Summary: I have not used the bundled software. I have also not had to send anything in for warranty work or otherwise contact Plextor customer service. That being said, I have a M2S and a M2P SSD and never had an issue with either.
Pros: Consistent performance, easy firmware updates, elegant case and handy bracket. The M3 Pro is not the fastest thing that has graced creation, nor is it the cheapest, but it is plenty quick and always delivers when called upon which is the true value driver here (sorry for the business jargon). No ...
Cons: Price premium may be difficult to justify to first-time buyers who are not familiar with Plextor / have not used or owned other Plextor SSDs.
Summary: Upgraded my 3x Vertex 30GB RAID 0 to this single drive. Wanted to get TRIM back plus add a bit of space and reduce boot times by dropping the RAID screen. Complete success! AS SSD scores went from 237/67 R/W to 221/218 R/W and that is still on SATA 2.
Pros: Lightning fast Firmware is a breeze to flash Small, light, and cool
Cons: Price I guess but you get what you pay for! Shipped with very old (v1.0) firmware and the flash tool doesn't let you create a bootable thumb drive, CD only. Not a big deal but you'll want to check the firmware and make sure you're up to date (v1.04)
Summary: I have two of these in RAID 0 and they beat my patriot pyro (new sandforce) in every possible way. Solid as a rock, and blazing fast. WEI score of 7.9 with 238 gb of useable memory. They worked out of the box with my Dell Precision M6600 and boot times run at 4-5 seconds from post to desktop.
Pros: Marvell controller. Probably the fast marvel-driven SSD on the market. Amazing IOPS and sequential reads/writes. DDR3 Cache, 5 year warranty. Server grade toshiba flash memory. Very, very nice enclosure. I have yet to find a picture that does it justice.
Cons: Pricey, but I was definitely willing to pay for the performance it it is well worth it.
Summary: E1 salto cualitativo que se produce al migrar nuestro sistema de un disco duro convencional a uno de estado sólido es enorme. Todo funciona de forma más fluida y los tiempos de espera entre que ejecutamos un programa y finalmente se abre se reducen notablemente por obra y gracia del almacenamiento...
