[TR] Some 840 EVOs still vulnerable to read speed slowdowns - Page 24

Do the pros suffer from this, 840 & 850?

850 and the Pro series not have the issue.

It wreaks havoc with read speeds on old data. It has no effect on writes.

As you fill your drive, your write speeds will decrease.

Sammy should do a recall on these things where you can register your SSDs to a website and they ship you 850s with a box/shipping label to send back your 840s.

I haven't done it but I'm pretty sure you can run the DOS version of the performance restoration tool without breaking your RAID.

A month!? What has the discussion been?
It takes about three days for them to reply to the last email I sent them which is firstly getting very frustrating. Secondly we have finally gotten to the point where they are attempting to contact Challengers in Singapore, the shop I originally bought the drive from, as Samsung South Africa does not have any international warranty support. The last email I got from them last week Friday was just to confirm they had received my last email. This is getting EXTREMELY tedious.

Nope, just double-checked..

Even if that's the case it wouldn't be that difficult to disable RAID, update, and enable it again. That said, regardless if you're using RAID or not it is smart to backup your drives before doing any sort of firmware upgrade.

 

Unfortunately the "performance restoration tool" doesn't do anything in the long term - you'll have the same problem in 3 months. You're better off running DiskFresh every 3 months and hoping for a real fix or complaining until Samsung refunds your money.

I remembered that I still haven't reviewed the SSDs since I've bought them from Newegg. wink.gif

I knew there was something up with speeds. I keep a relatively low footprint on Windows 7 in regards to software and thought the bogged down speeds / load up times were from me keeping my most recent W7 install for 6+ months (used to re-install it every 2 or so weeks with all of my hardware changes).

Anyway, 10 days later after running the restoration app, speeds are still normal. If they start to bog down at all in the next 20 days, I'll most likely be looking for a new 1TB SSD since I don't want to be needing to run this every few weeks. A month is my limit, and even then, it's semi-frustrating... especially since the 850 doesn't seem to have this issue. I'll be keeping an eye on this thread + Samsung to see how they handle this to determine if I want to support these guys again.

The restoration app seems to help a bit but it doesn't fix anything. Somewhere around 3 months in you'll start noticing slow speeds again.
