Your ssd has half the capacity of mine and mine is over 1/3rd full as well, so yours should definitely outperform mine.

Well write speeds on your drive is suppose to be much faster then mine. The read speeds arent that far off. Crystal Disk info does show version 0009, ill rerun and see what i get. My numbers were much higher on AS SSD.

Here is with Atto.

I wasn't knocking your results, I just expected yours to be quite a bit faster than mine using the same test. I'm beginning to think individual SSD performance is almost as varied as the performances of individual cpu's.
I've already found that one set of matched memory modules do not run the same as a supposedly identical set.
I found this rather interesting quote from a HardwareCanucks review of the M4 256GB:
"The cache chip is of course made by none other than Micron. “D9LGQ†tells us that this is a lead free, 96-ball (9 x 14mm) FBGA packaged IC with a capacity of a 128 Megabytes. More importantly it is a DDR3-1333 SDRAM chip with CAS Latency of 9." http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum...sd-review.html
I had no idea that memory chips were part of ssd's, so I know even less about ssd's than I thought.

I dont know much bout SSD's either. I just know the higher the capacity the faster they usually are. Especially on write speeds. I dont think it matters how much data is on the drive. Long as there is a certain amount of free space I believe. Anyways, sure beats an HDD.

If you are already using the SSD you do NOT have to reformat it. The instructions for the firmware says that there will be no data lost on the SSD and if it had to be formatted then all data would be lost.
I'd like to know if I should format the new SSD I have just ordered before I install the updated firmware. That is, if the firmware has not already been updated from the factory. I doubt it has since the updated firmware is so new.
