Plextor M5 Pro 128GB with Xtreme Firmware SSD Review - Benchmarks - DiskBench

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 and a SuperSSpeed S301 SLC 128GB SSD to move a 15GB block of data to and from the target drive. This is part of our real world test regiment. Roughly 45GB of data resides on the target drive before the '15GB Block' is transfer. The 15GB Block is the same data we built for the Data on Disk Testing and is a mix of compressible and incompressible data.

Copying data to and from the drives from a secondary drive shows us how fast directory copies from one folder to another. The Plextor M5 Pro does very well when reading a directory from it, but writing the same directory data to the drive, it is a little slower than the 840 Pro and Vector.

 

Looking at other products on the chart like the Vertex 3.20 (with new 20nm Intel NAND) and Kingston V300 (with new 19nm Toshiba Toggle Mode Type B), the M5 Pro is much faster.
