Plextor PX-M5M mSATA 256GB SSD Review - Benchmarks - BootRacer

Plextor PX-M5M mSATA 256GB SSD Review

At this point nearly every notebook and ultrabook ships with an mSATA slot. Some products ship with the slot populated and others hide the connector under the keyboard. Upcoming products based on Haswell CPUs will bring more SATA III mSATA ports to notebooks. It's time to find products to populate them.

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.

Our Lenovo W530 that we use for the notebook battery test doesn't reboot faster than 15 seconds regardless of what SSD we put in it. Our next notebook for this testing will utilize UEFI and we'll see the reboot time decrease.

 

The new tests should be published in early August.
