SSD firmware update …

Usually we update the firmware of the SSDs before we begin with the tests.
To the point of testing time however no new firmware was found at Mach Xtreme Technology, so that for all tests the original firmware version 2.1 was used.
In the meanwhile Mach Xtreme Technology offers a new firmware version 2.32 for download, but unfortunately we had to return the SSD directly after review, so it was not possible to test it agian with the newer firmware.
