Plextor M5 Pro Xtreme 256GB SSD Review

The Plextor M5 Pro Xtreme 2.5″ 256 GB SATA3 SSD PX 256M5Pro reached extremely high transfer rates at extremely low access times and offers together with the mounting frame and the backup software a Xtreme good overall picture.

The Plextor PX-256M5Pro 256 GB MLC Solid State Drive with Marvell 88SS9187 Controller and 19nm NAND was tested both in the current AHCI mode, and in legacy IDE mode, whereby the AHCI mode showed clear advantages as seen in all of our previously SSD tests and therefore should be clearly preferred.

All-in-all the Plextor M5 Pro Xtreme 256 GB SSD climbs with the newest Plextor 1.03 firmware at the top of all previously tested SSDs and thanks to the good basic equipment with the cloning- and backup software and the 3.5″ mounting frame it is especially Xtrem well suitable for upgrading existing Mac or PC systems.

With these great results, the Plextor M5 Pro Xtreme PX-256M5Pro 256 GB has honestly earned our Redaktion ocinside.de Overclocking Dream Award 04/2013.
