Yes, Plextor is definitely charging a premium for this drive. Aside from the low profile chassis, the components are nearly identical to the M3 Series. I'm still waiting for someone to figure out a way to cross flash the drives.

Plextor's PlexTool software just does a secure erase and you will lose your data if you do this. There's really no need to do this though as the TRIM and garbage collection functions are VERY good.
