When I say "no-name", I say it loosely. These drives are actually manufactured by Plextor, and anyone who's been around technology knows they've been in the drive business for a long time. Plextor has obviously done their homework on building these drives because they got Marvell on board to build the controllers. Marvell has been manufacturing stable and reliable networking equipment for as long as I can remember, and they've obviously put the same type of engineering into these drives. Remember--these so called "no-name" Lite-On drives often get put into business-class machines that run almost 24/7, so they have to be reliable. Most business-class machines are on three- to five-year lifecycles, and the big companies buying these machines wouldn't pick up computers for their fleet that had unreliable drives in them. Personally, I've had no stability issues with my drives whatsoever, and the only restarts I've been asked to do were related to Windows Update. I've had no blue screens of death, no crashes, and no data loss.
Transfer speed is pretty consistent across all my computers. I average roughly 487 MB/s on sequential reads and 415 MB/s on sequential writes as tested by CrystalDiskMark. The enterprise-class Intel drive in my new ThinkPad averages 418 MB/s read and 397 MB/s write. The Intel also costs $115 more per MSRP. (Also, for reference, every drive I have in use runs on an Intel Ivy Bridge chipset or newer capable of SATA III 6.0 Gbps. Only one M6S--installed in a ThinkCentre Tiny M93p primarily used as a music server--runs on a Haswell chipset.)
The M6S series has been on the market for about three years now, so to see it outperform newer and more expensive drives truly makes it impressive. In fact, I'd go so far as to call these drives sleepers. It doesn't have a fancy design on it, and it's likely your friends haven't heard of it--but from a performance-to-price standpoint, it's hard not to give one of these drives a try.
