Plextor PX-M5S 256GB Solid State Drive Review - Benchmarks - HD Tune Pro

Plextor skips M4 and jumps straight to the M5 Series. The first product in this new series brings IMFT flash in and with it we should see a lower price.

HD Tune Pro gives us accurate read, write and access time results and for the last couple of years has been gaining popularity amongst reviewers. It is now considered a must have application for storage device testing.

We included the Plextor M3 in our charts for today and also reordered the archive results to place all of the Plextor drives at the top. In the sequential real test across the drives we found the new M5S a little slower on average when compared with the M3 class of drives with Toshiba flash.
