As we mentioned throughout this preview, Plextor is still working on the M6 PRO, but as you can see, the performance is already up to the marketing specs. It shouldn't be too much longer before this product is finished and e-tailers have stock to sell.
This is an exciting product for Plextor. The company has always billed itself as a premium SSD builder, and I think that was sort of lost over the last couple of years. It's not that Plextor's products faded in either performance or quality, other companies just caught up to the same position that Plextor has always been at. From what we've seen with the new M6 PRO, it appears Plextor is ready to make another leap forward.
I don't think many people actually care about the color of the aluminum case or the history of champagne aluminum in Japan, but it's a nice touch nonetheless. The product packaging has increased in quality too, but again, this will be lost on many people. The accessory package though, paired with Plextool and the new PlexTurbo feature is difficult to ignore. Plextor has also added AES 256-bit encryption for what it's worth as well.
The feature we're more excited about is DEVSLP, the technology that reduces the SSDs power draw and gives notebook users additional battery life. Notebooks, even desktop systems, with Intel's built-in HD graphics are powerful enough to play some games on and more gamers are converting over to portable gaming platforms. DEVSLP will help tame power consumption, even while gaming.
Stay tuned for a full review of all four capacity size Plextor M6 PRO drives in the coming weeks. We're just one firmware flash away from a retail product.
