No question they're a bleeding edge company, so yeah, wait for firmware stability
on any particular model.  Right now, they seem to have achieved that for all
of their existing Sandforce based products.   No updates since last fall.

And when they do issue an update, one doesn't have to figure out how to boot
some strange commerical O/S just to apply it.  :)

They support Linux.  Rare.
