Meh, it's only for three different models and it's Softpedia. Unless I'm missing the link for the 250gb model?

Don't bother downloading it through them, update it through Magician.

I'll wait a while before I upgrade. Always overly cautious about firmware updates, especially non critical ones.

Bah. Samsung, please offer the FW updater on OSX. I'm not opening my Macbook again just for a minor upgrade (if at all).

Ugh so much this. frown.gif

You can update without any issues with Samsung Magician via a Windows partition on Bootcamp, though it would be nice for a native OSX updater...

For what it's worth, the update was released ~5 days ago. OCN post.
