For the sake of people who have this problem, I hope so..you're not alone. Keep an eye on the dedicated thread at Crucial to see what everyone has already tried (I'm sure someone posted this already but just incase).

The problem isn't a minor reduction in speed due to use but a drop of 4k64thrd down to ~135MB/s as per the OP here, this is a Crucial specific problem. The SE comes from the SF era due to their throttling of drives, nobody recommends a SE for Marvell based controller and personally (obviously I can't speak for everyone) I've never seen an increase in speed after doing it.

I did a secure Erase and it made my speeds back to 250 mb/s was around 135 mb before. SE is a great idea worked great for me. restores the blocks back and puts it back to factory performance.

Good stuff. I never heard anyone like the guy above you say "no one recommends secure erase for Marvell drives" that's just untrue. SE's help the drive recover back to where it was, plain and simple. If you do an SE, then copy all of your old files over and only see a marginal improvement, THEN bench, well duh, you just copied over dozens of GB of random files.

370

256GB crucial m4- after a fresh secure erase on the right side, the left side is 3 months later.

Too bad it may soon drop again even though you secure erased. Mine did. It goes up and down on its own lol.

Sean, think this is a firmware issue or something unfixable?

I told you on steam already lol. I don't know for sure. It is probably just an issue with the garbage collection routine or the drive is throttling or something. Crucial is currently looking into the issue.
