Again with the long-delayed update, I know... I'll try to build a list of members to add to the owners lists in the next day or two. Life might get busy this summer, too, so I may need to plan an ownership transfer for when that happens, pending Sean's opinion (I haven't sent a PM yet, but I will when the time comes). In hindsight it would have been a good idea to do it last year instead of thinking I wouldn't keep getting distracted from updating this more often, but oh well.

Any ideas why my seq write speed and iops are so low? I know it's hardly slow but I can't help but think there's something wrong somewhere, I don't remember it being this bad last time I checked. I also tried AS SSD and the speeds that showed were very slightly slower. (Windows 7 install is only about 5 months old, ran with 1 thread P95 running)

I just built a new system. Windows 8.1, AMD FM2+ Board, SATA in RAID mode. After installing the samsung magician software I get this error message when windows loads:

Magician cannot communicate with the below Samsung SSD(s). Please check with other compatible storage drivers and try again.
1. Samsung SSD 840 SCSI Disk Device (S1DHNSADA07978B)

The drive also shows up as being unsupported by the software?

There does not seem to be a rush and frenzy to update to the new firmware. I have no desire to do so, and I have never heard of anyone changing to an earlier firmware version on a Samsung 840 Pro. I know it has been done on Crucial M4s, but that means nothing. It all depends on the firmware update program, if it checks the target firmware is older than the current firmware, and exits due to that, nothing can be done.

I agree with Igor, and learned my SSD firmware lesson with the Crucial M4, the perfect example of what can happen with SSD firmware. Crucial released the 0009 firmware, which increased the M4's benchmark performance quite a bit, it was a great gift, and the dream of all PC enthusiasts. We hope for the same with each driver or firmware update, but in reality performance enhancements are very rare. After firmware 0009 there was a bug fix in 0309, and after that it was down hill with most of the new firmware versions. The result was a write access time of 0.500ms for the M4, one of if not the worst of any SATA III SSD.

Igor, wasn't it the 040H firmware that was the first bad one for the M4? Not that the firmware made the M4 a bad SSD, but it does not look good having that write access time.

As the old saying goes, Look before you Leap, meaning know what you're getting into before you go there, or use something.

sorry parsec I don't remember what firmware it was,but I am still on 0309 and I don't plan to even look for newer one(I tried all to 070h and came back).I am now sorry I didn't wait 5184 hours with 009.
Problem is that newer firmware are only in 1% performance increase and belivie me you will heard on all bells about that.
In other 99% it is software and hardware compability ,like sas cards and other OS and with that for I don't know what reason comes increase in access time,so if your SSD works great -DONT UPDATE.

How much RAM do you have and how much do you normally utalize?

The regular Samsung 840 SSD's do not support RAPID, that's all.

Update done, as usual let me know if I missed anyone. smile.gif Noticing a lot more EVO owners now than Pro owners, seems like the price gap is still too wide, at least for now. I can only imagine the annoyance if they came out with a new Pro drive at the same price or lower as current EVOs, but with better real-world performance than current Pros. tongue.gif

I'll take an MLC 850 Pro with a write buffer, please! Oh, and PCIe x4. biggrin.gif They're close enough in benchmarks, I think, and also you can't get a 1024GB Pro.
