For those who wonder why I am conservative when it comes to firmware upgrades and stick to a "if it's not broke, don't break it" mentality....it's stuff just like this.

seems i may have spoken too soon. i thought i bricked it initially because i got several error messages on several different attempts to update the f/w. the last time was a success though! Yay! (thank goodness! as i was going to buy a replacement tomorrow with money i don't have)

man, oh man. i think i skipped my 43rd and 44th birthdays and aged myself right into 45! i surely thought i bricked this ssd. error messages on a f/w update is never good thing. but i guess persistence pays off sometimes (?) LOL! got it working. benches are are only a hair above what the were before the f/w update--although the atto bench does show that the read times have improved.

prior to the update, my system felt as it did before my hdd upgrade. my previous system disk was a 1tb wd caviar black. honestly, the ssd didn't have that "snappiness" to it as others say that their systems possess. well, after this f/w update (and i suppose my last on this drive ), my system does seem to have some snappiness to it. that's good.

if i still drank, i'd be heading to the store to get me something right now! this was an ordeal that thankfully ended right.

The transfer times are within the norm. But the access time is unusually high - usually it is 0.1ms. What kind of a SSD is that?

You'll have to let us know how the new F/W performs for the PS-100. I would be interested to know after a month or two. Thanks for posting and good luck with the new SSD!
