Samsung has promptly addressed concerns from owners of their 990 Pro SSDs with a firmware update that halts any abnormal degradation. We discuss this fix, our plan here at Puget Systems to take care of our customers, and how you can update the firmware on your Samsung SSD.
We have been very public about how reliable Samsung SSDs have been in the past, so we wanted to explain why we are now moving part of our line to Sabrent.
Our systems have moved to almost entirely to solid-state drives (SSDs) for primary storage, making our old video looking at hard drive vs SSD boot times rather outdated. But are all of the SSDs we use equal, or are there benefits to one over another for typical computer usage? We compared four of the Samsung models we carry to see how they compare in boot up, file copy, and application launch times.
