Giving a sneak peek inside its State-of-the-Art testing laboratory, Plextor, developer of high-performance digital storage technology design reveals the secret behind its stable and dependable SSD. Plextor’s stringent testing is done through all the stages right from development till the SSD is packed and dispatched; a major part of the magic sauce that ensures the industry’s most stable and reliable product reaches its valuable users.
Plextor has the firmware development team and hardware engineers that can respond to test results and produce ultra-stable designs, and control quality tightly, which combined with 100% testing gives Plextor SSDs the lowest annual failure rate in the industry, a mere 0.16%.
Right from the development stage, the testing takes place at STVC (Storage Validation and Testing Center) a facility that Plextor developed to allow large-scale tests across 400 SSDs simultaneously, using the world’s most advanced control system and exclusive software to check every parameter of an SSD.
A stringent compatibility test across 90% hardware of leading global brands as well OS helps Plextor correct all compatibility issues before the SSD reaches to the valuable customers. The uncompromising approach to quality means a zero-error, zero-failure standards during the toughest 500 hour elevated temperature development test. 400 SSDs are simultaneously put through rigorous temperature fluctuations, industry’s fastest read/write speeds, sleep/wake cycles and warm and cold boot ups.
