It took Intel over a month to put out a fix for it and there's a small amount of ppl saying that the new FW did not work. You could secure erase the drive to get the capacity back. My 320 series has been knock on wood for the last 6 months.
All I can suggest for the folks who have M4's (as with any storage device) to really take a look at your backup methods. After I found out about the 320 series issues, I discovered that my Backup methods were very poor and since I use my PC for work and gaming second, it would cost me a lot of time/money if something ever did go wrong. Now worse case is if something every did go wrong, i would only loose a few minutes worth of work.
Another thing, I follow Extreme Systems SSD endurance testing I was wondering how many hours that B.A.T had on his M4 before it died. It had less then 2500 hours on but it died from data retention because it was powered off for over a week. A link for anyone who wants to check it out. http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?271063-SSD-Write-Endurance-25nm-Vs-34nm

Thank you for the link. I am so happy I bought three Intel x25-v and two x25-m 80GB-120GB drives. It seems Intel made an excellent product.

No it does not affect data, unless something goes wrong during the actual firmware flashing process. You should be doing image backups anyway, in case anything ever goes wrong!smile.gif

Don't you find it odd you're telling me not to assume yet you assumed it might die on you before you got all the facts about what was happening?

Bugs happen. It's how you fix them that counts.

Ya, your right. I apologize. When it comes to this thread, I guess I've had enough. It's pretty black and white. The problem has been found, the fix is being tested and is on the way, and all in 30 days. My last post in this thread. Have fun all! smile.gif

Tell me something please. How is this situation any different than the 8mb bug Intel experienced a few months ago on the 320 ssd line???

Intel fixed the bug promptly with firmware. Crucial is doing the exact same thing.

For everyone going nuts...
Quote:
We are aware of an issue that is currently affecting a small number of users whereby their m4 causes their system to require a restart. This issue occurs after approximately 5,000 hours of actual “on time” use. Following the initial reboot, the system then requires subsequent restarts after each additional hour of use. However, the data on the SSD is unaffected and will not be lost due to this condition.

Through our investigation, we have determined the root cause of the problem and will be releasing a firmware update that rectifies the situation. We are currently running through our validation and compatibility process. Once this process is complete, the firmware will be made available to our customers. Although we understand the desire of some people to start using unreleased firmware now, we want to ensure that our solution works across multiple chipsets, systems, and operating systems before publishing the release code.

We are currently targeting the week of January 16th, 2012 to publicly release the new firmware update.

We understand the impact that this is having on some users right now and apologize for this inconvenience. We appreciate your continued support, feedback, and patience as we finalize code and resolve this issue.
