    Although this is good news for any owners of these drives, you have to really wonder why OCZ released the drive with such a flaw in the first place.

    To get to market quicker!

    I've no problem with firms releasing products when they know they can do much better with a firmware update, so long as they supply the update.

    No product is ever really finished in the rapidly changing tech world, I just wish more people understood that with software!

    Personally I'd like to see reviews of the new firmware, just to check that it doesn't fix the write issue at the expense of performance elsewhere.

    Same, but only from an enthusiast point of view. It's not as simple if the drives are shipped in assembled systems for an 'average' user. But then, how many average users would have an SSD in the first place...

    You know, when I read in the article about a bright future and saw the orange label, I couldn't help thinking, the future's orange...

    Alas our review model has been returned already =( If we ever get our hands on one again we'll be sure to update results, meanwhile a dedicated storage review website may have one laying around with any luck!

    Anandtech have pledged to post updated results. http://www.anandtech.com/show/5459/o...te-performance

    And I haven't checked but StorageReview will probably do the same.

    Edit: Seems this is a destructive flash: http://www.ocztechnologyforum.com/fo...-a-spare-drive

    I was thinking about buying one of these as they seems to be the fastest available. I would like to see a comparison also.

    This can be looked at two ways....
    1) OCZ released a half0cooked product
    2) OCZ listened to it's customers and brought out new firmware to increase the performance...
