    hd looks fine to me.
    did you bench this drive before?

    what I would do now:
    1)uninstall this drive from "device manager"
    reboot
    2)install intel rapid storage
    and check again

    Can someone pinpoint me to the Samsung Spinpoint M8 thread? I've tried searching everywhere for it and yet it seems to have completely vanished....and I really want to look at it one more time.

    Thanks, I did got some increase, I'm gonna order a new one for RAID 0 now, and I got a question:

    Asus don't say anywhere and I didn't find in BIOS if my notebook (N53SV-SX1) supports hardware raid, will it be aceptable with software raid? I dont know any software or have done any raid yet, still reading about it...

    Thanks for the help, I will make sure to also spread the knowledge ;D

    Well, it seems I'll be reviving this thread.

    I have a HP OEM 7200.4 500GB (ST9500420AS, original firmware 0006HPM1) with an annoying clicking noise problem. Updated it with Dell's 0005SDM1 and clicking noise is gone but smart values have gone haywire - especially the temperature (~240*C).

    Then re-updated with 0004SDM1 and temps are lower (~140*C) :). Any suggestion as to what I should do?

    Any other firmware I might try?

    Hello.

    I have got ST9500420AS in my laptop. My friend is selling his ST9500420ASG. Is it worth to set up RAID 0 with ST9500420AS and ST9500420ASG or should I buy another, the same drive which is ST9500420AS ?

    Can I disable Free Fall Protection in ST9500420ASG and make it ST9500420AS ?

    This used to be the data drive on my previous laptop, it died suddenly, did anyone experience the same problem? mine is a ST9500420AS firmware 0002SDM1. I still keep the drive hoping i'll be able to retrieve the data.
