Honestly, the performance numbers is never appealing if you're the kind of users who afters M.2 SSD with high read and write speed. Of course, this doesn't means that the Plextor S1G is a bad SSD that doesn't worth spending your money on, as 510 MB/s read and 470 MB/s write is actually good enough for most users. What makes the Plextor S1G unique in it's own way, is none other than the Toshiba MLC NAND flash, which offers higher life expectancy over most SSD that uses TLC NAND flash.
The Plextor S1G 256GB M.2 SSD is expected to retail at around $150, a price which we find still reasonable, given that most SSD nowadays uses TLC NAND flash to keep to cost down.
