I was running the first update of the firmware issued for this drive. When things started going wrong, I updated to the latest SSD firmware and updated my BIOS to the latest firmware as well with not much luck.
There were times after the OS became unresponsive that I would try to restart and I would get a boot01 error. I would try to boot again after a few min and it would work again. Just now I was trying to watch videos on youtube after they were done loading and they'd be choppy. I was also listenin to Pandora and moving photos around and the music became choppy as well.
Not sure what else to do. I've ran memtest and everything seemed fine in the RAM dept. The system is at all stock settings.
Overall, the system isn't as snappy as it used to be and I've just reinstalled a fresh copy of Win7/64 about a month ago. Things take a few seconds to open up (programs/installation.exes).
S.M.A.R.T. info below.
There has to be a file midding or a problem withing the install or firmware.
SSD's hardly ever die
