The Plextor M5 Pro uses the latest Marvell 88SS9187 controller and Toshiba's 19 nm Toggle NAND.
As an SSD rated for professionals, the M5 Pro Xtreme has a calculated mean time between failures of 2.4 million hours.
The M5 Pro Xtreme is also the first drive to feature Plextor's True Protect double-data protection technology. The first element in True Protect is a multi-layer system to ensure the highest level of data integrity, combining the latest 128-bit error correction built into the Marvell controller with Plextor's firmware-based Robust Data Hold-out algorithm. True Protect's other element is protection against data theft using 256-bit AES full-drive encryption for maximum confidentiality.
