    This topic caught my eye as I have a Crucial Real SSD C300 3.5 : 80 GB SATA 6Gb/s : Firmware Rev: 0002. Spec as shown on case label.
    I installed this in my computer, and due to the low capacity only used it for the O/S (Win7 64 bit), all other programs were put on another SATA HD.
    Bit I had so many problems that I decided enough! And replaced it with a WD 10000 rpm 150 GB HD, which has performed faultlessly.
    Now I am wondering if a firmware update to the SSD Crucial may have cured the relevant problems. Would it be worth reinstalling?
    Though would have to reformat etc, or what ever might be required, to install a fresh copy of Win7 64 bit.
    Or would it have a second hand value?
    Vista Basic Premium 64 bit, AKASA Mirage case, Gigabyte GA-MA790X-DS4, Athlon Phenom II 940 BE, 4 x 2Gb DDR2 Corsair 800Mhz, 1 WD 150GB Velociraptor HD, 2 SATA II HDs (2x1Tb F1 Samsung), MSi N560GTX-Ti Twin Frozr II, Twin 22" WS Monitors display coupled, Thermaltake 750 Wt. Modular PSU, Linksys WAG160N, Epson 1290s Printer.

    the C300 doesn't have this bug, i've used a C300 64GB 0002 firmware drive for a long time without problem.
