Plextor PX-256M3S 256GB Solid State Drive Review

Posted on Monday, January 16 2012 @ 13:30:49 CET by

If you're looking for the best bang for your buck, Plextor's new M3S series SSD just might be it. Based on the same Marvell 88SS9174 controller as the company's M2P series, the M3S combines Toshiba's 24nm Toggle NAND flash with Plextor's exclusive True Speed technology to deliver some great, all around performance. In our sequential read and write tests, the PX-256M3S was able to read at speeds as high as 508 MB/s and write at speeds in excess of 350 MB/s. These numbers aren't as high as what we've seen with some of the newer SandForce-based drives. However, the M3S performs equally well with compressible and incompressible data and, thanks to technologies like Instant Restore, Global Wear Leveling and Bad Block Management, is able to sustain these speeds, even after intensive use.
