Intel seem to be getting their act together:

so let's hope Samsung are too.

We knew this already.
The big question, which nobody seems to be able to answer so far, if at least in THEORY Samsung's FW can be updated. It appears there's a chance it might not be possible at all. If that's true, we're all screwed.

If it shouldnt be possible to upgrade then corsair is making a HUGE misstake to write here: http://www.corsair.com/products/ssd_...e/default.aspx that its acctually possible, atleast in the extreme series to upgrade the firmware as a regular user. They know someone would go hunt them with the law if they stated that this is possible if its not.

So dont worry :)

it has been stated a bunch of times that IF & WHEN a user update is available it would be made public.
i have never seen a dead horse be beaten so many times as in these kinds of threads.
sure buyers remorse is a bytch but if the consumer did all the proper research and makes an educated decision to buy knowing that all the "condiments" to the item have NOT been sorted yet, then he has no entitlement to complain.
if someone buys the drive without doing any or enough research well the he only has himself to blame.

would you buy a car if you knew you couldnt ever replace the tires but there may be a way to change them in the future but dont know when?

come on, properly educate yourself before buying anything. all this whining is harshing my mellow.

yeah great more oil on the flames.
so it's a dead horse then, is it?
your comparison with a car doesn't fit at all, because we all know what a car is supposed to do. but SSDs are an evolving technology. in my case, im not even new to SSDs, i've had the first gen ones in my computers 2 years ago. i DID my homework and read reviews of the P128, telling me all about TRIM, and that one must get the latest firmware for that. so following the advice on here ("all our drives are delivered with latest firmware") I went for it, and what do you know, i pulled a duff one.
so if it's all been my own fault for being stupid and uneducated then yeah go ahead and diss me some more!
im sure that im not the only one who feels that it's not the not knowing WHEN a new FW becomes available is the problem (tell me it comes in February 2010, fine i'll wait), but the fact that not even the IF can be established, when surely someone at Samsung has an answer. even if the answer is NO then at least i can plan my next move, sell it for something different or whatever.

I think what Synthohol is trying to express to you and everyone else is what I have stated so many times it is really getting old repeating it.

I am sorry as we do not have any update to report at this time officially, but I would expect some information soon.

We do not have any updates at this time and trust me when I do I will be posting it right away. You are not the only person asking this and for sure we are working on a new release but there is no ETA available.

naujoks was referring to the Performance series (Samsung) whereas the Extreme series is Indillix. Different scenarios.

Looks like the Samsung/Corsair early adopters are SOL on this one.
"Update: Intel just gave us its official statement on the matter:

Yes, we have been contacted by users with issues with the firmware upgrade for our 34nm SSDs and we are investigating. We take all sightings and issues seriously and are working toward resolution. We have temporarily taken down the firmware link while we investigate."
