If you have yet to read about our new worst case / recovery test, please feel free to do so. We are oversimplifying a complicated test in this section.

 

At its worst, the Plextor M6e draws us back to the HD Tune Pro test where we ran a sequential test after a light load of random writes. The write performance dropped rapidly and to a very low level. We see that in our newest test.

 

The M6e recovers quickly, but Plextor has always run an aggressive garbage collection scheme.
