Solid State Drives are slowly but surely catching on in popularity as the price point starts to drop, all the while seeing an increase in capacity. Plextor’s latest addition to the SSD race would be the M5S Series Solid State Drive, where it is touted to deliver an enhanced and sustained read/write speed up to 73,000/70,000 IOPS. This would mean the M5S Series can perform faster compared to its award-winning predecessors in terms of overall enhanced performance.
I suppose the inclusion of its exclusive firmware technology also goes some way in helping Plextor achieve such performance levels from the M5S Series Solid State Drive. Some of the exclusive firmware technology include Instant Restore, Global Wear Leveling, and Bad Block Management. There is also the True Speed feature to consider, which is Plextor’s exclusive high-speed sustaining and non-declining performance technology that boasts of random read/write speed up to 73,000/70,000 IOPS as well as the continuous read/write speed up to 520/390 MB/s.
You will be able to pick up the Plextor M5S Series Solid State Drive from the middle of July onwards, where 64GB, 128GB and 256GB capacities will retail for $99.99, $159.99 and $299.99, respectively.
