Plextor PX-256M5S review

 

We have previously reviewed the Plextor PX-256M2S, a high-performance SATA 6Gbps SSD when it launched, even if its circa-430MBps speed has now been surpassed by more recent SSDs.

The Plextor PX-256M5S is not widely available at time of review, but we have seen it on sale for under £190 in 256GB capacity. Considering its first-division performance, it should make a compelling choice as a high-performance upgrade for any modern...

Plextor PX-256M5S

 

Like and SSD, it is very fast, but I suspect faster than others I have used. I like the aluminium casing - I can write date used, etc on it!

None so far.

Plextor PX-256M5S

 

Really fast (as expected from an SSD) Nice brushed metal finish, generally seems like a high quality build. Easy to install

Still quite expensive compared to competitors like Samsung. However I don't know if it performs better, so price may be justified somewhat.

Works fine, much quicker than a hard drive with moving parts

Non realty considering the present development of these devices

Plextor PX-256M5S

 

Very quick drive Comes with a bracket so that it can fit into normal, 3.5" hard drive bays Scores 7.8 out of 7.9 with Windows Experience Index

More expensive than drives of a similar capacity, but according to reviews is more reliable and faster

Plextor PX-256M5S

 

Very fast (faster than other SSD's I own), 5yr Warranty, easy to fit, Easy Win8 install, quality brand.

Cost per GB, Not the huge increase in speed over my Seagate Hybrid HDD I would have liked.
