Very fast SSD, heatsink actually works Verified OwnerVerified Owner

Pros

Extremely fast
MLC
Compatible even with older motherboards
Competent warranty coverage in Canada
Cons
Not as fast as Samsung
Windows-only firmware updates
Summary
This is a very fast PCIe 3.0 x4 NVMe SSD. I've benchmarked it at 2.2 GB/s reads, 762.9 MB/s writes. Unfortunately reviews show it's slower than the Samsung 950, and my own benchmarking shows it's slower than an older Samsung SM951 (AHCI version) at 2.5 GB/s reads, 794.3 MB/s writes. But then again there is actually warranty support in Canada unlike for Samsung.

It uses a flagship-class controller and MLC flash.

I have not tested this, but other reviews noted that the heatsink actually helps despite it being very thin. It keeps temperatures down enough that there's no effect from thermal throttling, which is easily tested because Plextor has a bare, heatsink-less version of this SSD which is otherwise identical and does throttle.

I am very pleased at the compatibility with my older ASRock Z97 Extreme6 motherboard. It has a PCIe 3.0 x4 slot (just about unique to Z97 motherboards) and NVMe support. In fact this drive is on ASRock's qualified storage devices for this board. I didn't really have to do anything to get it running - it doesn't show up as an M.2 device but it does show up as an NVMe device. Even on legacy boot, I can install Linux to it and boot from it. Some Linux tools need to catch up (Disks shows it as a "block device" rather than a drive and I can't run S.M.A.R.T. tests on it) but it works just fine.

I could never boot off the Samsung SM951 using this board. It's an early PCIe 3.0 x4 SSD and was intended for OEMs - it apparently lacks device-level drivers.

I'm disappointed that Plextor has Windows-only .EXE firmware updates though. This is unlike their universal support for their M6e predecessor. I'm hoping they fix this eventually.

So I finally have what I bought this board for - a very fast PCIe 3.0 x4 NVMe SSD that I can actually boot from.
