Specifications, Pricing and Availability
Even though the new Xtreme has a new model number, PX-xxxM5Pro (the original M5 Pro was PX-xxxM5P), we didn't find an updated spec sheet on Plextor's website.
The drive uses the latest Marvell 88SS9187 controller and pairs it with the latest Toshiba 19nm Toggle NAND. The controller is just as interesting as the new flash. The 88SS9187 now supports AES 256-bit encryption and a new ECC algorithm that increases error recoverability.
Plextor has three capacity sizes for Xtreme including 128GB, 256GB and finally a large 512GB model. The xxx in the model name is the capacity size; today we're looking at PX-256M5Pro.
Plextor ships Xtreme with a five year warranty, desktop adapter bracket and a nice software package that includes backup software. We did manage to finally track down Xtreme for sale after a long search. You can't look for the drive under Plextor M5 Pro Xtreme. You have to use Plextor M5P Xtreme. It's a bit of a pain, but now that you know the task will be a lot easier.
Newegg has the 256GB drive in stock for $219.99, a $10 premium over the original M5 Pro 256GB.
