Re: New Crucial MX300 525GB - Reallocated Sector Count

I am with targetbsp as to FTL mapping thing.

And I have never heard of sleep mode damaging SSDs because of writing into single sector - right now I have two notebooks I am putting into sleep and/or hibernation all the time, and my personal notebook is put into sleep/hibernation multiple times per day.

I think so, I never heard of sleep mode damaging SSDs, only thing to be aware of is hibernation wearing down SSD. 

 

I have new drive, I swapped sata cable (genuine ASUS provided with mainboard), I disabled sleep mode. (sleeping of harddisk was already disabled, as well hibernation).

 

What do you think of firmware updating?? Isnt better to leave it to factory default bios?

The arguments for and against are much the same as software.  'If ain't broke, don't fix it' vs 'i want the latest version as it'll have bug fixes and/or features'
