Plextor is not a name that you would have immediately associate with SSD manufacture – they’re probably best known to old timers as a leading manufacturer of CD/DVD drives – but they’ve been in the business a while. Unlike Intel or Samsung who have made their mark with their own brand controllers and software, Plextor has opted to go for a third party Marvell controller. These controllers are used to great effect in the popular Crucial M4, but require some special firmware to really unlock their potential.
Thankfully, Plextor have opted to do just that and their earlier M3 series SSDs were some of the fastest available. With the M3 Pro, they look to offer a premium option that promises even greater performance. Let’s find out if they’re able to deliver on their word.
