But, for day to day real world use, it does perform well for me.
That's the point. The nums are one thing - but the actual performance one feels is what counts.

I have one Vertex2 that the WEI rates at 6.9 - but it performs beautifully. I have never tried to find out why this WEI is so low. All settings and the alignment are OK.

If I did it correctly, I chose the name of my RAID and it shows my ver. Is 1.0.0 and Corsair has 1.3.3 and they say "If you are stable and do not have issues, we suggest that you do not flash your firmware." I think I should leave it alone...Don't you?

I don't believe you should flash the firmware unless you have a good reason. In the case of the Crucial M4s there was a very good reason to flash to V 0309.

Agreed. If you have no reason to or are not affected by a issue, just leave it alone.

The M4s and the early Intel 320s had a issue that were what would be considered critical updates. Thats a bit different though.

RAID0 on Intel SATAIII ports with latest RST, write cache enabled....plus the drives have a little bit to do with it also. My OCZ Solid 3's on the same ports were getting the pic below. Haven't checked to see what they get on the SATAII ports yet Plus I used the guide posted here to set everything in the registry except for moving temp files

Which one are you referring to? The AHCI 0 registry entry?
