Crucial SSD, should I upgrade firmware? (just purchased)

Crucial M4 CT128M4SSD2BAA 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Just bought this off newegg and some reviews are saying to upgrade the firmware while some say no.

Should I? And would anyone know a link to the firmware for this drive if I should?

  1. To check the firmware, you need some the software like AS SSD or the intel RST.

    The new version FW is 000F, if your SSD has this you don't.
  2. Of course you should update it! Crucial wouldn't hinder SSD performance on purpose.
  3. I would update the drive, but always make a backup! The release notes mention:
    • Improved compatibility with certain SAS expanders and peripheral RAID cards.
    • Improved throughput stability under extremely heavy workloads.
    • Improved data protection in the event of unexpected, asynchronous power loss.
    First point is not important for most customer, but the last two affect and especially the last affects everybody.
