Summary: I just love it when stuff gets smaller and faster. I think in 2008 the first SSD we tested already showed so much promise. Now in 2013 prices have gone down, performance quadrupled and volume sizes have risen. As such it is nice to see and test mSATA SSDs. Right now there isn't a big market for them really though. Most mobile solutions already have some soft of SSD partition and very few motherboards come standard with mSATA.
Summary: The Plextor M5M 256GB mSATA SSD is an amazing product. It has the Marvell 88SS9187 controller and Toshiba Toggle NAND flash, so it's super fast. As well, this drive has true protect data integrity and AES data encryption. Also, it's very reliable with a MTBF of 2.4 million and comes with a 3 year warranty.
