The Plextor M3 (256GB) Review @ Anandtech
Plextor as a brand is probably a new acquaintance for most people and I have to admit that I had not heard of Plextor until a couple of months ago. Plextor is more known for their optical disk drives but roughly two years ago, they entered the SSD market. Plextor is now at its third generation of SSDs and we have finally got the chance of reviewing their latest offering: The M3. Based on Marvell's 88SS9174-BLD2 controller, the M3 is a direct competitor to Crucial's popular m4 series. Both obviously utilize in-house firmwares, which can lead to big differences in performance.

While Plextor is a relatively small and unknown brand, I can already hint that their offering is not minuscule in performance when put against SSD giants' drives. How fast is it then? Read on and find out!

The ASUS name has always been synonymous with quality and performance, and the Sabertooth P67 doesn't disappoint.
