Plextor PX-256M3P 256GB Solid State Drive

21 April 2012
  • Conclusion: TRIM and True Speed: While SSD's offer many benefits, there are some downsides to using flash memory. One of the biggest issues people run into is performance degradation. Over time, an SSD will run out of fresh blocks and will have to write over data the file system has marked as deleted. This procedure is very complicated and can slow an SSD's write speeds considerably. To fix this problem, most manufacturers have added TRIM support to their SSDs.
  • Pros: True Speed technology, Available in 128GB, 256GB and 512GB capacities, Excellent sequential read and write speeds, Performs equally well with compressible and incompressible data, Consistent performance, even after intensive usage, SATA 6Gb/s interface, Toggle NAND flash, Massive 512MB cache on PX-256M3P and PX-512M3P, Exclusive firmware with Instant Restore, Global Wear Leveling and Bad Block Management, Supports TRIM, SMART and NCQ, Low power consumption, Ultra-slim...
  • Cons: Not as fast as SandForce-based SSDs when reading and writing compressible data, Pricey

  • Excerpt: As I'm sitting here looking over the performance numbers Speed Channel is airing a documentary on the Porsche 911. Around 1963 Porsche released their iconic two door sports car. The 911 name lives on today, but so does the exterior design. When you see a 911, be it a model produced in 1969, my favorite, the 1982 slant nose turbo with the big whale tail to the new 2012 you know it is a 911.

  • Excerpt: You may not have noticed but there's been a changing of the guard when it comes to SSDs based on Marvell controllers. The first Marvell SATA 6G drive to enter the market was the Crucial C300 . The C300 battled it out with the first generation SandForce controller which at the time were limited to SATA 3G speeds of 285MB/s read. The C300 took advantage of SATA 6G and mustered an impressive 375MB/s read speed in our tests of the 256GB model.

  • Conclusion: Plextor ist mit der M3 Pro PX-256M3P ein echter Geheimtipp gelungen. Die 256-GByte-SSD bietet derzeit das beste Leistungspaket und der Preis ist durchaus angemessen. Dank der extrem niedrigen Bauhöhe eignet sich die schicke Spitzen-SSD auch für sehr dünne Notebooks.
  • Pros: Sehr hohe Transferraten, Niedrige Zugriffszeiten, Dünnes Gehäuse, Sehr gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis, Top IOPS-Wert beim Schreiben (4.096 Byte)

Plextor M3 Pro PX-256M3P

10 February 2012
  • Excerpt: Det er så også testens absolut dyreste drev, hvilket der til dels rådes bod på med garantien og den medfølgende Acronis True Image OEM HD-software, der letter migration fra en tidligere harddisk over på M3 Pro. Der er tale om et ssd næsten uden svagheder. I langt de fleste test klarer det sig ganske overbevisende.
