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.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!

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

Pros: These are amazing for cleaning up a build. Slide it right into the m.2 slot and your done, zero wires. And talk about tiny, it's about the size of a small pack of gum.

Cons: Was a little worried when it didn't show up in my Asus Hero VII bios at first, but once I forced the PCI to M.2 instead of auto it detected it, no drivers or anything required. Also the price per GB is a little high, but that's what you pay to early adopt.

Other Thoughts: Read:641MB/s
Write: 527MB/s

Ran from AS SSD with OS running off the drive. I don't like the green PCB on my black board, but as another user suggested there's always plastidip for that!

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!

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

Pros: Fast, Glitch Free so far.

Cons: None I've found so far.

Other Thoughts: This is my first experience with an M.2 drive and so fat it has been 100% positive. I'm using this on a Gigabyte GA-X99-UD4 board with an Intel Core i7 5930 chip. There is a Lot of new Bios settings I don't understand but using the defaults and setting a few old items I know I made it Boot my Second try. Not bad for an old tech on his first try with a new MB.The M.2 Drive is Fast and glitch free so far. and I like it........

5 out of 5 eggsReally really good.

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, takes advantage of new tech, plugs right in to m.2 slot on MB. Win 7 installed on it with no difficulties at all - really fast by the way. This is a good size for an OS drive plus 2-3 large games like WoW, War Thunder and SWTOR. Really the price isn't so high considering it's new and faster tech. No BSODs, quick boots, fast performance. Win 7 WEI = 7.9!

Cons: Zero, none.

Other Thoughts: I bought this because of advertised and rated compatibility. I was not disappointed. This is the future in SSDs. I would buy this again for sure.
