According to Yaping Zheng, product manager at Plextor, "The new M6S gives desktop and notebook users the ultimate system upgrade. Its combination of speed and efficiency makes it an ideal replacement for a hard drive. By installing an M6S rather than a traditional hard drive, Windows 7 boots in a quarter of the time, applications start quickly, and saving and loading become almost instant. Our tests even show that notebook users can gain an extra 30 minutes of battery time by using an M6S".

The M6S will come in a thinner 7 mm form factor, allowing it to fit into thin notebooks. Availability of the new drives begins in the second quarter of 2014 with 128 GB, 256 GB, and 512 GB capacities.

Check back on April, 10th 2014 to see the TweakTown review of the M6S.
