21 January 2013
  • Excerpt: Recently Plextor released new firmware for the SSD, and updated the name to M5 Pro Xtreme. Reason enough to put this SSD through our benchmarks one more time.

Plextor M5S 256GB Review

18 July 2012
  • Conclusion: Final Words In a nutshell, the M5S performs exactly like the M3. It's not the fastest SSD in the market, but it provides balanced all-around performance. Some SSD manufacturers rely on compromises and only concentrate on certain areas of performance. A prime example is SandForce. It does well as long as you feed the drive with compressible data - once you switch to incompressible data it's a whole different story.

Plextor M5S 128GB review

2 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Plextor has had some successes with its SSDs, with drives such as the M3 Pro providing impressive performance at a reasonable price. Its latest drive, the M5S, relies on a tried-and-tested formula. The Marvell 88SS9174 controller was used in Plextor's previous high-end drive, the M3 Pro, and we've also seen it in our favourite high-end SSD - the Corsair Performance Series Pro . The high-end controller is partnered with 25nm synchronous MLC memory chips.

Plextor M5S ancora sulla cresta dell'onda

5 July 2013
  • Excerpt: Torniamo a parlare di SSD, componente ormai indispensabile per chi si accinge ad acquistare un nuovo PC, o per chi vuole dare semplicemente nuova linfa vitale al proprio computer. Il modello che quest'oggi analizzeremo non è di certo l'ultimo arrivato, infatti è stato presentato poco meno di un anno fa, ma ancora oggi riesce ad avere un discreto successo grazie al buon rapporto prestazioni / prezzo e all'hardware adottato.
  • Pros: prestazioni in lettura, MLC a 25nm, prezzo
  • Cons: prestazioni in scrittura, Spessore di 9,5mm, inadatto per Ultrabook.

Fuld fart på ssd'en

8 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Med nye teknologier kommer nye løsninger og nye spørgsmål, der rejser sig. Det samme kan siges om ssd ’er. De er ellers lige nu med et fortærsket og misbrugt udtryk det nye sort inden for drev. Plextor M5S PX-128M5S søger at lægge afstand til nogle af de tvivlende spørgsmål. Nemlig om ssd’er har så lang levetid som lovet. Og om deres fremragende ydelse hurtigt svinder ind, i takt med at drevet fyldes.

Expert Review

8 June 2012
  • Summary: Nous venons de voir qu'avec le dernier Firmware dédié au contrôleur Marvell, les performances sont plus qu'intéressantes et assez logiquement, ce M5S qui exploite un contrôleur de cette marque voit ses scores dans les benchs atteindre des sommets. Clairement et assurément, le M5S ne déçoit pas, même s'il n'est pas toujours le plus performant en écriture. Par contre, il n'a aucun mal avec les fichiers incompressibles ce qui peut avoir son importance.
  • Pros: Excellente Lecture, Ecriture toujours satisfaisante, Débits fichiers imcompressibles, Très équilibré
  • Cons: Prix, Bundle
