Samsung 840 SSD performance drop


Only after a few months of usage I noticed a large drop in performance from my 840, specifically the read speeds.

Here's a benchmark I took just a few monitues ago:

The read speeds were around 550 just 5 weeks ago when I ran the last benchmark, the speed has dropped almost 50%! Something must be wrong... right?

  1. When the last time you left the system powered on and at the log on screen for a few hours... so that garbage collection and trim can do their thing?
  2. Best answer
    Reboot your pc before you go to bed or before you go to work and let it idle at the login screen.
    Let TRIM and idle Garbage Collection recover drive performance and see if that improves your Sequential Read scores.
