Plextor M5M 128GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) PX-128M5M
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Very solid mSATA SSD. Got it for $90 when it was on sale. Dropped it into a Dell XPS 14 to replace the 32GB Caching SSD that came with it. Benchmarked it and it did 550read/350write as advertised.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: It was a PITA to put windows on it using Windows 8 since I haven't done it before. I am an IT professional and I've been doing fresh installs, never cloned before. Dell BIOS is a mess and I had to figure out how to activate Legacy Boot Mode and ended up doing a fresh Windows 8 install with the Dell Recovery CD because fixmbr didn't work. Had to pop the 500gb hdd out and install Windows, let it boot, pop the HDD back in and format it, cause it kept on booting the HDD.

Intel 320 Series 2.5

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Extremely fast, I had windows boot off of it. I could multi-task with no issues.

Cons: SSD burned out tonight only after less that 3 weeks, my other SATA HDD is already partitioned for storage, so now I'm stuck with no windows, and the Intel offices are closed due to holidays (did not know January 2nd is a national holiday)
