Recall of (just-received) Postville drive?

Esteemed Contributor III

I received a Postville (X25-M Gen2) drive Thursday.

Today I received an e-mail from the vendor indicating that they were notified today of a recall on my drive.

(They also left voice mail, without explanation, which I assume is about the same thing.)

I got this too late to call them today, so I can't contact them until Monday.

Does anyone know anything about this? I was just about to install the drive...

UPC on the generic-looking plain brown box is 7 35858 20858 1.

Pack date: 24 JUN 09.

Model number on the box: SSDSA2MH080G2C1,

Model number on the drive: SSDSA2M0808G2GC. 2.5"

FW: 02G2

I got a private message about this from someone at Intel as well. Since I am not affected by the BIOS password problem and will be able to update the firmware myself, I decided to keep my drive. I have been using it for several days, with no problems.

It would be nice if Intel would put a placeholder page at the URL they have indicated will track this issue. So far it just leads to the generic support site.
