Plextor M8Pe(G) M.2 2280 128GB NVMe PCI-Express 3.0 x4 MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) PX-128M8PeG
Plextor M8Pe(G) M.2 2280 128GB NVMe PCI-Express 3.0 x4 MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) PX-128M8PeG

Pros: Fast (see below) and functional as a M.2 NvME SSD.

Cons: Device's ROM results in a remarkably SLOW Plextor banner splash screen upon boot. Effectively defeats the goal of NvME 2.0 ultra-fast OS boot.

Overall Review: Plextor seems to feels that their need to use your PC's monitor screen as an ad platform trumps all. A search of the net finds several posts commenting on this "feature" and a means to turn it off. Plextor's official reply is that the splash screen can't be turned off. It can be turned off by disabling Legacy ROMs in the firmware setup. Two egg rating without this work-around. Shame on Plextor for screwing up a really good product.
