Plextor, a leading developer of high-performance digital storage equipment, announces the launch of Plextor M5M, a high-performance mSATA 6 Gb/s SSD powered by True Protect double-data protection technology. This new technology provides Enterprise grade Double data Protection including multi-layered data integrity checking with automatic 128-bit error correction and Plextor’s unique firmware based Robust Data Hold-out Algorithm to ensure 100% accurately for long-term data storage. True Protect also offers full data security through the use of the highest level of AES full-drive encryption, 256-bit which is performed by the M5M’s US Government AES-validated Marvell controller.
Plextor M5M is highly compact and light weight specifically engineered for the thinnest ultrabooks, laptops and tablet PCs enabling them to maximize system performance and responsiveness through ultra-fast storage performance. The new drive delivers equally high speeds for all data types through the use of the Marvell 88SS9187 controller. True-Speed technology prevents long-term slowdown by automatically returning drive speed to like-new levels after periods of intense use. This combination of the latest server grade controller and True Speed gives M5M users unequalled long-term real-world performance.
The speed of the new M5M is complemented with high efficiency including support for the DEVSLP standard. In the Device Sleep state, the drive uses a mere 1 mW and resumes in 100 ms, and in operating mode it uses less that 10% of the power of a typical hard drive. This gives users significantly longer battery life especially when used for any storage-intensive application.
Bill Liu, Regional Manager-Channel Marketing & Sales Div., Plextor said, “Plextor M5M is a high-performance, high-durability, enterprise grade double protection SSD drives. Enterprises in the region can now be assured of extra protection at SSD level with highest level of full-drive encryption.”
The dimensions for M5M is 50.8 mm (2 inches) x 29.8 mm (1.17 inches) x 3.6 mm (0.14 inches) and it weighs only 9 g (0.32 ounces).
