ThinkVantage System Update with ThinkPad T410/T510

Simple enough question: Will System Update pull down everything I need for my T510 or am I better off manually downloading individual pieces from Driver + Downloads?

Last i checked, you'll be better off doing it manually.  As per a discussion I've been having in the other forum, there may have been an error in the updater:

That may have been fixed by now.

Even on the t500 series the TVSU doesn't download the most up to date updates.  I am sure this is more of an issue with new products then it is with older product lines.  However especially with windows7 the tvsu is missing some of the newer driver updates (it also never updated my power manager past 3.05)
