Hi Sean,

I've got a 120GB Ventura Ultra on pre-order with a distributor here in the UK, they already have the 240GB models in stock.

I asked today for an idea on the lead time, and the reply was another 1-2 weeks, and that there was some production delay due to a flash component change forcing a pcb change due to compatibility issues or something.

So, here's my question - have they had an issue/problem forcing this change, or have you changed NAND chips causing an incompatibility ? and in turn necessitating a change ?

Given that the company i am dealing with has the 240GB models in stock, should i just switch my order over to one of those ? or would it be prudent to wait ?

It will likely be a couple of weeks before more Ultras start showing up again at retailers.

The delay with these has been more of BOM issue, a production issue, not a compatibility issue with the drive.

Whether you should get a 240GB or not, that comes down to whether you are willing to wait for the 120GBs.
