Plextor lines four M9Pe SSDs up behind a tame PCIe switch to make an extreme product that no one needs.
The Plextor M9Pe comes armed with high-performance and RGB LEDs. Today we get to see what the hype is all about.
Plextor joins the portable SSD rat race with a slim and attractive design. The new EX1 promises high performance but planar TLC paired with a DRAMless Marvell controller tells a different story.
Plexor's mainstream S3 product line gives us our first look at Silicon Motion's SM2254 controller and SK hynix's 14nm TLC.
NVMe continues to gain ground on SATA. The technology promises to increase performance and reduce costs, but the ecosystem isn't fully implemented.
Plextor launched an aggressive attack on the NVMe market with the new M8Pe that comes with three various cooling options and a plethora of capacities.
Plextor introduced a new series of SSDs to attack the entry-level consumer market. The first product in the S2 family is the S2C, which might be one of the better low-cost SSDs released in 2016.
Plextor is back in the game with its M7V SSDs and we take a look at the entry-level M7V to see how it compares with other TLC-based SSDs.
Value-oriented shoppers in the market for an SSD don't have to settle for TLC-based drives. Plextor found another way to reduce prices with two-bit-per-cell MLC: just use flash with smaller cells.
Plextor's M7 product line is taking shape with the M7e at the top-end and a newly announced M7V batting cleanup.
Plextor's new M6 Pro SSD comes with PlexTurbo software, which accelerates the SSD by using the system's memory.
Plextor's next-gen M6e is a M.2 2280 PCIe SSD combined with a x4 PCIe adapter. You probably don't have a M.2 PCIe slot yet, but Plextor hopes their Marvell 9183 powered SSD will find a home in enthusiast systems thanks to their adapter.
Plextor is launching two new SSDs under its M6 banner. The M6S and M6M lean on Toshiba's A19 flash and Marvell's updated 9188 silicon. Together, both components (plus some custom firmware work) should augment value and speed in a couple of form factors.
The company's prototype SSD offers a lower cost and longer longevity than comparable MLC based SSDs.
Hot on the heels of its M5S, Plextor sent us the M5 Pro. Loaded with hot new technologies like 19 nm NAND and the latest Marvell controller, the company's flagship was certainly worth waiting for. How does it do against the established incumbents, though?
