Windows 7: OCZ releases Vertex SSD Firmware v1.4

OCZ releases Vertex SSD Firmware v1.4

OCZ releases Vertex SSD Firmware v1.4
Vertex SSD Firmware, v1.4, has now been released. It is well known that overtime the NAND flash memory in traditional solid state drives is effected by data fragmentation which causes the drives to slow down noticeably.
While competing drives still suffer from performance degradation, OCZ’s exclusive SSD firmware helps keep performance at peak levels without any further maintenance from consumers. The background optimizer runs during idle-time to restore the SSD to its original performance, providing peace of mind for the entire life of the drive.
In addition, these drives will fully support TRIM with the impending Microsoft Windows 7 release, making OCZ SSDs a future-proof investment.
Please note this new firmware is not for the Vertex Turbo. More info here.

In all fairness, there are other manufactuers out there who have also gotten around these problems that plagued the first generation units. I believe that the Intel, Patriot and Corsairs all have/will have TRIM support and such to also reduce and performance issues down the road.

I realize you were just linking to posted information from OCZ...but obviously their wording made it sound as if they were the only ones to have eliminated this issue...or at least significantly improved it.
