Plextor M5 Pro 128GB with Xtreme Firmware SSD Review

Plextor has given its M5 Pro 128GB SSD the Xtreme firmware treatment. We put it up against the 128GB kings from Samsung (840 Pro) and OCZ (Vector) to see how it goes.

Note: In this test we use the Lenovo W530 Mobile Workstation loaded with an operating system and several program files. The data on the drive at the time of the test is 45GB. The second test, 50GB Free, was ran with the drives filled with block data until only 50GB of free capacity remained.

All of our 128GB SSDs perform around the same in our Lenovo W530. We may move this test over to a different notebook.

 

My new Samsung 7-Series restarts in half the time of the W530, but I also have to take the notebook all the way apart to get to the HDD tray. Chances are this test won't be updated till our Intel Haswell notebooks arrive later this year.
