Plextor, Maingear Join Hands to Bring Enhanced Gaming Experience to Consumers

Consumers seeking to have enhanced gaming experience will now be delighted, as Maingear’s custom desktop, personal computers (PCs) and notebooks now feature Plextor solid state drives (SSDs), offering Super redundant array of independent disks (RAID). This combination will not only increase space, but also speed too.

This arrangement was possible as Plextor collaborated with Maingear. Under the terms of this strategic partnership, Plextor became the main supplier of SSDs for Maingear’s PCs.

Precisely, consumers can now experience extreme speed, massive throughput, and fault tolerant performance on their PCs, as Plextor SSD is now available on Maingear’s rig. This combination is ideal for serious gamers.

Maingear is a custom designer of high performance PC systems, including custom gaming PCs.

Owned by Shinano Kenshi of Japan, the Plextor brand of storage and multimedia products include solid-state drives, Blu-ray optical disc drives, and other high-performance digital storage devices for professionals, consumers, and enterprises.

"We are extremely proud to work closely with Maingear to bring consumers an enhanced gaming experience," said Darlo Perez, managing director of Plextor Americas, in a statement. "Plextor SSDs are targeted for advanced users who demand high-performance and our products are extremely fast, reliable, and stable, which makes it suitable with Maingear's custom PC systems."

Plextor's one of the SSDs, M5 Pro Xtreme SSD, is cited to have reached the milestone of 100,000 IOPS random-read speeds. This drive also features the company’s True Speed technology, thereby preventing SSD speed drops and automatically returning performance to like-new speeds. In addition, the M5 Pro Xtreme has mean time between failures (MTBF) of 2.4 million hours.

Wallace Santos, CEO and founder of Maingear computers, said in a statement, "Maingear custom desktop and notebooks wouldn’t be complete without offering one of the best hard drive solutions available. With Plextor solid state drives offering Super RAID, our customers can build a system with more than enough speed and space to fit their games, movies, and music with room to spare."
