    That update process is complete ball ache though, no? Not even half that bad for other SSDs.

    How come Crucial and others can make firmware updates that are non-destructive and work under AHCI but OCZ can't? That info puts me right off their drives even before I try them.

    if you just got it in, can you check it's real-world performance before and after the update? (assuming it has not been updated before you got it)
