if i'd known then what i know now...

Make no mistake this drive is quick but my gripe is that despite coming with toolbox software to tell you whether or not you need to update the firmware this is not possible from within Windows and worse, it is not possible with any data on the drive. It's not destructive firmware as such because it simply won't install if there is data on the drive 'unable to perform update: drive not empty'
As mine shipped with v3 firmware and v5 is out and i was having some power cycling issues I had to wipe the drive and install windows all over again. With hindsighty I wish i'd gone for Corsair or OCZ as this is bound to cause more issues down the line.
