5.0 out of 5 stars Superb! 12 Mar 2014
Size Name:128GB|Verified Purchase
I assemble computers for myself, my family, friends and occasionally colleagues - and I have used this drive several times. I specifically buy plextor every time because I am yet to have any item of theirs fail on me. For anyone who has owned an OCZ SSD or anyone who remembers having the IBM Deskstar (or Deathstar as they were more commonly known) will no doubt know what if feels like to lose all your data due to drive failure.

But that is what plextor are all about - reliability. if you can be bothered researching all the specifications on an SSD, I urge you to look out MTBF numbers before you a buy a drive and compare them. This is the Mean Time Between Failures and is measured in millions of hours. If you buy a kingston hyperx ssd, it has approx 1 million hours. Crucial M5 1.2million hours. PNY's XLR8 1.2million hours. Buy the Plextor M5S and its up to 1.5million hours, buy the plextor M5P and its 2.5million hours!! I dare you to find a more reliable drive than the Plextor M5P!! Plextor have statistically one of the lowest returns in the electronics industry and that is a company ethos I can get behind.

This drive (currently at 82.80 at time of review) may be a little more expensive than its competitors, but In my honest opinion you cannot put a price on losing photos/videos/office docs. Therefore I will continue to support plextor the best I can, and will buy this drive or the M5P any chance I get for whoever my build is for. Occasionally I will use corsairs SSDs as they are also very reliable.

Anyway more importantly, I have the M5P in my desktop and the M5S in my laptop and they are both blisteringly fast and I could not recommend them any higher.
