A compact size with a big performance! The Plextor M5M is a high-performance mSATA 6GB/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. High Performance The combination of the latest Marvell 88SS9187 controller and True Speed technology creates M5M the enhanced performance and reliability. The True Speed high-performance technology delivers real world benefits and prevents SSD speed drop, automatically returning performance to like-new speeds. Latest server-grade Marvell® 88SS9187 controller ensures fast and reliable operation for all applications. Sequential mode performance of up to 540MB/s read and up to 430MB/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 4K 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. Enterprise-grade Double-data Protection Plextor SSD has a unique True Protect protection system to protect the integrity of your data. To confirm that each piece of data is correctly stored with one hundred percent accuracy the newest 128-bit error correction code is used. For data confidentiality, the drive uses hardware in the US Government AES-validated Marvell controller to provide secure 256-bit full-drive encryption. Data Integrity The combination of the latest Marvell® 88SS9187 6GB/s SATA controller's powerful 128 Random Bit/2K BCH ECC (Error-Correction Codes), and the exclusive Plextor firmware based Robust Data Hold-out Algorithm gives the M5M unequaled data integrity. ASE Data Encryption AES, the U.S. government standard encryption technology, is divided into three levels 128, 192, 256. The Plextor M5M uses the highest level of encryption - 256 bits. This level of SSD encryption is highly secure compared to BIOS or software based encryption and offers strong protection if the computer is stolen. High Energy Efficency with DEVSLP Support Supports the SATA Device Sleep standard incorporating the new DEVSLP state allowing the SSD to communicate in sleep mode. With the DEVSLP mode, the M5M can reduce the power consumption to only 1 mW, and resumes from DEVSLP mode only in 100ms. In order to meet the needs of consumers, the M5M delivers an effective operating and long battery life of the mobile device. Extreme Reliability Plextor SSDs are required to pass some of the toughest tests in the industry before we even start production. Parallel tests involving 400 SSDs tested for 500 hours and the use of top grade FLEXSTAR® testing equipment to simulate extreme operating environments ensure that the M5M is built and tested for the highest level of stability in any working condition. Extensively tested during development using the latest test equipment and a rigorous multistage testing procedure. Passed Plextor's enterprise-grade Zero Error standard of 500 hours of testing of 400 drives without errors. Calculated mean time between failures (MTBF) is an impressive 2.4 million hours, showing the M5M's reliability. 48hr Sustained Read and Write Test Two days continuous 4K file read / write test, zero error pass requirement. 4000 Times Idle Test-Sleep and Hibernation Test After 24 hrs read & write SSD enters sleep (S3) mode and is woken after 5 minutes, repeated for hibernation (S4) mode, zero error pass requirement. 250 Times Power Cycle-Cold and Warm Boot Tests Continuous cold boot and warm boot cycles 250 times, zero error pass requirement. Design for Ultrabook With its ultra mini size, light weight and low power consumption, the M5M is especially suitable for ultra portable on-the-go computing device. Compact size No outer case. Designed for the limited space in ultra portable devices. Highly compact JEDEC MO-300 form factor incorporating an mSATA 6GB/s connection. Light weight (9g max.) and mini size (50.8 x 29.8 x 3.6mm), only an eighth of the size of the standard 2.5 inch SSD drive. Low power consumption The low power design can consume less power and provide extended battery life.
