It has been awhile but as I recall the firmware update was fairly easy and painless, but as always, make a back up first...just in case.

I would call it acceptable. Not a barnstormer in the measurement but probably very good in real life.

I agree, well summed up Wolfgang.

Am I correct in thinking there was a firmware update for the M4 a long time ago that was kind of critical where once the SSD reached a certain amount of hours it had issues?

I don't think I ever updated the firmware on it and wander if this could be why it stopped working. The PC would be on standby and when I moved the mouse instead of being greeted with the desktop it was a black screen saying something was wrong ( I forget what it said now) but it would not boot after that.

That is correct. It was 0309.

For my Crucial M4 I reverted back to firmware v309 because my (& others) write access time according to AS SSD increased on the later firmware. My SSDs WAY outperform HDDs which is the main thing. I'm tending to think that the Samsung SSDs are a better bet which is why I have 2 of them on my PCs.
@ PaulPicks
The fact your Crucial M4 "died" isn't good!

I keep mine also at 0309 - after I heard about the troubles with the later releases.

Paul the 0309 firmware addressed an issue where the drive would stop working after 5000 hours I think it was. It should still be under warranty if the firmware upgrade won't revive it. IT takes a month of Sundays to get a replacement from them. I even got a Pre-paid RMA and it was still 3 weeks before the new one got to me. If they send you a new M4 it will be a refurbished one, it has been replaced by the M500 series.

BTW, when I got the "new" SSD it already had the 070H on it. I think it would brick it if I tried reverting, it works fine.
