So I finally managed to order a 120GB Ventura Ultra last week (still to arrive).
I'd like to clarify a few doubts:
1. Last week's press release mentions the drives having a transfer rate as 380/326 MB/s - which is significantly slower than the initially advertised rates (and the rates currently advertised by stores) 445/440 MB/s. Is this an error? If not, why the sudden revision of speeds?
2. What is the write endurance of the drive? (write cycles / maximum bytes)
3. Is it necessary for the OS to issue regular TRIM commands or does the drive controller manage it automatically?
4. Is the firmware of the drive updatable?
