Quoted from Plextor M5 Pro Reviews:Check out these quotes from Plextor M5 Pro reviews & previews
"We can basically write the same conclusion for the Plextor M5 Pro 256GB as we did for the 128GB model. It's the fastest SSD in its category. It set new records in AS SSD and PCMark Vantage, and came up 15 points short for the high score in PCMark 7. Very impressive figures indeed."
"So that brings us to value where a 5year warranty and decent bundle of extras round off the product well... especially so when we consider this drive is cheaper than both the OCZ Vector and Samsung 840 Pro."
"The M5 Pro overtakes its older brother and shows that the new Marvell controller is indeed capable of some good things. While the 128 GB suffers from diminished write speed compared the M3 Pro, the improved read speed and access times make this a better drive overall. The margin isn’t massive, but it’s certainly there. While we don’t yet know pricing information for the M5 Pro, I’d expect it to be similar to the M3 Pro. If the M3 Pro goes down in price I’d suggest picking up that; otherwise the M5 Pro is a fine choice that rivals anything else on the market today."
"The Plextor M5 Pro is an extremely good SSD, it’s very fast, competitively priced, and it’s also very stable."
"The M5 Pro is all new technology at this point and as always there is a maturation process. We know there is practically an infinite number of ways to adjust performance through fine tuning of firmware when it comes to Marvell FPU’s so who knows a shot at taking the performance crown away from SandForce could be just a firmware update away. Here’s the thing if you want top incompressible performance and top multitasking performance which are very high on some user’s lists then you really can’t do much better than the Plextor M5 Pro and it could be a superior choice to SandForce in that scenario. You get SLC type performance with incompressible data from a MLC drive that’s not only a top performer; you get a drive that has reliability as a hallmark of its overall performance."
