Hilbert, according to the AS SSD screenie your unit has firmware 1.02!

I bought this unit over a month ago and it came with f/w 1.01 and I just looked for 1.02 on Plextor Digitals site but they only have 1.01!! Is that firmware available or is this a case of special treatment just for the review

Pretty quick, but damn expensive.
I have to choose a new SSD for Christmas, they have well and truly priced themselves out.

For the 256GB version, I wonder if those 260Euros include UK VAT at 20% ?!
For 150 inc vat, I can have a Vertex 4 256GB for example.

Hilbert maybe you could help I bought mine over 2 months ago and on their support forum they are very reluctant to answer/help much. My post over there yesterday is still unanswered. Any help I would be greatful for. Thanks

Just wondering if the release notes for 1.02 are available as well? Just because 1.02 is 'out there' doesn't mean we actually need it unless it fixes some nasty bug!!

1.0 was initial release
1.01 was so Plextool could be used
1.02 was submitted for the review for some reason, not to look bad I imagine

OCz have just released the Vector, its as quick as the Samsung 840 pro and is a bit cheaper than the Plextor.
Beyond my budget still, but a step in the right direction.
If they have an xmas sale...

Lol, if you kept waiting to see if anything better comes out a few weeks later you'd never buy anything!!

I'm hamstrung with my M5 Pro because i'm only on SATAII, but it's still quicker than my HDD's. Might upgrade to a 2011 board next year when prices come down a bit.
