1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY

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

Pros: Its tiny, solid state, fast, and seems like very cool technology.

Cons: Total !#%. Returning for RMA. Data Corruption occurs within weeks of secure format / erase with very little use. Files get corrupted all the time. OS crashes due to file corruption. Apps fail due to corruption.

I have worked with computers for a very long time. At my house I have multiple servers, multiple PC's and Laptops. The servers have many harddrives (with spinning disk) and the PC's and laptops have some other SSD.

This drive has been a total nightmare. Windows 7 and windows 8 installed at different times, with only a few apps, designed to be a desktop only, with no local storage of data (therefore limited read/write cycles).

Windows has been reinstalled about 12 times, 2 after secure total wipe of drive. Keeps crashing in weird ways. Applications (MS office, Chrome, IE) all have failed at various times. During one attempt to reinstall OS, the installer crashed about 10 times before I finally did a complete secure erase and started over. JPEG temp stored on desktop for a few days become corrupted with segments inside picture becoming unreadable (data corruption). Documents fail to open after being on drive for a week or more.

Look, I never write reviews. I read them all the time, and I thank the rest of you. But this one is really making me angry. You all have to know, this thing is @#$%. And there are no cables to blame, and the PC works great if you replace this m.2 SSD with a spinning disk drive. No corruption at all with extended use. M.2 drive fails within a few days or weeks of use.

And the really bad thing? No way to prove it. Data corruption is not a "failed drive" Just bits are getting changed here and there and it slowly leads to disaster. Ugh...why did I buy this thing. Why did I want to have cutting edge technology.

5 out of 5 eggsSmall and speedy

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 and set up, meets speed specs right out of the box.

Already had one of these:
Plextor M6e Black Edition PX-256M6e-BK Half-Height, Half-Length (HH-HL) 256GB PCI-Express 2.0 x2 Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Both are great additions to my machine.

Plextor answered my email questions in a reasonable time frame.

Cons: No more mobo "slots" to add more ;-)

3 out of 5 eggsDead upon arrival.

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

Pros: Didn't have the chance to test the product.

Cons: Dead upon arrival

Other Thoughts: I have no doubt that this is a good SSD if it works... it was dead upon arrival unfortunately. I also am worried about the fact that it might run a hot.

1 out of 5 eggsStarted Out Well, Ended in Frustration

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

Pros: Very fast. Supports legacy booting.

Cons: Locks up.

Other Thoughts: At first, this SSD ran flawlessly for about 4-5 months. All of a sudden I started getting 2-3 lockups per day. I'm running Ubuntu Linux and when the problem occurs linux tells me it cannot communicate with this SSD. I have tried updating the SSD firmware and my motherboard's BIOS with no success. I guess I'll have to find a replacement SSD.

4 out of 5 eggsFantastic Drive but Questions

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

Pros: Fast
Small
Does the job as a boot Drive

Cons: Questions regarding compatibility and Drivers/Firmware

Other Thoughts: I just did a new build with a ASUS X99 3.1 Deluxe MB. I had no problem installing Win7 64bit to this drive. However, as soon as windows starts its updating the system will hang at Windows splash. I have been building systems >20 years and nothing I tried fixed this. I did not have a problem using a older Vertex 4 drive. Out of frustration I tried installing latest TP of Win 10. Runs like a champ. No issues at all. Therefore I suspect a driver/firmware issue with drive and the ASUS x99 Deluxe under Win7 64bit. Not sure where the fault is. Since the hardware on both sides is so new could be either but Win 10 obviously fixes issues. Still, I wish it would work under Win 7 as ASUS lists this drive as compatible with the X99X Deluxe. Otherwise, Fantastic drive.

5 out of 5 eggsMeep Meep ---------->

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

Pros: Fast......Very fast...... Windows 8.1 loads in 20 seconds or better from full shut down. This thing is tiny. Not a whole lot bigger than a jump drive. Tuck it away nicely on the motherboard and amaze your friends with the speed. The numbers that they advertise aren't exaggerated. it will go that fast. Benchmarked drive at 735 mb/sec in my rig.

Cons: High price for such little space. Green?!?!?! didn't we get rid of that years ago??

Other Thoughts: Love this thing!!! The green is hidden by my graphics cards that cover it up nicely. Not sure why they stuck with green on a high end part like this but how much time do you really spend looking into your case drooling.

5 out of 5 eggsIncredible

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

Pros: Very easy install, incredibly fast. Very small. Bios on Auto picked it up and I was off and running with it instantly.

Cons: Using ATTO I only achieved 729 MB read speed, but even so, that is a very high read rate. Using ATTO I got 569 write speeds. Still blows anything else right out of the water.

Other Thoughts: I didn't really need this but I love it. Using a Asrock pro 4 motherboard with a Z97 chip. Not exactly top of the line but even so read and write speeds are outstanding. Very pleased.

5 out of 5 eggsplextor m.2

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

Pros: It works great.

video: EVGA 650 GTX
MB: MSI Z79 U Plus

Cons: MB required UEFI in order to boot from this thing.
Had to reinstall Win 8.1 to use UEFI (lucky I bought retail copy of it.)
My vidio card required firmware update for MB to go UEFI. (had to email EVGA to get it)
MB required BIOS update to v 1.6
The drive required firmware update to 106 in order to stop HD light constant flashing

Other Thoughts: Evidently 600 series nvidia not UEFI unless special firmware installed.
I expected drive to be current since it was produced last month but had issue with drive light constantly flashing. I finally noticed the drive light still flashing even in bios before win 8 loaded and checked Plextor site.
All in all drive works great but installation ended up being a lot more complicated than I expected.
I was scared updating video and drive firmware as it is easy to brick things with firmware updates.
