Product Description

Size Name:Capacity- 128GB

Product Description

The Plextor M5M is a high-performance mSATA 6 Gb/s SSD specifically engineered to give ultrabook, tablet PC, and other JEDEC MO-300 form factor users the speed and low power consumption benefits of the newest generation SSD technology.

High Performance

The combination of the latest Marvell 88SS9187 controller and True Speed technology creates M5M the enhanced performance and reliability. The True Speed high-performance technology delivers real world benefits and prevents SSD speed drop, automatically returning performance to like-new speeds.

•Latest server-grade Marvell® 88SS9187 controller ensures fast and reliable operation for all applications.

•Sequential mode performance of up to 540MB/s read and up to 430MB/s write, boosts the responsiveness of ultrathin laptop and tablet PCs.

•Random read speeds of up to 80K IOPS and write speeds up to 77K IOPS at 4K file size, give maximum real-world performance benefits.

•Advanced True Speed technology provides long-term sustained performance for all data types and prevents speed drop.

Enterprise-grade Double-data Protection

Plextor SSD has a unique True Protect protection system to protect the integrity of your data. To confirm that each piece of data is correctly stored with one hundred percent accuracy the newest 128-bit error correction code is used. For data confidentiality, the drive uses hardware in the US Government AES-validated Marvell controller to provide secure 256-bit full-drive encryption.

Data Integrity

The combination of the latest Marvell® 88SS9187 6Gb/s SATA controller’s powerful 128 Random Bit/2K BCH ECC (Error-Correction Codes), and the exclusive Plextor firmware based Robust Data Hold-out Algorithm gives the M5M unequaled data integrity.

ASE Data Encryption

AES, the U.S. government standard encryption technology, is divided into three levels 128, 192, 256. The Plextor M5M uses the highest level of encryption - 256 bits. This level of SSD encryption is highly secure compared to BIOS or software based encryption and offers strong protection if the computer is stolen.

High Energy Efficient with DEVSLP Support

•Supports the SATA Device Sleep standard incorporating the new DEVSLP state allowing the SSD to communicate in sleep mode.

•With the DEVSLP mode, the M5M can reduce the power consumption to only 1 mW, and resumes from DEVSLP mode only in 100ms.

•In order to meet the needs of consumers, the M5M delivers an effective operating and long battery life of the mobile device.

Testing

•Extensively tested during development using the latest test equipment and a rigorous multistage testing procedure.

•Passed Plextor’s enterprise-grade Zero Error standard of 500 hours of testing of 400 drives without errors.

•Calculated mean time between failures (MTBF) is an impressive 2.4 million hours, showing the M5M’s reliability

•48hr Sustained Read and Write Test Two days continuous 4K file read / write test, zero error pass requirement.

•4000 Times Idle Test–Sleep and Hibernation Test After 24 hrs read & write SSD enters sleep (S3) mode and is woken after 5 minutes, repeated for hibernation (S4) mode, zero error pass requirement.

•250 Times Power Cycle–Cold and Warm Boot Tests Continuous cold boot and warm boot cycles 250 times, zero error pass requirement.

Design for Ultrabook

With its ultra mini size, light weight and low power consumption, the M5M is especially suitable for ultra portable on-the-go computing device.

Compact Size

•No outer case.

•Designed for the limited space in ultra portable devices.

•Highly compact JEDEC MO-300 form factor incorporating an mSATA 6GB/s connection.

•Light weight (9g max.) and mini size (50.8 x 29.8 x 3.6 mm), only an eighth of the size of the standard 2.5 inch SSD drive.

Low Power Consumption

•The low power design can consume less power and provide extended battery life.

This is one of the fastest SSD replacement drive on the market and a slot-in replacement for the Sandisk 128GB SSD found in several ultrabooks, including my Samsung Series 9. Windows 7 boot time from cold start to login prompt is now around 8 seconds. If you read about the drive on the Net you will also find that it is one of the most heavily tested before leaving the factory which should mean it is one of the most reliable.

