Plextor Boasts Boldly About M2P Limited Edition SSD

Well, this is an odd bird. Plextor has just announced a new limited edition solid state drive, the M2P SSD with "True Speed" offering the industry's quickest read and write speeds. The drive is capable of random read/write speeds of 70,000 / 65,000 IOPS and sequential read/write speeds up to 500 Mb/s and 440 Mb/s. But then, it gets a little strange. Plextor goes off the rails a bit with the following statement: "This clearly makes the M2P the fastest SSD currently available." Then, it continues: "Speed is good but sustainable speed is even better. And although no specific information is available, word has it that Plextor is serious about the limited edition status."


That's seriously in the company's official announcement. That strangeness aside, the M2P is powered by the server grade Marvell 88SS9174 controller chip supporting a SATA III 6Gb/s interface and Toshiba-sourced NAND. Plextor's True Speed technology also features exclusive firmware with Instant Restore, Global Wear Leveling, and Bad Block Management. Plextor will begin shipping the M2P in late-October and are available in 128GB (PX-128M2P, $239.99) and 256GB versions (PX-256M2P, $449.99). Mystery and intrigue are provided free of charge.

I remember when Plextor was the absolute best in CD/DVD drives,....years ago. All of their stuff was incredibly expensive, but they really were the best. Then upstart companies started to give them a run for the money and seriously selling for less. Buying a good quality DVD burner is a piece of cake these days, there are so many to choose from and Plextor doesn't even make the short list anymore because they still cost too much.

While their SSD's Specs are good, how is their warranty?

We already have some excellent companies that provide SSD's that are proven to be reliable. I'll stick to one of them.
