The Plextor M6M is a high-performance mSATA 6 Gb/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.
The combination of the latest Marvell 88SS9188 controller and True Speed technology creates M6M 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.
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.
The combination of the latest Marvell« 88SS9188 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 M6M unequaled data integrity.
AES, the U.S. government standard encryption technology, is divided into three levels 128, 192, 256. The Plextor M6M 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.
Plextor SSDs are required to pass some of the toughest tests in the industry before we even start production. Parallel tests involving 465 SSDs tested for 576 hours and the use of top grade FLEXSTAR« testing equipment to simulate extreme operating environments ensure that the M6M is built and tested for the highest level of stability in any working condition.
48hr Sustained Read and Write Test
Two days continuous 4K file read / write test, zero error pass requirement.
4000 Times Idle TestûSleep 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 CycleûCold and Warm Boot Tests
Continuous cold boot and warm boot cycles 250 times, zero error pass requirement.
With its ultra mini size, light weight and low power consumption, the M6M is especially suitable for ultra portable on-the-go computing device.
The low power design can consume less power and provide extended battery life.
