Hey everyone - I just got my Vertex 4 128GB today. I'm waiting on some HDD trays to arrive but I just wanted to see if there's anything I should know when installing/using the drive. I plan on installing it as a secondary drive so that I can update the firmware, then making it my main drive.

Is this link the most up-to-date guide for optimization?

Thanks thumb.gif

So I just put my Vertex 4 in (as a secondary drive) and when I go to update the firmware it completes (first part) and tells me to restart. I do that, and the toolbox still says 1.3 when I start it up. I've tried three times. Do I need to format the drive/make it visible in Windows before I can do it? The toolbox recognizes it, so I'm not sure what's wrong.

Enhancements:
• Optimized idle garbage collection algorithms to extend the benefits of performance mode by enabling the feature across a greater percentage of the drive
• Improved HBA / RAID card compatibility
• Further improved compatibility with desktop and mobile ATA security features

Fixes:
• Corrected a corner case issue where the ‘Remaining Life’ SMART attribute could be reported incorrectly

Are you shutting it down completely, which I believe is required instead of restarting.
