Samsung Confirms 990 Pro SSD Firmware Fix Coming Soon

The ongoing drama regarding Samsung SSDs may soon come to a positive resolution, according to recent comments from Samsung. “Samsung stands behind the quality of its SSDs, including the new NVMe M.2 SSD 990 PRO,” wrote Samsung in a statement (translated) to Computer Base. “We are aware of the reports on this issue and are currently investigating the matter as user configurations vary.”

However, a moderator for the official Samsung Community discussion board (opens in new tab) offered additional insight on the matter. DavidB stated that he talked with the company’s SSD technicians and that “Samsung is currently reviewing customer anomaly inquiries related to the SMART Percentage Used (on Samsung Magician) and/or Health Status (on Crystal Disk Info) of the Samsung SSD 990 PRO.” Critically, DavidB acknowledged that the technicians were able to replicate the diminished SSD health claims from customers “under certain terms of use.”
