    Update: Crap, I just read this post on the Mushkin support forums. The Marvell sata 6g controller on my mobo maxes out at those speeds. I still really like the drive and this is still the best deal out there. Anyone with a newer motherboard shouldn't have the same problem just do you're research.

    Sadly I will live with these numbers, as I can't justify a mobo swap , hell going from a 7200rpm hdd to a ssd even at them speeds is well worth it imho.

    FYI Amazon has price matched the egg.

    Anyone know if this drive will need a firmware update out of the box?

    you trying to poopoo a drive?

    there really should be a unthanks button

    EDIT: seriously waht the hell. 10 aint even a natural binary number. Unless you mean the number of people that understand binary. Those that do and those that do not.
    I didn't post a benchmark but after reading this I checked mine and it auto loads at 4QD and maxes at 10QD. Is this because any higher is not supported?

    I don't really go by the reviews to be honest, how many people buy the item and don't make positive reviews? Probably thousands. I think the only time I write a review is when something doesn't work.

    I do to some extent, when I see lots of DOA I normally look at another product. DOA is pretty hard to screw up.

    It seems that way with a lot of ssd drives excluding maybe the crucial m4's. I thought mine was messed up at first with bsod's but I upgraded my video card at the same time and my rig was just overheating. Got that sorted out and it's been rock solid.

    Without even reading the reviews extensively I would be willing to bet the majority of bad reviews are from before the Sandforce firmware update that fixed issues including the BSOD bugs that affected all Sandforce drives. Try sorting them by date and see if more recent reviews are better.
