Product Description

Plextor S3C 2.5" SSD - 128GB


New processes for advanced components

Only the latest components were selected for the S3 series namely, Hynix's advanced 14nm process triple level cell NAND flash memory, and SMI 2254 controller. These components combined allows the S3 Series to deliver sequential read/write speeds of 550/520 MB/s with random read/write speeds of 92K/79K IOPS. Compared to the sluggish and traditional hard drives, this is a remarkable level of performance. Despite being entry-level devices, their professional quality standard is nonetheless worth noting.

Real capacity of high speed cache

Use the SSDs full storage capacity! The proprietary industry-leading PlexNitro technology uses SLC cache design, which means the S3 does not need to reserve over-provisioning space, thus leading to accelerated read/write speeds. This means the users can use the full capacity of the drive. Take 128GB SSD as an example: after deducting the over-provisioning space used by other brands, only about 120GB of space will be left. With the PlexNitro performance optimization technology,, however, the full 128GB of space can be used, with no reduction at all.

Ideal for custom PC building and upgrades

The S3 series comes in two form factors - SATA 2.5-inch (S3C) and M.2 2280 (S3G) and offers 3 capacity options: 128GB, 256GB and 512GB. It can fully satisfy the installation requirements of desktop and laptop devices, as well as other devices that use SSDs. This makes the S3 series the most flexible choice.


PlexNitro, Plextor's exclusive cache acceleration technology, is developed especially for TLC SSD. Utilizing so called PlexNitro Cache as a buffer to improve the read and write speeds of TLC SSD, without taking away from user capacity as over provisioning. Plextor remains committed to providing the "Full Capacity" SSD products of 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB instead of 120GB, 240GB, and 480GB.


Plextor's PlexVault software is aimed to provide a more secured space and complete control privileges to users. Even if you are using a computer with others, you can still store your private data via PlexVault, safely and securely hidden on the computer, as long as the computer is equipped with a Plextor SSD.


The storage capacity of SSDs is always a key point of consideration. Plextor's PlexCompressor utilizes custom, smart-compression technology that gives the user more storage capacity without impacting user experience and system performance.


PlexTurbo is an intelligent SSD RAM caching solution using system RAM to accelerate SSD storage performance. It boosts the service life of the SSD while vastly accelerating access speed performance.( Recommend DRAM capacity: 32GB )
