Plextor PX-128M1S Solid State Drive Review

Subject: Storage
Manufacturer: Plextor

Introduction, Packaging and Specifications


A few weeks back, Western Digital released their first SSD.  We suspected they would not be the only storage company to move into the realm of flash-based storage solutions, but the very next announcement came from an optical media company - Plextor!

*Edit*I misclassified the controller in a few places throughout the article. 
This has been corrected.  More to follow as I research further.

Behold the Plextor SSD!


Packaging includes a copy of Acronis True Image to facilitate migrating your OS to the new drive.



The specs aren't particularly outstanding, but keep in mind this is a first generation controller.  Let's get to the benches and see what's what!
