    The biggest benefit is the lower return rate compared to the BSOD happy Sandforce drives. Good of you to skip that part. Reply

    "and you get the ability to roll your own custom firmware."

    Is that a veiled assertion that OCZ, for example, is lying when it says it writes its own, proprietary, firmware for its SF driven drives?

    I believe OCZ has a special contract with Sandforce to write custom firmware for their drives. No other vendor has that luxury...yet. Reply

    that hasn't stopped OCZ from failing, hard. Reply

    That quote makes me wonder, is that just an "ability", or actually a necessity? Can't they just use firmware directly from Marvell?
    And also, even if they roll their own, and do not update it, will end-users have the ability to switch to Marvell's stock firmware?

    I'll wait for the inevitable recall before I buy one. Reply

    Corsair has had the original performance 3 out for how many months now without a firmware update?? Seven or eight at least??

    Does that mean that they got everything absolutely correct on the first try, or does that mean not to hold you breath waiting on firmware updates on this new drive also?

    Any chance of a review of this Anand? Reply

    I would second this -- any chance a review is coming on this?

    I'd be very curious to see how this stacks up to like of the Crucial M4 and Samsung 830, particularly in the areas of garbage collection on non-TRIM enabled OS's (OSX).
