Back in early 2019 the new 970 EVO Plus drives had problems (freezing, crashing etc.) with macOS High Sierra and Mojave. As you know, APFS started with macOS High Sierra. Was it a coincidence problems started then ?
It was only possible to use these drives with macOS after a firmware update fixed the issues. Since no other NVMe drives, at least that I know of, had problems like this, it's obvious that Samsung was at fault then. That was the first incident that told us of compatibility problems with macOS and a specific Samsung NVMe drive.Hi all, Some weeks ago Samsung introduced some new M2 NVM SSDs. I wanted to purchase the older 970 Evo model to create a dual boot system for my Intel Skull Canyon . The new drive is only slightly more expensive and I don't mind the additional 1000 MB/s write speeds. Are there any users that...www.tonymacx86.com
No appears not why anyone would expect them to work let alone rely on know problem drives is beyond me. That was years ago plenty of time to have had a fair warning in advance of purchase. Last and only time I had to update the firmware on a drive it was mechanical piece of junk Seagate. Every one of them things died I still have some of the drives that replaced them working fine, Western Digital, the others were sold off when I upgraded to larger sizes. Never have bought another Seagate that was over decade ago.
