With the latest 2B2QEXM7 firmware on the EVO 970 Plus with my Hackintosh yes, the EVO Plus has worked straight away and without issue. It already came with the 2B2QEXM7 firmware mind.

Vs the regular 970 Evo it has a 10 to 15% faster read/write speed, measured in Blackmagic.

I just installed a 970 Evo Plus 1 TB which resulted in constant kernel panics. Updated the firmware and all issues solved. Working at full speed like a charm!

Samsung evo 970 plus is working great now. If you have the ssd with old firmware, simply upgrade it to newest one

I have the same problem for my 2nd 970 EVO plus (the first one, who runs macOS, was already with the good firmware), I never achieve to boot on the usb flash drive to do the update process, like if the usb is not bootable by the bios :/

all my actions have not yielded positive results. I had to get ssd and flash it on another computer.

I can confirm too that my 970 EVO Plus 250Gb works fine in my High Sierra. No issues.
... and It came with the 2B2QEXM7 firmware from factory.
Pardon my english... ;)

Hi there,

I have just received my Samsung 970 EVO Plus (500GB) today - last firmware from factory.
Fresh install of macOS Mojave (10.14.2) on it without any problem. Since then, no crash or reboot at all. I will keep you informed of any problem.

Hi @Kuaaaly, please can you tell me what your experience is after 6 months using the NVME SSD??
