Were you able to get the replacement sorted out with the seller?If it was just the smart showing random issues I might be able to live with it; but whatever is going on is degrading the performance greatly. I contacted him with the pictures I posted here and asked for a replacement part. Probably need to wait on them to wake up on the left coast to get a response...
He said he would work on it today. Still waiting on a follow up from friday.Were you able to get the replacement sorted out with the seller?
It's "Optimize" in the defragment utility.manually TRIMing the disk might do the same), though I don't know how you would do that in Windows.
I believe eBay has a minimum 2 or 3 day waiting period before you can escalate a case to them for mediation. I'd open a case against the seller for defective item/significantly not as described and see if that speeds up the resolution.How long should I wait on this replacement to ship before getting ebay or paypal involved?
I got the same thing when I had the Samsung NVMe driver installed. It worked fine once I uninstalled that.Mine arrived today.
Not having the best experience, bios sees the drive, but in Windows 10 I get this:
View attachment 11927
View attachment 11928
Unsure if it's an issue with my computer, or the drive.
Don't think it's my computer, as the 960 evo nvme used to be in the slot the PM953 currently occupies.
Any tips to what I could check?
Dont have another computer that supports 22110 nvme drives afaik
I forgot I installed Samsung Magician, and hit install samsung nvme driver inside the app.I got the same thing when I had the Samsung NVMe driver installed. It worked fine once I uninstalled that.
On a side note, I purchased two drives and one had the same slow write speed / Smart failure Propaganda had. Seller was slow to respond (claimed they had an illness) but after 5 days finally sent a prepaid USPS shipping label to return.
