If you're running Windows 7 and not the 34nm based drive, I don't see where the toolbox is necessary with the new firmware.

If you have the 34nm based drive, it's supposed to improve the write speed.

If you're not running Windows 7, it's like a manual TRIM utility.

Does this sound correct?

i was just about to say be careful, wasn't there reports last time about either firmware or trim tool causing drives to fail or loosing data (something a long those lines?)
