Plextor PX-256M5P

 

The Plextor PX-256MP is one of the fastest SSDs we've tested yet, but not necessarily worth its price premium.

Strong overall performance, particularly in random workloads.

More expensive than other 256GB SSDs.

Fast, reliable SSD

 

When you update your firmware with these Plextor drives, make sure you turn on IDE instead of ACH in the bios, then switch it back after you complete your firmware update.

Fast. Its synthetic benchmark scores are near the top on several different tests, although it is bested by the Samsung 840 on some. It has more consistent read/write arguably than most of the others. Real world performance difference won't exist since...

Price used to be a bit high, but the sale right now makes it well worth it
