mSATA Solid State Drive

Serial ATA 6Gb /s

The Plextor M5M is a high-performance mSATA 6 Gb/s SSD specifically engineered to give ultrabook, tablet PC, and other JEDEC MO-300 form factor users the speed and low power consumption benefits of the newest generation SSD technology. The M5M features the latest generation Marvell 88SS9187, delivering market-leading mSATA speeds with a maximum sequential read/write speed of 540MB/s, and write speed of 430MB/s, and random read/write speeds of 80K IOPS/ 77K IOPS. With True Speed technology the M5M ensures real-world performance benefits over the long term and avoids performance slow down. Perfectly complementing the M5Ms high speed is its high energy efficiency, support for the DEVSLP standard and power consumption of 1 mW in DEVSLP state. The drive is designed to resume from DEVSLP state in just 100ms allowing your computer to maximize battery life and remain responsive. Also featured is Plextors exclusive True Protect double-data protection technology providing automatic multilayer data integrity checking for long-term data accuracy and highly-secure 256-bit AES full disk encryption for data confidentiality. The M5M has a calculated 2.4 million hours MTBF having undergone extensive testing during development in state-ofthe-art testing facilities. Having passed Plextors strict enterprise-grade Zero Error standard of 400 units surviving 500 hours of the toughest continuous testing without a single error or failure, the SSD is extremely reliable. The caseless Plextor M5M is only an eighth of the size of the standard 2.5 inch SSD drive and provides uncompromising performance making it an ideal upgrade for users wanting to maximize the overall speed and battery life of ultraportable laptops. It is available in 64 GB, 128 GB, and 256 GB capacities.

Continuous high performance Latest server-grade Marvell 88SS9187 controller ensures fast and reliable operation for all applications. Sequential mode performance of up to 540 MB/s read and up to 430 MB/s write, boosts the responsiveness of ultrathin laptop and tablet PCs. Random read speeds of up to 80K IOPS and write speeds up to 77K IOPS at 4 K file size, give maximum real-world performance benefits. Advanced True Speed technology provides long-term sustained performance for all data types and prevents speed drop. High energy efficiency with DEVSLP support Supports the SATA Device Sleep standard incorporating the new DEVSLP state allowing the SSD to communicate in sleep mode. Only uses 1 mW in the DEVSLP state for high energy efficiency and a long battery life.

Extreme reliability Calculated mean time between failures 2.4 million hours Extensively tested during development using the latest test equipment and a rigorous multistage testing procedure. Passed Plextors enterprise-grade Zero Error standard of 500 hours of testing of 400 drives without errors. Every single drive rigorously tested, burned-in, and subjected to accelerated usage simulations for ultrastability. True Protect double-data protection Supports the highest level of AES full-disk encryption, 256bit and uses a US Government AES-validated Marvell controller for full data security Automatic data integrity checking using the latest 128-bit error-correction codes. Unique firmware based Robust Data Hold-out Algorithm gives additional assurance of long-term accuracy.
