Any thing that expands the life of these drives are worth it esp since the outlay for such drive is quite expensive.

Good on them for sticking at it. just proves good customer support ....

As far as I know, yes. Although I would back up before hand just in case.

They weren't designed for SSDs and they add tons of unneeded reads and writes

SSDs don't need defragging cos they can access any part of the drive at the same speed

This is why Windows7 disables defrag on a drive if it detects it as an SSD

Hi SwaleSmith

The last I heard, samsung sent a beta flasher to OCZ, but asked for it not to be released to the public and said they were working on a public release.

But Tony has said that if UK peeps really want the latest 18C Summit firmware asap, you can contact him to send it for flashing or Ryder for US customers.
