YES the next firmware version on our X-Series Drives Version 2.0 will have G/C and TRIM support for Windows 7 and new production drives will have this firmware on them.
The update utility will follow soon is all I can say about it ATM so please do not ask. But the update utility has been the issue and once this has been resolved we will post it.
The update utility itself, not the firmware, has shown to be problematic.
The problems include failure to work on certain chipsets all the way up to "bricking" drives. We prefer our customers to have working drives until we are satisfied with the update utility which we expect soon from Indilinx.
However, to my surprise this solid state drive failed after only about a year of regular use. I've never had a drive fail on me so fast. After testing the ssd in multiple computers on all kinds of different settings, I confirmed that the drive had failed. The failure happened out of the blue with almost no warning. I did notice that a few days before the ssd's failure it had trouble booting and would lock up occasionally (a problem I assumed to be associated with something else). Long story short I bit the bullet for not backing up my system. Thankfully the warranty covers 2 years as explicitly stated on Amazon (3 years on their website). Outside of failure the drive ran with relatively few problems and extremely fast, as expected of ssd's which is why I'm giving it 2 stars.
In my personal opinion the selling point of these overpriced drives is the reliability. However, after reading about the frequent failure of these ssd's (and my own drive's failure) I would recommend a one tb hdd over this ssd any day. Save yourself the time, money and heartache. The amount of storage, price and reliability are much better trade offs than for the speed of this problematic drive. I highly unrecommended this product as an experienced computer/technology enthusiast.
Maybe OS X doesn't play well with these Indilinx-based drives, I don't know. It didn't seem especially fast compared to a normal hard drive under Windows through a Boot Camp partition, but that's probably more the OS's fault than the drive's.
To Amazon's immense credit, customer service helped me out a lot so I don't have to deal with Corsair trying to replace the defective drive a second time - but I'm probably going to just auction off the second replacement and buy a drive from a different manufacturer.
At least on Macs, I'd keep well away from this product. It's lightning-fast when it works, but it's just not reliable. Maybe you'll have better luck on Windows-based systems.
