Who knew Plextor made SSDs? Well they do and they’re sitting pretty with a new SATA III drive. It’s part of the M2 range and is known fully as the Plextor PX-128M2S. There’s plenty of shelf life improving features that are all well and good, but you’re here for the performance numbers. So without furtherado, I present to you my findings.
