Please post a a screen shot from Crystal Disk Info but most likely it was just entered wrong at the factory also post a pic of the label off of the drive please.

That's not an F120! That's a much older F100. Where did you get it?

Still, they aren't that much older compare to each other. They should still have the same firmware.

There was a batch of pre-release F100's that had a very old firmware version before the low power state was disabled. I don't know if the F100 ever made it to the market with this firmware or not. It's possible that it has, or, you ended up with a pre-release drive.

Can you answer my question as to where you got it? A reseller? eBay?

You should just wait for the response of an official Corsair rep before you assume anything. Don't take my word for it.

You can contact yellowbeard if you want to "try" the 1.1a firmware..but it has a lot of problems right now. If I were you I would just wait until the next version is released in late sept/early oct like everybody else and grab that version.

Are you having any problems with 0.2? Your drive looks like it's in pretty good condition right now. If you're not having any problems, definitely just keep it with 0.2, since 1.0 and 1.1 and 1.1a have a lot of problems!

When'd you get it?

FYI that pre-release firmware never got into the wild.

If anything the pre-release firmware was faster than the updated firmware.

As I said you can get the 1.1a release by PMing yellowbeard. There are currently no public released firmware updates for the Force drive. 1.1a still has a lot of problems so if I were you I would check back in a couple weeks for the next major release, which will be publicly downloadable.

PS thanks to the mod for splitting this topic.

After doing some research it looks like 0.2 is using sandforce 3.0.1 RC. But you never answered my question, are you having the famous BSOD bug?
