I doubt it's that big of an issue though. If you have a traditional hard drive the C300 will be faster in 95% or better of the situations you put it through.


Yeah, the access time alone should see to that :)

apparently it's only a safe purchase for Linux and Windows 7 as there is no manual trim utility.

Good to hear they still make improvements when the C400 is released, or is about to be...
I must say I'm very happy with my C300 64GB in my HTPC! It boots in a snap :mrgreen:

I'd be willing to do that. It'd be nice to see some before/after benches on a XP SP3 system using C300 + wiper.sh

Release Date: 04/26/2011
Change Log:
•Improved product reliability.
•Resolved performance anomaly which resulted in brief, intermittent pause in drive response time for some users.
Note: This is firmware from Revision 0006 to Revision 0007. It will not work for updating between any other versions. If your drive has Revision 0001 firmware, then you MUST first perform the intermediate step of updating to Revision 0002. If your drive has Revision 0002 firmware, then you MUST first perform the intermediate step of updating to Revision 0006.
