...and backed by super-strict testing along with the industry's lowest return rate, Plextor positions the 256GB M6 Pro, priced at £120, as the drive for the enthusiast.
Plextor comes to the premium consumer SSD party armed with the M6 Pro drive. Touting impressive credentials and longevity on paper, performance falls in line with the Crucial M500 and a little below the hynix SH910A we have tested previously.
Available in a wide range of capacities and backed by a super-strict testing regime along with the industry's lowest return rate, Plextor positions the M6 Pro 256GB, priced at £120, as the drive for the enthusiast.
Though solid on all fronts, aggressive pricing from rivals such as Crucial obscures the value metric - performance-equivalent drives are available for sub-£90 - so whether the premium is worth it depends upon what value you place on Plextor's quality control and five-year warranty.
In a market littered with good SSDs, the Plextor M6 Pro becomes another to add to that ever-growing shortlist.
