Hello guys.

Does any one tried new Samsung 980 (not pro version) with Hackintosh ? Should I expect any troubles with this SSD.
If yes what is the best SSD for Hackintosh ?
Thanks for reply.

without updating the firmware, I got "applenvme assert failed% ( 0 != data )" in the last steps of the installation before the language selection appears (big Sur 11.1)

Hi, I have a Monterey Hackintosh running on a Samsung 980 for a couple of weeks. I'm noticing some issues when trying to access apps, files, basically anything reads/writes to the drive... does anyone have a similar problem? Thanks

SanDisk drives are good if you want a solid SSD for macOS. As are Western Digital NVMe/SSD's. No firmware or Trim issues with either of these makes.
