0009 firmware will also improve the m4 SSD's PCMark Vantage score if that tickles your fancy. The new firmware also addresses issues with chipset compatibility and a bug that caused teh drive to fail intermittently on a cold boot. Although those problems didn't affect everyone, it's good to see Crucial on top of things.
