Plextor LLC (www.plextor.com), a leading
developer and manufacturer of high-performance digital media equipment,
announces the availability of its first line of solid-state drives (SSDs) – the
PX-64M1S (64GB) and the PX-128M1S (128GB).
Plextor’s first generation of SSDs use non-volatile NAND Flash memory as the
storage medium. Utilizing Marvell controller chipsets, the new SSDs deliver
faster speeds for system boot-up, application launch and file transfer, lower
power consumption and longer battery life, among other benefits.
“We’re excited to leverage Plextor’s expertise in optical storage and enter
the SSD market as it continues to grow,” said Esteban Kim, Director of New
Business Development at PLDS. “PCMark, SYSmark and HD Benchmark industry utility
tests scored Plextor SSDs high and we’re proud to have the new lineup available
to our customers.”
Both the PX-64M1S and the PX-128M1S feature 2.5” small form factor and an
integrated SATA II interface for better performance and versatility. Each is
also bundled with Acronis True Image software to provide users with a full set
of advanced features for backup and recovery needs.
The PX-64M1S delivers up to 110MB/s sequential read, 65MB/s in sequential
write, and up to 4,200 random read IOPS and 1,200 random write IOPS. The
PX-128M1S delivers up to 130MB/s sequential read, 70MB/s sequential write, and
up to 4,300 random read IOPS and 1,800 random write IOPS. Both drives offer low
power consumption, as well as high shock and vibration resistance. They also
come equipped with Plextor’s unique Wear Leveling algorithm to maintain
reliability over an extended period of usage and S.M.A.R.T (Self Monitoring,
Analysis and Reporting Technology) to analyze and report errors.
Plextor SSDs are available now, with MSRP around $225 for 64GB and $400 for
128GB. For more information on Plextor SSD and other products, please
