performed exactly like I had hoped. I could feel the difference between the Samsung 830 it replaced.

Installation was quick and pretty painless, mobo initially did not see the card but that was due to a PCI-E configuration setting. Once resolved the cards BIOS showed up and it was a available boot option in the BIOS. Its nice that it has its own separate interface that does not require the use of a SATA port.

Cons: No real pain points, since this is still somewhat new there's not a lot of documentation around what motherboards are supported. I was initially concerned about the difference between PCI-E and SATA based M.2 drives.

Other Thoughts: Don't mind paying a bit more for the same GB/$ as a standard SSD for the extra speed and freeing of a SATA port

This review is from: Plextor M6e PX-G256M6e M.2 2280 256GB PCI-Express 2.0 x2 Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Easy to install, Fast boot up time.

Cons: Not much noticeable speed difference from regular ssd drive.

Other Thoughts: For the cost, to me, its not worth it. Standard ssd sata drive seems just as fast.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid SSD

This review is from: Plextor M6e PX-G256M6e M.2 2280 256GB PCI-Express 2.0 x2 Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: No wires and fast. Easy to install, slide in slot and screw in. There are need for extra fans as this generates low heat and uses low power. There are no cables to plug in. Data access is very fast, significant upgrade to my 180 Mb/S Intel SSD. This also uses the SATA Express bus which makes it faster than normal SSDs.

Cons: Pricey because its a new tech.

Other Thoughts: I hear these type of M.2 chips can house a variety of different functions like Wireless cards, Bluetooth, ect. Eventually having a motherboard with 12 of these would be nice! No cables at all.

4 out of 5 eggsPlextor M6e 256GB PCI Express SSD

This review is from: Plextor M6e PX-G256M6e M.2 2280 256GB PCI-Express 2.0 x2 Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: 1. Size (physical)- almost as small as a stick of gum! 2. Installation - super easy! Stick it in the slot screw down the back end and DONE! NO cables. 3. Speed - haven't benchmarked it, but it definitely is VERY snappy! 4. PCI Express, NOT SATA - these types of drives will only get faster as time goes by...

Cons: 1. Price - I know that PCI Express storage is still not "mainstream" yet, but at about $1/ GB it's not cheap. 2. Color - it's green, my board is black. Certainly not a deal breaker though.

Other Thoughts: This SSD is FAST. A good SATA 6gb SSD is close, but for the ease of installation and speed I feel like it's a good value. One thing to note. This drive WILL NOT show up in your UEFI. When you boot the OS installer, it will see it so don't panic if it's not in the UEFI. ;)

This review is from: Plextor M6e PX-G256M6e M.2 2280 256GB PCI-Express 2.0 x2 Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Small, fast, easy to mount and disappears onto the motherboard. Great boot drive and great OS disk size overall. So small it is hard to even notice.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This is where disks are headed and I like the direction they are taking.

5 out of 5 eggscan you say FAST!!!

This review is from: Plextor M6e PX-G256M6e M.2 2280 256GB PCI-Express 2.0 x2 Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: incredibly fast
easy to install

Cons: expensive
needed firmware update

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this drive to anyone that is looking for some serious performance when nit comes to write speeds. The Read speeds were somewhat faster that my other SSD but the write speeds were over 400mb/s faster than my Crucial MX100, super fast drive. My system boots from powered off to windows desktop in 7.5 seconds

5 out of 5 eggsPretty Good - Marginal Gain

This review is from: Plextor M6e PX-G256M6e M.2 2280 256GB PCI-Express 2.0 x2 Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Was not seen in EUFI but was seen in Windows 8 install options. After I unplugged my other drives to be sure it was the Plextor I was looking at in the Windows Disk Install screen, I simply selected it as the target drive and presto, it installed Windows 8 pro in a few minutes. Feel of the OS is instantaneous but not more obvious than my Samsung 850pro that was running the OS before. Tests in Samsung Magician revealed the Plextor was slightly faster all around, but not as close to its reported speed as the Samsung. I'm pleased with the results though. I have a blazing OS drive and a blazing media/games drive.

Cons: Was not as close to maximum reported specs on MSI Gaming 7 / i7-4790K / 2133 Gskill as the Samsung 850pro using Samsung Magician benchmark on both drives. The Plextor was still faster. At this price (similar to the Samsung) it's worth not having extra cables running around in the case... plus... it's the wave of the future future future fuuuutureee.

Other Thoughts: At this point in time, a good SATAIII SSD is very similar in performance to this m.2 SSD. Full eggs for a quality product that works so far with no install hassle and top notch consumer performance.
