Plextor used to be famous for their CD burners and the number of sheep that they were rated, but the days of blindwrite and moving carefully about the PC while burning a disk are long gone. Instead they are focused on SSDs and other storage media, including the M5 Pro Extreme which [H]ard|OCP just reviewed. It features a powerful Marvell controller not used by many competitors and 19nm Toggle flash from Toshiba. While this drive will not compete against some when used by gamers, that is not what Plextor intended for this drive. Instead focus on the steady write performance as this is a professional drive which thrives under heavy workloads. Check out the review if you need some fast media for video or high end graphics work.
"The Plextor M5 Pro Xtreme 256GB SSD is designed and optimized for users with demanding workloads. The Marvell Monet 9187 controller in tandem with the 19nm Toshiba Toggle Mode NAND provides outstanding specifications. We test the M5 Pro Xtreme with other flagship SSDs."
