Hello awesome. These are super fast and should be super reliable given Plextor's track record on Marvell based SSDs.
1600 Total SSD's handled between two jobs. Plextor M3s, M5s, Intel 320s, Crucial M550/MX100, and Samsung 470/830/840/850s are reliable (1 intel 8MB bug failure, two M5s failures). 3 M4 errors, 1 failure among ~75 of them. Sandforce controlled drives, 13 RMAs among ~200 units.
This is one of the best drives for the money right now.
Using stable Marvel controller optimized for higher performance this 7mm speed demon is faster than proven Crucial M4 and as stable as Intel 520 SSDs with new 19nm NAND chips, that could rival performance/quality/warranty with the likes of the Samsung 840 Pro.
Tax in CA takes some heat off the deal
Plextor have pretty weak marketing campaign and their products draw attention of the narrow circles of enthusiasts.
Not every MLC drive has bragging rights for 5yrs Warranty and 2.4 millions of hours until predicted failure (MTBF)
I am currently dealing with Plextor tech support regarding a failed SSD after less than 6 months.
Failure can happen, tough luck.
But how they are dragging their feet and dealing with it is ridiculous. I had plenty of drives fail over the decades and other manufacturers take ownership and deal with it quickly. Here I still have no idea what's the plan or if they are even going to take responsibility for the defect. No more Plextor. Thanks.
