User experience and Conclusion

Full performance figures after Academic Report Writing the conclusion

Looking first at the build quality of the Plextor M6 Pro we have a drive which is hard to fault. The metal casing offers protection for the internal components and we get quality branded parts as far as those are concerned. This is just the third drive we have seen which uses Toshiba’s new A19nm Toggle NAND and so it is also right on the leading edge component wise while also being generous with the likes of cache volume.

It is also worth noting that the Plextor M6 Pro is a lovely looking drive. In the flesh the brushed aluminium “rose gold” effect finish looks fantastic and while it might be hard to find components to match, anyone who does will have a nice looking system.

In terms of value, we are still waiting for retail links however the inclusion of backup/migration software, Plextool, the SATA cable and drive caddy all add value to a drive which already has a decent 5-year warranty (and the excellent quality testing at the factory).

So that brings us to performance. Overall the Plextor M6 Pro performs well. We put it up against the two other drives we have access to with Toshiba A19 chips and it regularly exceeded the performance of OCZ’s value orientated ARC 100 while competing well with the AMD (OCZ) Radeon R7 series drive which is more towards the high end of the market. It will be interesting to see if Plextor can squeeze a little Extra performance out of this controller/NAND combination over time as it is a brand new configuration but really our main limit is the SATA interface so it wouldn’t be much of a boost… which is where PlexTurbo comes in.

In basic terms, PlexTurbo passes our data through RAM before it hits the Plextor M6 Pro (while also ensuring data is passed to the drive for data protection). The technology identifies hot (frequently used) and cold (rarely used) data and applies the best caching patters to each. The command data is merged into one buffer to accelerate write response speed. This tech also compares the data on the drive to the incoming write and if it is already on the drive, will remove the write command to extend the drives lifespan. In a way PlexTurbo is a feature which cannot be thoroughly reviewed, every system will have different specifications and therefore different results and as the performance changes over time, through varied unique data use, it is even harder to quantify.

What we can do is show you some crazy Atto benchmarks (see further down this page) and let you know that real world use does show performance gains, though they are much more subtle. We also note that there were no scenarios we found where PlexTurbo had a negative effect on the performance of the Plextor M6 Pro. Therefore, turn it on… you have nothing to loose and some performance to gain.

Summary:
A well built drive which has some impressive performance mixed with interesting features. Like every other high end drive in using SATA 3 it is somewhat limited by the interface so we look forward to seeing what the M.2 edition (if there is one) does. A worthy winner of our recommended award.

The test system was built from scratch, a format of the hard drives was performed (NTFS) and then Windows 8 was installed. Following the completion of the installation, the chipset and video drivers were installed. All windows updates were then installed as were the latest builds of the benchmarking tools. Finally, where appropriate, the hard drives were de-fragmented. For each test, the video drivers were set to default quality/optimizations (unless otherwise stated) and each drive was Sanitary/secure Erased between tests.

Good Benchmarking Practice

Where possible, each benchmark was performed three times and the median result for each resolution/setting is shown in the tables that will follow. All applications had their latest patches applied and all hardware features the latest BIOS/Firmware.
