    Hi,

    Since yesterday I have troubles with my mac os partition, I get a lot beach balls, and the system sometimes get freeze, I think it might be my crucial m4, but before this I havent got this issues, but the strange thing is that my windows partition works without any problems.

    Do you guys know what can this be, I have the ssd since october.

    Thanks,

    I'm having the same issue. Started happening about 2-3 days ago on my (up until then) flawless MacPro with M4 128GB. I have 0009 firmware. I read that after a certain amount of operating hours (~5400) the m4 goes into some weird power save mode or something after ONE hour of operation. Apparently there's a firmware update out for it, I've updated to 000F, we'll see if it helps...

    Hi, I managed to fix it in sort of a rare way, in my macbook pro, I have the ssd and the HDD that came with it, what I did is format the HDD and everything fixed, I had my home folder in the HDD so I guess something happened that made the HDD faulty. But I wasn't sure and already ordered a samsung 830 which I am using now, and the crucial will leave to my PC. The strange thing is that on windows it worked without problems.

    Updating to the 000F firmware fixed my issue.
