I bet the 850 EVO would have been released already if this hadn't come to light.

Nah, the release date was set a while ago. You will see the 850 EVO soon tho. ;)

HD tune seems fine. Only problem I have seen is that IOPs are way off, and have read numerous posts about ppl having IOPs issue. Mine does not reach 90k.

This Samsung 840 Vanilla also shows the slow reads that Samsung claims do not exist.
Drive belongs to a friend of me...

I still think my wife's drive around 18 no to 2 years old shows how bad the drives need updated. 40% of a ssd capacity should not be under 50mb/s

Well I got a response from my retailer.
According to them Samsung has not made an official statement on the 840 issue BUT according to my retailer they have been told that the 840 suffers from a problem not related to the 840 EVO and that Samsung are aware of the 840 issues and are working on it. At this time Samsung has no official information or confirmation nor a deadline on a 840 fix I was told.

Now I personally dont believe the problem to be different, they use different TLC NAND, 21nm for 840 and 19nm for 840 EVO but any way lets say Samsung are hones, then the bug what ever it is acts very much the same to the users except the time frame then.

Theory is that the die shrink is the reason why it appears faster on the evo than the original tlc 840. Six total models have been produced by samsung with tlc nand. Two use 19nm tlc and the other 4 use 21nm tlc.

Yea an thats the theory I share. So the problem should be the same. Only change is the time frame. But if Samsung sees the problem is something else it cant be the shrink.
But I dont believe anything Samsung has to say now days.

I just think Samsung is stalling if anything.
