A week ago Samsung acknowledged the existence of the read performance bug in the SSD 840 EVO and I just received a note that the fixed firmware is in validation process and is expected to be released to the public on October 15th. Unfortunately I don't have any further details about the bug or the fix at this point, or whether the update is coming to the 'vanilla' SSD 840 and OEM models, but I hope to get more details as the public release gets closer, so stay tuned.

    Scunmonk how exactly did you do it? I'm running evo's in 2 macbook pro's and couldn't work out how to upload firmware to the drive which is running osx 10.9. How did you get it into a DOS set up to start with - I have downloaded the fixes to USB and a dvd and couldn't upload. Apologies for my lack of knowledge and thank you for any help!!! Reply
