According to Yaping Zheng, product manager at Plextor, "The M6M is all about real-world performance. We've optimized this compact SSD to deliver the best possible computing experience. We used the latest generation of components, then included a new version of True Speed for even smoother long-term operation, and focused on increasing the random speeds to give the fastest everyday operating performance".

Beyond performance improvements, the M6M includes several key features including better energy efficiency. When the notebook goes in sleep mode, the SSD reduces its power consumption to 2 mW to extend battery life, and can resume in 100 ms. Also, the M6M includes Plextor's exclusive True Protect technology which supports advanced data integrity checks and 256-bit AES full disk encryption.

The Plextor M6M SSD will be available in the second quarter of 2014 in 128 GB, 256 GB, and 512 GB capacities.
