Plextor 128GB PX-128M5S - $85

Recommended Posts

Plextor PX-128M5S M5 Series 128GB Solid State Drive - 2.5" Form Factor, SATA III, 6Gb/s, Supports TRIM

Don't know how long the promotion will last, but it is a good price for a 128GB SSD.

Plextor PX-M5S SSD Review

From review:

Pros

Slightly faster than the older M3S in most categories

Another stable SSD built on a trusted platform

Cons

Higher power consumption than M3S

Slower random 4K read/write speeds at low queue depths

Bottom Line

The Plextor M5S swaps out NAND and offers an improved firmware from the M3S it replaces. There are generally performance increases throughout, but they're small, which is to be expected given the age of the processor being used. The biggest gain is in pricing, right now the M5S is a little cheaper across the board, with further price reductions likely as the drive spends more time in market. Overall, the M5S is another solid offering from Plextor and is worthy of consideration for consumers who want performance and reliability.
