[KitGuru] Samsung botches 960 Pro SSD firmware update

post #1 of 54

It’s no secret that Samsung continuously impresses us with its line of SSDs, however its latest update might have botched it for owners of Samsung’s 960 Pro drives. Reports have been cropping up that its latest firmware is causing instability across the board, and while Samsung is aware of the problem, it might not receive an immediate fix.

PSA: Don't update your firmware until this is resolved!

Does this only apply to the Pro models or can EVOs be affected as well?

Thanks for the heads up, I’ll be sure not to update. When did this latest update release?

Hopefully they update it faster than they release updates for Samsung Magician lol.

I am glad I have gone with the EVO's and not the PRO's now smile.gif

Back when I was a pioneer in the emerging SSD market a "botched" firmware was cross your fingers not to lose data or brick the whole drive, this seems like a minor inconvenience.

Indeed, I remember the days a botched firmware would cause some serious issues but bad SSD updates tend to just slow things down until a fix comes out.

I wonder if they botched the 850 pro's firnware too. My 850 pro seems slower after I updated it's firmware.
