Summary: I have had this drive in my work laptop since December 11th 2012....almost 2 years. This laptop runs 24x7 and is effectively a desktop replacement. The Plextor drive is my main drive and where I have the OS installed, It has been a great drive with no issues and very high IO rates under different tests.
Summary: Installed in a fairly new Dell with an i7 processor I just replaced the HD at the #1 position and did a clean install of Win7 Home and the Pro upgrade! All is working flawlessly! I then reconnected the 1TB HD in the #3 position as the series data cable was too short for the #2 position given the setback of SSD! It boots directly from SSD and ignores the HD windows install! Eventually I will do a format of the 1TB Hard Drive when all files that I need are off it.
Summary: In the last 3 months my computer was freezing a lot of times and sometimes I saw windows blue screen of death. My Plextor M5P couldn't login in windows. The drive was showing in Bios but was failing to initialize. I made the HD slave and saw the drive in explorer, but when I tried to read the files, the HD disappeared from Windows. I checked the Plextor Forum and found these were common problems.
