Plextor PX-64M3 Solid State Drive (64GB)

The Plextor 2.5-inch 64M3 solid state drive (SSD) helps improve the performance of the computer and it supports SATA 3 (6Gbps). You can easily replace your drive for any laptop or desktop computers and its price is razonable. PX-64M3 solid state drive provides read/write speeds up to 525/445 MB/s in sequential mode and up to 70,000/65,000 IOPS in random mode.


PX-64M3 Solid State Drive

Overview

The M3 features exclusive firmware with True Speed, including Plextor’s proprietary Bad Block Management, Global Wear Leveling and Instant Restore technologies that optimize performance. True Speed is designed to prevent drastic drops in read/write speeds that normally occur with SSDs after prolonged use or when data becomes heavily fragmented. True Speed technology will maintain the M3’ high performance and read/write speeds at like-new levels throughout the life of the drive.

Plextor strives to exceed industry standards with rigorous benchmark testing; before leaving the factory, each Plextor SSD is put through a 20-hour high temperature burn-in test and an intense simulation of real world environments. As a result, Plextor SSDs have a 0.59% average annual failure rate, which is one of the lowest in the industry. The M3 offers a perfect solution for businesses, power users, serious gamers, system integrators and anyone who demands a drive with high efficiency and fast performance. The M3 is available in 64GB, 128GB, 256GB and 512GB capacities.

Plextor M3 Series PX-64M3 2.5″ 64GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) is available at Newegg for $119.99

Features

Exclusive True Speed Technology
True Speed is an exclusive technology providing consistent high performance in real-life computing environments for the lifetime of the product. True Speed distinguishes Plextor SSDs from other SSD products because of sustained read/write speeds throughout the lifetime of the product.
High Quality Components for Maximum Performance
Plextor M3 64GB SSD features server-grade Marvell 88SS9174 controller chip for read/write speeds of up to 520MB/s and 175MB/s in sequential mode and 55,000 and 40,000 IOPS for random read/write operations at 4K file size. Using the latest generation of the SATA 6Gbps interface, M3 is backward compatible with SATA 3Gb/s and SATA 1.5Gb/s. The drive also uses the latest 24nm synchronous MLC NAND flash modules with Toggle mode support from Toshiba to further enhance product reliability and performance. The DDR3 DRAM cache transfers data faster and helps extend lifetime of the product.
Consistent Speed Levels Even After Intensive Usage
Smart firmware combines three advanced technologies – Bad Block Management, Global Wear Leveling, and Instant Restore – to keep performance at sustained level. Bad Block Management and Global Wear Leveling optimize the way data is written on the drive, while the unique Instant Restore technique works overcome to the problem of declining speed after a period of usage. M3 also supports advanced functions, such as S.M.A.R.T. failure prediction, the TRIM command, NCQ optimization and superior Garbage Collection, further increasing performance and reliability.
Immaculate Quality
Every Plextor SSD is built to exacting standards and thoroughly tested to ensure that it is manufactured to their impeccable quality demands. These include 20-hour High Temperature burn-in lest and the rigors of the industry’s premier-level FLEXSTAR testing machine to simulate the real working environment. Plextor SSDs are of highest quality, as borne out by the 0.5% average annual failure rate (AFR), the lowest in the industry.
Software & Accessory
Includes Disk Cloning & Backup Utility Software and 3.5” mounting bracket with screws for use with desktop PCs and most laptops.
