Plextor announces M2S 256GB SSD with 480Mbps read speeds

first_imgIf you are in the market for a fast, high capacity SSD, then there’s a short list of companies offering a solution. This week it looks as though Plextor has joined that list.While Plextor has offered SSD products in the past, they haven’t really been performance drives. The latest line of M2S certainly are, though.Three models are being offered:64GB 370/110 Mbps128GB 420/210 Mbps256GB 480/330 MbpsAll drives have a Marvell 88SS9174 controller chip, a 6Gb/s interface, Windows 7 TRIM support, and Plextor’s Instant Restore Technology to ensure performance over a long lifespan. You also get the peace of mind of a 3-year warranty.Unfortunately we won’t know what the pricing will be until March when they are released. Initially the M2S range will be available in Europe only, but we suspect a U.S. launch if these drives turn out to perform well alongside the competition, especially the high-end 256GB model.Read more at the Plextor press releaselast_img read more
