SG300-20 V02 Firmware

I've looked for quite a while now with no luck.
I have SG300-20 switches which also report they are SRW2016-K9 V02.
What is the latest firmware release that's compatible with these switches?
A link would be great (for the answer, not the firmware)!

Two things at play there.  The first is regularly activity on cisco support, the other is that the device in question is a purchase for cisco, not in house product.  No worries.

Just on future note, when you look at cisco support for IOS, firmware, etc.  The version numbers aren't really the differentiator.  They increment with every little code change (go check the code available for 2900 series router for a good example).  Any code that you see on the download page for a particular device will generally work.  What does differ is capability and stability/bug fixes.  Those differences are determined via revision name extensions (ip base, adv. ip serv., etc) and version research respectively.

There should be a model label on the back panel of the switch.  It will be located with the serial number label.  What model of switch does that label note the switch being?

Scratch my prior, they are the same device.

Latest firmware version is 1.4.8.06

Cisco link to download:

https://software.cisco.com/download/release.html?mdfid=283019616&softwareid=282463181&release=1.4.8.06&relind=AVAILABLE&rellifecycle=&reltype=latest

Searched Cisco support against the key SRW2016 to find the firmware.

My question arises because there are 3 "release" series on the left side of that page.  
1.4
1.1
1
And there are the full lists of releases:
1.4 which includes 1.4.8.06
1.1 which includes 1.1.2.0
1 which includes 1.4.1.0.3

But, I can't find where V02 fits here.  If the versions are 0,1,2 then it's implied that it's 1.4.8.06.
If the versions are 1,2,3 then it's implied that it's 1.1.2.0.
But it just doesn't say explicitly.
So, how does one confidently align V02 with 1.4.8.06?

The SRW2016-K9 V02 is the cisco branded version of the linksys SRW2016.  You can get image verification of this easiest.  Run an image search for SRW2016-K9 V02 and SRW2016.  Simply put, the SRW2016 was a production switch when cisco bought linksys so all on shelf and in public devices were branded linksys.  If memory serves, all legacy linksys equipment was supported by linksys and cisco only supported/s cisco branded equipment.

In other words, the V02 has nothing to do with your licensing requirement.  Same equipment just different case color and badges.  All the guts are the same and same firmware.

I was asking about hardware model vs. firmware version.  I'm aware of the product line Linksys/Cisco purchase, etc.  All I'm trying to do is update the firmware and want the firmware version I install to match the hardware model before I proceed.  But, I can't find a lineup of model / version or any notes that address it.  Yet, it appears there are 3 firmware version types.

The link that I sent is the firmware for your model.  If you want to trace it yourself, take the model number SRW2016 and use it as your search parameter in support/software search.  Returns will give you SG-300 and small business stackable switches.  Select SG-300 (this is the model re-number following cisco taking over production).  you will be presented with managed switch MIB and switch firmware, select firmware.  You will be presented with firmware selection screen as in the link above.  Any of the firmware listed in the list will be compatible with your device.  The differences in "types" are actually releases.  The difference isn't in the model number in the releases.  It will be in date of release, language support, potentially functionality.  You can pick any one of the three releases and have them work with your device.  Preferably newest release.

Are you able to run a show ver or otherwise capture the current firmware version?

Thanks.  
They include 1.1.2.0. 1.3.0.62 and 1.4.2.4.
The differences in "types" are actually releases.  The difference isn't in the model number in the releases.
I would have hoped that this would be the case but find no way to tell from the Cisco website / docs.  So, clearly you know better than I!
