Re: 0x00000f4 error on M4 64GB [ Edited ]

We are aware of an issue that is currently affecting a small number of users whereby their m4 causes their system to require a restart. This issue occurs after approximately 5,000 hours of actual “on time” use. Following the initial reboot, the system then requires subsequent restarts after each additional hour of use. However, the data on the SSD is unaffected and will not be lost due to this condition.
Through our investigation, we have determined the root cause of the problem and will be releasing a firmware update that rectifies the situation. We are currently running through our validation and compatibility process. Once this process is complete, the firmware will be made available to our customers. Although we understand the desire of some people to start using unreleased firmware now, we want to ensure that our solution works across multiple chipsets, systems, and operating systems before publishing the release code. We are currently targeting the week of January 16th, 2012 to publicly release the new firmware update.
We understand the impact that this is having on some users right now and apologize for this inconvenience. We appreciate your continued support, feedback, and patience as we finalize code and resolve this issue.

Reason: bold and red
Nice price. I think I picked mine up a while back from Newegg for the same price. I actually just had to RMA mine back to Crucial.
It ran fine for about 6 months and then my PC would randomly start rebooting back to the BIOS screen and hang until I powered the PC down and back on. I could never get it to work correctly after that.
I still would buy it again as they seem to be one of the more reliable drives. The amount of failures are small compared so some other drives.
I actually have a C300 64 GB drive that I've been meaning to upgrade for a while now. Had the drive for a year now runs flawlessly. Was about to pull the trigger last night for the M4 128 GB before the price drop, glad I waited.
Much cheaper for roughly the same amount of space.
Crucial M4 is the best SSD drive around. forget about benchmark and all. Crucial M4 does not have the problem of the sandforce 3. Even if people are claiming that they have actually fix this problem i would be carefull cause this'll be your boot drive which is the one you want to avoid any problems. Crucial M4 is the #1 (with intel) in reliability. 99% would be crash, blu screen problem free. Corsair GT is a little faster but remember all sandforce use compression and decompression to achive such speed, while M4 don't.
