Using that CEO link to Samsungs support was useless. They told me I was not living in INDIA so they had no responsibility helping me out. No where could I find that you had to live in INDIA to use that support feature. Swedish support is nice but useless in its own way since they never offer any real answers or useful help.
My parents own one of the effected 840's we have and I asked my mother if she might want to try using the Swedish law that dictates that if a product has a manufacturing flaw you have the right to have it fixed or replaced the 3 first years no mater what the manufactures might wish. If samsung cant or wont fix it with a firmware upgrade then I cant see how the resellers here can deny a RMA case. So samsung might have to take there bad TLC drives back later. We are still waiting to see if media picks it up and Samsung responds with some real answers but if that dont pan out I will most likley start doing RAM claims using this very law in Sweden since there is more then enough evidence to support my claim.
I have returned faulty hardware with less prof of manufacturing defects so dont see a problem other then the hassle is self to find replacement drives to keep the systems running while the drives are being replaced and th work involved in taking the effected systems apart and migrating the software.
Ran the new test program on the Samsung 840 500GB (No EVO)
IT has two partitions, C for windows and D for storage.
Pretty much what i expected.
Samsung 840 is just as effected as the EVO.Edited by G4Virus - 9/14/14 at 12:29pm
