The Plextor M5Pro is a professional SSD designed for business and advanced users
who demand high performance, reliability, and true data integrity. It uses the latest
Marvell 88SS9187 controllerand this provides it with random read / write speeds of
up to 100,000 / 88,000 IOPS. Even underheavy loads the multi-core controller and
exclusive Plextor firmware make the M5Pro extremelyfast, reliable and stable.
The combination of the latest Marvell 88SS9187 controller and the best quality Japanese
ToshibaToggle NAND flash creates M5Pro with enterprise-class performance. It has the
ability to consistentlydeliver random read / write speeds up to 100,000 / 88,000 IOPS and
sequential read / write speeds up to 540 / 470 MB/s. This makes the M5Pro suitable for use
in a heavy workstation, server role, or Raid 0 configuration.
In line with the needs of advanced users for data integrity and confidentiality the M5Pro offers
a uniqueenterprise-grade double-data protection technology. Using latest 128-bit error correction
system built intothe latest Marvell controller it is able to automatically check and correct the
accuracyof data being readfrom the Flash memory. This is complemented by a second layer of
read protectionoffered by the RobustData Hold-out algorithm in Plextor’s exclusive firmware,
allowing the drive toachieve total data accuracyeven in the long-term.
For data confidentiality the M5Pro supports full drive encryption with an Advanced Encryption
Standard(AES)256 bit algorithm using its US Government AES-validated Marvell controller.
With the M5Pro, Plextor has focused on developing and supplying one of the most stable drives
on themarket.To achieve this, extensive pre-production testing took place using the world’s most
advanced SSDtesting facilitiesFLEXSTAR testing chamber. It was only when the design was able
to pass strict enterprisegrade Zero Error standardof 400 units surviving 500 hours of the toughest
continuous testing without a singleerror or failure that the drive wasapproved. To ensure stability
and reliability for individual drives all drivesundergo rigorous high-temperature burn-intests and
accelerated usage simulation testing.
