How to Upgrade SSD Firmware
SSD manufacturers issue firmware updates over the lifetime of a solid state drive. The firmware updates often address technical issues and bugs that are revealed once the SSDs are sold into the market. Sometimes a new SSD firmware can also offer performance improvements, along with better host system compatibility and drive reliability.
Upgrading an SSD's firmware though isn't always as simple or intuitive as perhaps it should be. The upgrade process can be even more difficult for those without an optical drive and spare media. StorageReview.com breaks down the SSD firmware upgrade process by brand to help clarify the process, giving both a standard firmware upgrade process overview, along with instructions to use a bootable USB drive to upgrade SSD firware where possible.
