Plextor PX-256S2G 256GB S2 m.2 TLC Solid State Drive
Price: 3,999
Product Description:
256GB / 512MB DDR3 / SMI SM2258 / Hynix 16nm TLC

Best entry-level SSD upgrade
Plextor has combined advanced SSD technology with proprietary firmware and software to create the S2 series of SSDs that offer users the best cost vs. performance ratio. The S2 series uses high quality components such as the Hynix 16nm TLC NAND Flash memory and the latest SMI controller chip to deliver continuous blazing read/write speeds of up to 520/450 MB/s and random read/write speeds of 98K/78K IOPS(S2C), 96K/77K IOPS(S2G). The exceptional performance offers first time users and enthusiasts the most affordable SSD upgrade.

Proprietary PlexNitro technology uses the SLC cache mechanism making over-provisioning (OP) unnecessary for improved read/write performance. This puts the full capacity of the SSD at the user's fingertips. For a 128 GB TLC SSD, where other brands have only 120GB available after OP is deducted, S2 delivers the full 128GB without any compromises in performance. What a great offer in terms of cost vs. performance!

Flawless Plextor Quality
The S2 series maintains the standard for flawless quality set by Plextor. Like other PLEXTOR products, it has passed rigorous inspections under the most advanced SSD testing equipment in the world; not a single error or fault is allowed (Zero Error). The "Plextor endurance testing mechanism" simulate a range of professional read-write scenarios to ensure stability and data security.
  • 100% Burn-in / Aging Test
  • 250 Times Power Cycle – Cold and Warm Boot Test
  • 48hrs Sustained Read and Write Test
  • 1008hrs of Zero-Error Testing
  • 4000 Times Idle Test – Sleep and Hibernation Test
  • Mean Time Between Failures of 1.5 Million Hours
Exclusive Technologies
PlexNitro, Plextor’s exclusive cache acceleration technology, is developed especially for TLC SSD. Utilizing so called PlexNitro Cache as a buffer to improve the read and write speeds of TLC SSD, without taking away from user capacity as over provisioning. Plextor remains committed to providing the “Full Capacity” SSD products of 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB instead of 120GB, 240GB, and 480GB.

Plextor's PlexVault software is aimed to provide a more secured space and complete control privileges to users. Even if you are using a computer with others, you can still store your private data via PlexVault, safely and securely hidden on the computer, as long as the computer is equipped with a Plextor SSD.

The storage capacity of SSDs is always a key point of consideration. Plextor's PlexCompressor utilizes custom, smart-compression technology that gives the user more storage capacity without impacting user experience and system performance.

PlexTurbo is an intelligent SSD RAM caching solution using system RAM to accelerate SSD storage performance. It boosts the service life of the SSD while vastly accelerating access speed performance.
