I should add that Intel does state:
Intel recommends that end users Download this firmware update tool and upgrade your SSD
What Intel doesn't do, and should do, is provide information as to any enhancements/improvements over previous 02HA firmware.
The upgrade process is to me quite simple.
Yes, I guess that was what I was wondering - what is the benefit of updating? You would think that if there was a real benefit over the 0H2A firmware (like improved performance, say) Intel would be trumpeting it. Instead they just say it's "to fix the issue with the firmware update process". Since my SSD already has the 0H2A update I don't see the benefit, and I'm a bit hesitant to make a (possibly unnecessary) firmware alteration on a drive that cost me A$400.
They do say that it "provides Trim support" but that was what the 0H2A update was supposed to provide in the first place. Has anybody got any information about any real improvements from this update for the 80GB? It would be nice if Intel could give it better sequential write performance (like the 160GB), especially since they now trail Indilinx-based drives in this respect.
