Plextor's Plextool has been around for a while, but was recently updated to enable PlexTurbo on the M6 Pro SSD. The initial screen is mainly for information, showing various information about the Plextor drive in the system.

The Plextool INFO tab acts as a glossary for the different information areas in the software.

Plextor calls secure erase, 'Secure Format'.

You can use the software to update the firmware of the SSD in just a few short clicks.

A quick diagnostic scan shows read and write performance.

SMART details are easily sifted through, but unlike the Corsair software, there isn't a glossary or pass / fail area to tell new users what you are actually looking at.

When you click on the PlexTurbo tab, you are presented with a splash screen right away. You have to click through this to get to the main screen to enable PlexTurbo.

Enabling PlexTurbo is as simple as clicking the button, and then restarting your PC for the action to take effect.
