The new lineup includes:

M6S 2.5" SATA- The M6S is the perfect hard-drive upgrade for any desktop or laptop PC, improving the computing experience for the everyday user and power-users alike providing faster boot times, faster application loading, and faster response time than a traditional hard drive (HDD).

M6M mSATA – The M6M mSATA is the ultimate ultra-book upgrade and ideal solution for users looking to upgrade any device that requires a SSD with a small footprint. At nearly one-eighth the size of a standard 2.5-inch SSD, the M6M still manages to pack in all of the performance and reliability that is expected of a Plextor drive.

M6e PCI-e – The M6e PCI-e is the first SSD specifically designed to meet the demanding requirements of the gaming community. The M6e PCI-e SSD uses a new generation of high-bandwidth components to deliver smooth, uninterrupted gameplay, allowing players to excel to the next level.

M6Pro 2.5" SATA (available later this year) – This highly anticipated product is expected to deliver dramatically enhanced speed, massive throughput, and fault tolerant performance that is ideal for prosumers, serious gamers, and system integrators.

All Plextor M6 Series SSDs feature a server-grade Marvell controller, Toshiba 19nm NAND Flash (M6S/M6M feature Toshiba A19), and Plextor's proprietary firmware with TrueSpeed Technology that prevents SSD speed drops by automatically returning performance to like-new speeds. Plextor knows that speed doesn't count for much unless products are reliable–ultimately reliable. Plextor SSDs typically have an MTBF (mean time between failures) of 2.4 million hours. This level of reliability gives Plextor the highest ranking in the industry. All M6 drives are backed with a 3-5 year limited warranty and are available in 64, 128, 256, and 512 GB capacities, depending on model.
