So Plextor SSD... how come no one is talking about these drives? I am looking to get one of the M3 series but it seems to me like either no one has them or no one is talking about them. I know everyone thinks of DVD burners when they hear plextor, but anyone have any feedback regarding the Plextor SSD drives?

This site ran a review of the drive and of what I can find, they are a very reputable site...this is the last page of a very long in-depth review:

Yeah, and that article alone had me breathless and not wanting to talk about them; needed a break. Not here of course, but in my other interwebs life. Did you like how it started? He didn't even know Plextor was a quality brand. Not in SSD, but as a whole. The good thing at this point, I guess, is that he's actually neutral. But trust me in that he got some friendly elbows over not knowing who Plextor is ;)

Oops, wow...it got edited out and summed up in "I wasn't expecting much from it".

Basically with SSD, it's all about the firmware you make for it IMO. I don't see Plextor being any different from the other 20 vendors out there trying to get a leg up in a sea of "me too". Some stand out as being able to write good firmware, some don't. What did OCZ pay for writers...30 million? Vertex 4 has the same controller as the Plexy, but which one will pull out ahead in the end?

Check the prices too. Let the battles begin!
