Plextor M3 Pro vs Plextor M3 256 GB SSDs

RE: Plextor M3 Pro vs Plextor M3 256 GB SSDs
I've began work/research on the next edition of The Best SSDs/HDDs For Your Money, so you'll see in the article what's my final answer.

What I can tell you now is that I'll change the performance rating of quite a few SSDs and that I underestimated the performance of the Plextor M3, which will see its performance rating go up.

As Brian pointed out though, the Samsung 830 is an excellent drive, which is on average a notch faster than the M3, as well as being less expensive.

Tweaktown confirmed that the M3 Pro outperforms any SandForce based SSDs (Intel 520, Vertex 3 and the Kingston HyperX), so it's certainly a high-performance SSD and the 5 years warranty on it is great.

Now whether the M3 Pro outperforms the Samsung 830 or not is not a question that I can answer at this moment unfortunately, since no review of the M3 Pro puts it against the Samsung 830. I know that Anand from AnandTech went to gets his hand on the M3 Pro after testing the M3 though, so hopefully we'll have concrete data on how well the M3 Pro does vs the Samsung 830 soon enough.
