Crucial Releases Firmware Update for m4 SSD
Crucial has released a firmware update for its popular m4 SSD series. The update carries a version code of 000F. The update is said to improve compatibility with certain SAS expanders and RAID cards but Crucial is also claiming better throughput stability (i.e. performance) under heavy loads and enhanced data protection in the event of power loss.
It appears that the update is aimed more towards enterprise users than consumers because SAS expanders and RAID cards are primarily enterprise products. Consumer workloads are usually lighter and may not benefit from the improved throughput stability at heavy loads. Power-loss protection is welcomed by all users, however, as an unexpected power-loss may happen in any environment.
Crucial offers both a Windows 7 updater and traditional ISO file for upgrading the firmware. While the update is non-destructive in nature, we always recommended that you backup your important data before flashing the drive.
