Plextor M5S price?

6 posts in this topic

Hi!

The M5S is really chaep atm, the 128GB is cheaper than a Samsung 840.

There are rumors that Plextor use cheaper NAND and not the Intel 25nm (like in Crucial M4)anymore.

Anybody have an idea? True or not?

did not know that, ty. that aside the 'pro' vers is only $10 more at newegg y wouldn't u go with that?

im pretty sure plex gets top bin nand from Toshiba. not so sure about micron/intel. unless its a significant diff in price id go with the higher quality(assumption on my part) everytime. and you get the newer controller with the pro.

The M5Pro is definitely worth the extra ~$10. I'm surprised Plextor hasn't discontinued the M5S and similar slower models. I believe they use a better TRIM and over provisioning scheme in the M5P, also.

Here in Germany you pay for the 256GB-version of the M5P ca. 35€ (atm 45$) more than M5S.
