value...? with a 535 MB/s reads, and up to 455 MB/s writes and a price of 245€ for a 512gb?
a Samsung 850 EVO basic 500gb is 189chf for me (181€~ ) 540 MB/s reads, and up to 520 MB/s writes and 98k IOPS write 90k IOPS read and same 512mb cache

it's all but a value and even not a right price as of today, even for 12gb more

That is Plextor's definition of "value". The rest of us use a more realistic dictionary. :laugh:
