Hey, I've just come from this website http://www.cdrinfo.com/tips/hp_oc.shtml

Where it tells you how to change your HP8250i into a faster model, by way of a firmware update. What do u experts think, will it work???

The hardware companies are knowen to package faster products as slower ones to reduce costs. Intel has also done this before (486SX vs DX and some celerons).

If you can flash the drive back then you could try it.
But there is still the risk that you won't be able to go back.
Its really your call.

you should be careful though. If your drive is under warranty, Flashing it will void the warranty.
