Plextor's M5 Pro is the company's current flagship SSD, based on a Marvell flash controller and Toshiba 19 nm NAND flash. In our testing, we see solid results that can easily compete with other high-end drives. The included five year warranty is another bonus.

Great review as always!
I have a Plextor M2P 256GB SSD and it's been very reliable and still fast considering it's age. I'd say one of the strong points of Plextors is their reliability :D

I have this SSD, Got my OS and all my apps and a few games on it - its pretty good stuff loads up BF3 pretty quickly.

Didnt get Acronis with my SSD though, but i use the one from Western Digital (which is free)

Just ordered an M5Pro 512gb yesterday. Essentially the same controller and design as the Crucial M500 from what I could gather but with better performance. also a bit of extra space and a better longer warranty. Can't wait to fire up the new rig with a new SSD.
