Just send that whole section you have there, that is what I did.

I almost sent the other label on the opposite side of the box myself, but I realized before it was to late that that you have in the picture is what I needed to send. lol

I have the same rebate. Looks like several of us took advantage of it. ;P I was a little skeptical of going with Plextor but all the reviews I could find were raving so I figured I'd give it a chance (I was torn between Plextor, Crucial M4, and Vertex 4). I have read there is no real performance gain by updating the firmware to 1.02, just slightly better garbage collection efficiency. Do you still think it is worth it to update?

If you have no issue and don't feel like it then don't bother, I updated mine tho.

Yea 1.01 is working fine for me. I don't have a CD drive installed but maybe I'll pop one in and update just for the heck of it.

Do you guys just go with the drivers that Windows originally uses for it? Are there any updated drivers anywhere (I can't find any so I'm guessing maybe not)? This is my first SSD so please excuse my noobness doh.gif

Hmmm ... you don't need an optical drive to flash firmware ... did you see post #119 / page 12 of this very thread? rolleyes.gif

For optimal performance you want the latest Intel IRST driver, assuming that's your chipset as your sys specs aren't showing redface.gif
