PlexTurbo is found in Plextool, Plextor's software package that works with every Plextor SSD. The main screen gives the status of the drive and shows the amount of space used and free. It also shows the drive health, as well as a temperature reading. The last bit on the initial screen shows if TRIM is enabled in Windows.

If your Plextor SSD was a secondary drive, you could use the software to secure erase the Plextor SSD.

Even with your Plextor SSD as the boot drive, you can update the firmware on the drive in just a few easy clicks. No more DOS disks and command lines to remember.

We already had PlexTurbo enabled, but if the feature is not activated, the screen looks the same just with an enable button replacing the disable button. Sadly, fireworks don't shoot from your PC when you hit the button. It's a pretty uneventful experience, but you do have to restart your system after enabling the PlexTurbo software. Plextool will force the restart so you won't forget.
