They use non-volatile NAND Flash memory as the storage medium. Utilizing Marvell controller chipsets, the new SSDs deliver faster speeds for system boot-up, application launch and file transfer, lower power consumption and longer battery life, among other benefits, according to Esteban Kim, director of New Business Development at PLDS.

Both the PX-64M1S and the PX-128M1S feature 2.5-inch small form factors and an integrated SATA II interface.The PX-64M1S delivers up to 110MB/second sequential read, 65MB/second in sequential write, and up to 4,200 random read IOPS and 1,200 random write IOPS.

The PX-128M1S delivers up to 130MB/second sequential read, 70MB/second sequential write, and up to 4,300 random read IOPS and 1,800 random write IOPS. Both drives offer low power consumption, as well as high shock and vibration resistance. They also come equipped with Plextor’s Wear Leveling algorithm to maintain reliability over an extended period of usage and S.M.A.R.T (Self Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) to analyze and report errors.

Plextor SSDs are available now, with manufacturer's suggested retail prices of US$225 for the 64GB model and $400 for the 128GB version.
