Manufacturer's Description

Fast Just Got Faster

All of Plextor’s Solid State Drives feature the SATA 6Gb/s interface along with the industry’s most advanced Marvell Controller. Plextor’s SSD seek/read/write speeds now allow reading and transfer of data many times faster than SSDs with SATA II interface.

Rock Solid Stability

With Plextor’s Instant Restore Technology, problems of slower performance often associated with prolonged usage are virtually eliminated. In addition, Plextor supports Windows 7 TRIM out of the box. This advanced garbage collection technique reorganizes data to maximize the number of free cells and keep data transfer rate performance “like new.”

Maximizing SSD Life

Plextor’s 512MB DDR3 cache buffer helps stabilize the SSD—reducing seek/read/write time of flash memory and providing a quicker transfer rate and prolonging the product lifespan. Dynamic Wear Leveling Technology averages out the write cycles on each cell which further increases SSD product lifespan by reducing memory wipe-outs.
