Errant update borks Samsung 850 Pro SSDs

Fuzz

So it turns out that IT stuff sometimes breaks. If you can't afford to be without your computer for the amount of time it takes Samsung to RMA your drive then I suggest that you need.

1. A spare drive

2. A warranty with next day or 4 hour support that will come out and replace parts when they go wrong

3. A spare computer

If you don't have these things then you need to be asking yourself the question, "Did I need to install a firmware update on my SSD?"

Did the firmware update fix a bug you were personally experiencing? Did the firmware update provide some new functionality that you couldn't live without?
