Conclusion: Based on the performance numbers alone, I was ready to give this SSD a bit of a lambasting in the conclusion. Good read speed or no, I’d expect better write performance from a SATA III drive. It doesn’t need to be mind blowing, but at least equal last generation’s strong suit. However when you look at the price this drive can be found at, you start to see that it’s not a bad purchase at all. Sitting pretty at £140 makes this Plextor a very attractive little drive.
Pros: Good read speed thanks to SATA III interface, Lots of shelf life improving features, Well priced
Cons: Not the greatest write performance, TRIM execution wasn’t great, but could be it needs a full erase at this point
