Is it all that necassary to update Firmware for SSD's if I am not having any problems with my current version?

Corsair have brought out a new one for my series of SSD in the past few days and I am trying to decide whether or not to update it. I have heard that it can have bad results at times. I like to have everything up to date. I have never done an SSD Firmware update before.
 
There is an old saying 'if it ain't broke don't fix it'.
If you are happy with the speeds and your SSD is stable then stay put.
I have read stuff that you can risk data corruption. So maybe make a back up.
If you do update let's know as I have seen the same firmware upgrade
