This seemed rather interesting at first, until I stopped looking at the charts and re-read the introduction, which states that they are all test pages that Microsoft wrote. They do, however, say that they were developed in conjunction with the W3C. Though I wonder how the IE9 PP would fair against the same competitors in a test that they had no hand in laying out.

I highly suggest contacting them and asking for this firmware update if you have a 3.AAK drive, as the performance difference is quite noticable, as you can tell by looking at the 3.AAE performance versus 3.AAK firmware. Looks like they found whatever the problem was! If whoever you end up contacting doesn't know about the 3.AAM firmware update yet, ask them to contact another person there going by "Alan TS49" as that's who I had success with. He was apparently in direct contact with the engineers that write their firmware, and should be able to help get you straightened away. http://www.fluffles.net/forum/storage/34.3#895
