R B Inc
Experience: 2 Years
- incredible speeds, esp on RAID 0
- can get it for super cheap on sales.
Bought 2 of these for RAID 0 (motherboard) on my main PC. Works fine, been a few years still running strong, no noticeable difference in speeds. I get upwards of 1100MB/s sustained on RAID. I love it so much, it still performs fast enough that the drives are not a bottleneck unlike basically all HDDs in fast PCs.

Experience: 75 Weeks
Very fast and it is noticeable visually when booting or loading large videos/pics.
Should've bought 2 - one for Win7 and one for Steam. Doesn't come with 3.5 to 2.5 drive thingamajig
Awesome brand, Plextor drives have a great reputation and my experience with this SSD still surprises me when switching between computers. Sadly the price isn't falling as much for the larger capacity since I want to put my Steam folder on an SSD. This drive is doing all I want with speed, no configuration necessary (just install with the other drives disconnected first) and hasn't caused me any issues in the over a year I've had it.

Experience: 15 Days

- great saving price
- good ssd from a serious company
- Nothing so far
Bought two to replace a failed crucial (the second one this year...).

Experience: 1 Months
 Verified Owner
I've had this Plextor SSD for about 1 month and it has been solid. The sequential read and writes are excellent
none so far
The Plextor drives have very good controllers and it is a good SSD

Good price on sale
Marvell controller
None as of yet
This drive was my first step into SSD land. Very disconcerting the lack of sound a SSD doesn't make but everything seems snappy and zippy so I give it 4 stars!

Experience: 6 Days
Ease of installation with Windows 8
Plextor's reputation for making reliable SSDs
Not the fastest SSD out there
Used one of these SSDs in a HTPC build for my brother. Worked like a charm with Windows 8. Make sure you have AHCI mode set in your bios, which is the default option in most newer motherboards.

Experience: 1 Days

Very fast
Easy install
No screws
Extremely satisfied with initial thoughts of this drive. Will update  if anything occurs apart from absolute content.

Buyer beware, there are no screws included to mount this drive.

Experience: 1 Months
 Verified Owner
Easy to install
No hiccups
Doesn't come with brackets (like on M5P)
I've had this SSD for about a month. So far, it's been rock solid. Being brand new, there was no firmware to update. I liked that it used the Marvell controller and not Sandforce. Time will tell if it's as solid as the Crucial m4 but there doesn't seem to be any reason that it won't be. Read times are amazingly fast and write isn't that bad. Overall, recommended.

Experience: 1 Months
 Verified Owner
fast and so far reliable
Bought this as the system drive for my main workstation. easy to install, performed as expected from the start. Worked well even when full almost to capacity.

Experience: 2 Weeks
 Verified Owner
Fast, cheap (price matched to $86 each)
Bought two of these a little while ago, both for relatively new builds. I never used an SSD before, and I had no clue they were this fast! It worked straight out of the box, and I had no problems installing windows 7 on it (aside from silly user errors, but I digress). Definitely something I would buy again.
