Plextor PX-M5M mSATA 256GB SSD Review - Benchmarks - Test System Setup and ATTO Baseline Performance

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.

Desktop Test System

Lenovo W530 - Mobile Workstation

 

 

We use two systems for SSD testing. The desktop runs a majority of the tests and the Lenovo W530 runs the notebook power tests as well as the real-world file transfer benchmark.

 

 

ATTO Baseline Performance

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 2.34

 

ATTO is used by many disk manufacturers to determine the read and write speeds that will be presented to customers.

The 4-channel design takes a toll on the write performance. The Plextor PX-M5M delivers nearly 440MB/s of sequential write performance. The sequential read performance of nearly 537MB/s on our test system is quite good compared to many of the other mSATA products we've tested.
