Product Overview

The M5S Series SSD continues to deliver the highest quality storage performance in the industry. Continuing with the legacy and award-winning performance of its predecessors, the M5S SSD is consistently faster and reliable. Featuring Plextor’s True Speed Technology, exclusive firmware, and Marvell server-grade controller chip, the M5S SSD is capable to deliver stable data transfer speeds over the long period. The M5S Series PX-256M5S SSD clocks in random read/write speeds up to 73,000/70,000 IOPS with sequential read/write speeds up to 520/390 MB/s. The performance is consistent even when this SSD deals with non-compressible data such as encoded video, MP3 audio, or JPG images. In actual every-day computing environment, it is able to achieve and sustain the like-new performance even after intense activity giving users the fast storage they need to boot, save, and load almost instantaneously.

The M5S SSD goes through the rigorous tests and is of the highest quality. Plextor’s exacting requirements for quality control mean that all SSDs must meet high standards and expectation. Each M5S drive is first subjected to a high-temperature burn-in test and then undergoes accelerated real-world simulation testing. This ensures that all drives provide long-term stability and performance.

The M5S SSD performance is never compromised. It offers stability with the constant high performance your PC needs to operate at speed. The M5S is available in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB capacities.

Lightning Fast Performance that Doesn’t Slow Down
The Plextor M5S Series PX-256M5S achieves maximum speed performance during everyday operations - random read speed up to 73,000 IOPS and random write up to 70,000 IOPS. It supports SATA 6Gb/s standard for maximum transfer speeds and compatible with SATA 3Gb/s and SATA 1.5Gb/s. Just replace system hard drive for substantially faster boot, application opening, and shutdown times, saves time when loading and saving large files, and smooth system operation during autosaves.

Highest Reliability with True Speed Technology
Exclusive True Speed technology is designed to prevent drastic drops in read/write speeds that normally occur with SSDs after a prolonged use or when data become heavily fragmented. The M5S Series SSD maintains high speed performance at a like-new level throughout the life of the SSD.

Continuous High Performance
Sustained like-new performance eliminates the sharp drop in performance seen in many SSD devices after periods of real-world use. Exclusive firmware with outstanding Instant Restore feature, advanced Global Wear Leveling and Bad Block Management functions allows the SSD to operate at full potential. The Plextor M5S Series PX-256M5S supports SMART prediction and TRIM commands. Performance optimization and garbage collection also operate independently of the operating system.

Ideal For Workstations
Speed increases massively in storage performance over hard-drive technology along with reduced power consumption, lower noise, and less heat. Controller design ensures high stability and performance during multitasking. The M5S Series SSD also delivers constant performance when working with non-compressible data such as common video, audio, or photo file types. Those features make the M5S Series SSD ideal for use in audio/video workstations as it can provide fast loading and saving times for large files and make the processing of editing far smoother and easier.
