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. ;)

5 out of 5 eggsThe Future

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.

Cons: Recovering using True Image failed once because of some relation of the PCIEness of this thing to the usual way of doing things. It's not a fault of this device but of the immaturity of the OS in PCIE technology. Something to consider.

Other Thoughts: Fast is good.

5 out of 5 eggsPlextor M6e PX-G256M6e

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

Pros: This card is a great shot in the arm. Giving the owner much needed speed when it comes to moving data at light speed. Can’t say more other than if you don’t have one in the computer you are still taking too long to load data. SSD’s are the way to go.

Cons: price: would be nice to see price drop.

Other Thoughts: will be nice to see the day when all computers are using solid state memory drives.

5 out of 5 eggsPlextastic

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

Pros: It's about the size of a stick of gum! I was surprised how small it is, looked larger in photos. It's faster than any SATA drive (but not enough that you can feel the difference). Anyway, it's a step forward. No wires to run, could make a super-clean build. Plextool software helps you maintain the drive, not as good as Magician, but OK.

Cons: At first, I had an issue with latency, hesitation opening folder/files in Windows Explorer, but it seems to have vanished. Now it works fine, just like any SATA SSD. It may have been a power setting; once I tweaked Windows the problem went away.

Other Thoughts: This won't make your rig a lot faster, if you were already using a fast SATA 6GB/s SSD, but it's a step in the right direction. I think M.2 is here to stay, and faster drives will arrive before too long, but for now, this will do.
