The results on this drive are a bit strange. It looks like Corsair needs to refine their firmware on this SSD.

if they will ever do it and if a firmware upgrade will be enough to fix the problem.

We're working with Corsair to try to help them replicate our numbers...this is the first they've seen of results like this. Hopefully it's something minor.

I know there is a little more activity on this in the 240GB review of this drive, but, in the intrest of staying on topic, I wanted to post here.

I’m extremely interested in purchasing a few of these 120GB versions, but the numbers worry me.

Especially, the hit it takes on non-compressible data. I understand all SSD’s take a hit there but going from 456MB/s to 162MB/s is pretty unacceptable.

Did firmware fix this? The thread on the 240GB version eluded to it, but is there anything solid?
