Plextor PX-256M3S 256GB Solid State Drive Review @
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.