To copy across the file system I clipped the new SSD into a "Syba mSATA SSD to 2.5 inch SATA Adapter" (also from Amazon) and put it into an external USB SATA drive enclosure which I then connected to the ultrabook. I then created a bootable USB memory stick containing Clonezilla and used that to boot the uptrabook and mirror the entire contents of the internal 128GB drive onto the external Plextor drive.

If you have a Series 9 then opening the case is relatively easy - undo all the visible screws on the base then gently lift away prising very gently close to the back plastic hinge which is held in place by small plastic clips which pop release. Remove the sticky damping pad from the Sandisk drive, unscrew the drive and substitute the Plextor,and finally replace the damping pad. The laptop booted straight up into Windows and simply required a reboot once it had recognised a change of drive.

The only remaining issue was how to create a new drive letter. As Samsung had created four primary partitions (the maximum) the only choice I had was to delete one partition. I chose to delete the recovery partition as I already have a full backup of the original drive configuration and the Sandisk drive itself as a backup. I could then create a new 140GB partition. And that was it. One faster SSD drive with substantially more data capacity.

Highly recommended

Got the drive, put it in my Y580. USB Boot and installed Windows 7 Ultimate without a problem.

I leave the whole drive as one 250GB partition and ran ATTO benchmark immediately
My previous setup is 7200RPM HDD with 32GB mSATA SSD drive for Intel Quick Response caching (or some technology that puts the frequently used files on the SSD so it was already very fast after 1 week of use. But when I get this SSD I mean it is FAST!

Read/Write speed increases gradually from 0.5Kb to 65Kb transfer size. From 512 to 8Mb transfer sizes the READ/WRITE speed saturates at 438Mb/s WRITE and 535Mb/s READ. Yes, that's as close to advertised as you can get and quite close to saturating the SATA III bandwidth also

I am very happy with the purchase of this item.

Bought this for use in an Intel BOXDC3217BY Barebone Mini-PC (Intel Core i3 3217U, Intel-HD) with Ubuntu 13.10 installed and it worked first time with no problems at all. Allows Ubuntu 13.10 to start and shutdown in around 5 seconds. Amazing!

I decided on the 64GB M5M micro SATA SSD, as I was fairly priced for one of the fastest mSSD around..! I was not disappointed this is a superb addition to any pc/mac/laptop/nuc etc.. and for my 1year old Dell Vostro 470 desktop
No install problems,just a minor BIOS adjustment, to tell machine to boot from it.
Well chuffed.

Oogle " fastest mSATA SSD, the result is around 6 in vs Intel SSD"

Very fast boot 14secs cold 7pro. I would also say remember if your running more than 8GB of RAM , well you don't really need page filling, however I set mine to around 2GB in case of memory leaks.
Plus if your running 16GB RAM and don't adjust PF you'll lose around 32GB of the drives total around 59GB.
And I would say 64Gb is around the minimum size to use as boot drive.
Very fast, I know it will fail at a predetermined time so I backup weekly only takes 3min...
Don't hesitate buy one and yes the Screws are in the pack.

I got a new laptop and the main thing bottle necking it was the factory hdd that came already installed, once i put the mSATA in and re-installed windows my laptop runs so much better and smoother! The start up is amazing and the price is also a great bargain! I would recommend this product to anyone! I have seen some people say that you dont get screws with this product, in fact this mSATA does include screws so you have everything you need to start using it straight away! Best thing ive ever brought!

I bought this for my Dell computer. It works perfectly as main drive, letting Windows start in 15 seconds. Great disk and good capacity at a very good price.
Just one little con: It doesn't include screws, so you'll need to find them elsewhere.

Bought this to upgrade the 128GB drive that came with my Samsung 13inch Ultrabook. Works very well although when I tried to use the Samsung migration software that kept giving an error code. However the Samsung disk copy software worked spot on so all's well. Very fast drive boot up time from scratch to Windows is about 5 seconds.

Works fine in NUC devices, doing some research I've found that Sandforce controllers seems to be a bit dodgy so this is a very good choice (uses a Marvell controller). For those installing these in computers/motherboards that doesn't support IDE mode you can update firmware in Windows using Plextor's utility. Mine came with the newest firmware available. Supports TRIM etc as you'd expect and good performance overall.
