Although the xc3028-v27.fw generated from
HVR-12x0-14x0-17x0_1_25_25271_WHQL.zip using the above process works fine
for me, the firmware is a couple of years old now and I can't help
wondering if there might be a newer version in the latest Windows drivers
out there containing performance or stability fixes it in.

Do you think it would be worthwhile extracting a newer version of firmware?
