Plextor M6e Black Edition Review (512GB)


The M6e Black Edition makes a fast M.2 SSD available to anyone with a spare PCI-E slot

PCI-E storage is still relatively new and there are few options on the market, so elevated costs are to be expected. Compared to the standard M6e standalone M.2 drive and expansion card, the M6e Black Edition is not a terrible deal. You get a much...

Plextor M6e Black Edition PCIe 256GB Review


Today we look at the Plextor M6e Black Edition. This SSD product supports PCI Express Gen 2 x 2 and potentially delivers more performance than a simple SATA 3 capable Solid State Drive. Rated sequential speeds of the Plextor M6e Black Edition are said...

Marvell controller is equally good with incompressible and compressible data.

twice the price of high grade 250GB SATA 3 drives.

Plextor M6e M.2. SSD Review


One thing that has remained pretty constant since SSDs started to appear, is that the storage interface they connect to appears to struggle to keep pace with the performance levels of the SSD.The SATA2 interface was soon saturated by the SSDs of the...

Plextor M6e PX-AG256M6e (256GB)


The Plextor M6e PX-AG256M6e (256GB) internal solid-state drive is the fastest we've ever tested—but it'll cost you.

PCI-Express (PCIe) interface. Fastest single solid-state drive (SSD) we've tested. Five-year warranty.

Expensive. Needs to be placed well away from high-heat sources, like GPUs, in chassis.

The Plextor M6e PX-AG256M6e (256GB) makes the most sense for customers who either don't have enough SATA ports to mount another drive, or who want a single-drive solution that uses more robust NAND with significantly better performance than current...

Plextor M6e Black Edition 128GB PCIe SSD Review


Plextor's M6e Black Edition is designed for gamers, and performs well in benchmarks. However, we're not convinced that 128GB is enough storage.

Plextor M6e Black Edition PCI Express SSD (PX-256M6e-BK) Review and Ratings


A jazzed-up version of a 2014 favorite, the Black Edition is a more polished M6e, and blazingly fast, even if the price per gigabyte is a touch high by 2015 standards.

Speedy data transfer rates, in excess of the best SATA SSDs ; Striking black-and-red look ; Free RAM-caching software

Expensive, on a per-gigabyte basis ; PCIe x4 drives are coming this year

The original M6e was one of our favorite PC upgrades of 2014. It allowed a user with the PCI Express slots and lanes available to get, in a single drive, speed potential that would otherwise require several SATA SSDs in a RAID arrangement. None of that...

Plextor M6e Black Edition 256GB PCIe SSD Review


The 256GB version of the Plextor M6e Black Edition SSD is more economical than the larger capacity model, but does this PCIe drive bring the wow factor?

Plextor M6e Black Edition 512GB PCIe SSD Review


High-performance SSDs take the PCIe route in 2015. Plextor revamps an existing product to entice gamers and power users to increase the flow of data.

Plextor M6e Black Edition Review


Since its introduction last year, we have been very impressed by Plextors M6 range of SSDs. Whether it be the SATA based model, or the M.2 variant (which is our go-to drive for testing that platform) the performance and stability have been top notch....

The first thing we need to note about the M6e Black Edition is how it affects existing M6 series owners, especially those who have the original M6e. Basically, at the drive level this is the same product. Same speeds, same features (including support...
