i have not yet posted on there as i dont have an account on there. but i see nothing about my version.i have not been having much trouble with the drive. so far it froze on me 2x thats it but if it continues i will flash the bios if its not the latest. if the versions are the same then i will want to send it back because of the recall. website also says not to flash bios if there are no problems.

I would return it if possible. There are still issues for some users even with the latest drives with the latest firmware.

I think the difference in version #'s you listed is the exact same drive, but shipped with different firmware on them.

Even though you just bought it did you update the firmware. I just bought a Corsair Force GT and was having a few problems so I updated the firmware , even though I just got it the firmware it came with was 1.3 and the update was 1.3.2 , once I did the update no more problems.

i will test more and see if it freezes again, if it does then i will update firmware. corsair website states not to update if there are no problems. the only reason i ask is because there are some performance issues for the version above and if i have that version i would want to send it back because of the recall. so far performance seems correct. WEI rates it at 7.8 read and write speeds are good also. i just have a feeling the freezing will continue. 1 minute is a long time of freezing.
