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.
