The only complaints I have seen with this SSD is that Samsung drivers screw the product up and AMD motherboards are not compatible anyone able to support either of these statements?

I'm not sure where you have been reading this but I wouldn't believe it.
I have a 250GB Samsung 840 EVO in my AMD desktop PC and it runs perfectly. I also have a 500 GB Samsung 840 PRO in my laptop which is also AMD and I've never had a problem with it.
In my experience, Samsung 840s and AMD get along just fine.

I was recently advised by a computer technician not to pair any SSD with an AMD chip/motherboard. Not due to incompatibility, but rather to a waste of the SSD's speed. He said the speed of the SSD was faster than the AMD chips/motherboards (presently), and that the user wouldn't realize the SSD's full potential. But - I've read that replacing a mechanical drive with an SSD drive will increase speed and performance of any computer - regardless of age or chipset.
