post #11 of 13

Both are substantially slower in the write department, how are they considered better? I like the Sandisk Extreme's and Extreme II's and the M5P Extreme Plextors are pretty sweet. Except the OCZ from plain spec standpoint is a lot faster. THe M5S only does 90 mb/s writes, and the Ultra Plus only does 300 or so mb/s writes. The OCZ still does 550 mb/s reads and 500 mb/s writes. I'm sure with a firmware update, that Sandforce controller wouldn't be too bad. They can't be as bad as they used to be still.

Was actually also going to go with a cheaper case that was on sale, but OP picked out Thor V2 which is why I went with it.

The M5S is only rated at 90Mb/s writes for the 64GB model not the other ones, plus it got a slight speed boost due to NAND changes and firmware updates (new batch).

It's hard to find benchies because all review sites test the 256GB model which obviously performs better.
There's the Vertex 3 here with +50pts but it's the 240GB version vs. 128GB M5S:

120GB Vertex 3:



The M5S does much better than the Vertex 3 althrough ATTO works with non-compressible files which isn't the majority of daily tasks.

Now let's look at Anandtech review, no 128GB model but the 256GB vs. 240GB:

4K: M5S win for read, looses for writes





Sequential: toss-up



Incompressible writes: pwn

Overall the Plextor M5S looks better to me. Not to mention that the Vertex 3 is not only more expensive but looking at it's successor the 4 did poorly in Xtremesystems endurance tests:

So basically, the Vertex 3 is spec'ed higher but isn't actually performing near what they are saying it is.
