  • Summary: Que penser de ce nouveau venu de Plextor. Et bien, nous serions tentés de dire qu'il n'est pas mauvais, sans pour autant être le meilleur. Plextor nous propose ici un produit relativement équilibré pour un modèle 128 Go. Il est parfois en haut de tableau, parfois en milieu de tableau, mais ses performances donnent toujours satisfactions, même si les SF-2200 le mangent parfois et notamment sur le 4 Ko en écriture aléatoire.
  • Pros: Performances globales, Débits fichiers imcompressibles, 32 nm, TRIM
  • Cons: Ecriture petits fichiers, Prix
