Plextor M5 Pro Xtreme 256GB SSD
Here we get our first look at the Plextor M5 Pro Xtreme. Plextor used the same case with this model that they used on the last. It's a nice aluminum 7mm form factor package that allows the Xtreme to work in a number of ultrabooks that require a 7mm z-height.
The back of the drive has the new model number, PX-256M5Pro. It also has the serial number and capacity size.
The 7mm z-height uses the same mounting positions as a standard 9.5mm drive designed for notebooks and desktops.
Plextor includes a 2.5" to 3.5" desktop adapter bracket with the drives.
The real difference between this model and the original incarnation is inside the case. The same controller is used as is the same 512MB DRAM. The NAND is different, now Toshiba 19nm Toggle with 16KB page sizes. The NAND is also TSOP instead of BGA.
There are 16 NAND packages all together, eight on each side.
