Its most likely a Bigfoot controller limitation, but than could just be the ICH 9 I'm using. I'm in the process of working on a new testbed: i7 920 w/ the newest Marvel "sata 3.0" controller. :)

I can honestly say I was very impressed with the newest firmware & TRIM, but where it has cell life to burn (100k) I've actually gone with the ITGC (1.4.1) firmware. Its a bit faster than 1.4 and while its harder on the cells....its not THAT much harder! Hell to be honest I love this SSD. It has replaced my Torqx 128 (fastest of the 3 MLC Indilinx I reviewed) in my laptop as my "goto SSD" as it has made win 7 even faster.
