Plextor PX-M2 Series PX-256M2S 2.5

2 out of 5 eggs Not getting the results I expected 08/13/2011

This review is from: Plextor PX-M2 Series PX-256M2S 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I installed this drive into my MacBook Pro 2011.
Cheap compared to other drives of the same size.
SATA III
256GB Space on an SSD

Cons: Underwhelming performance.
Call Tech Support and they want me to download a benchmark program which cost me $39.99. Still waiting on tech support to get back with me.

Other Thoughts: Ran Benchmark on MacBook Pro before and after installing drive and my numbers got worse. I use to have a 60 GB SATA II SSD drive in my MacBook Pro and I got Read/Writes around 250mb/sec.
Now with this drive I get 309 Reads and 150 Writes. It's the writes that really bother me. Here are the average of the results of the benchmark tool the tech support wanted me to use.
Transfer Size Write MB/sec Read MB/sec
32K 145 179

Plextor PX-M2 Series PX-256M2S 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Cheap 256GB SSD Drive
SATA III
It is a SSD

Cons: Does not get anywhere close to the stated Read/Write Speeds

Other Thoughts: I bought this drive because of the price. I benchmarked my 2011 MacBook Pro before and after installing this drive and it actually made my numbers worse. What really bothers me is the write speed. Called Tech support. They wanted me to test the drive with another program that required me to pay $39.99 to get and I'm now waiting on their response. Here are the results. Nowhere near the 420/330 stated.
