    Hello,

    I have the i7, non-touch, 16GB and PM951 SSD system.
    A month ago I installed a clean windows 10. I made simple benchmarks for the SSD to make sure it's working ok.
    I used 2 tools for the benchmark, Samsung Magician and Crystal Disk.
    About 10 days ago I installed the Windows Redstone update and today I made a new benchmarks.
    Crystal Benchmarks was very close to the old one.
    Samsung Magician shows a significant decrease in Sequential Read. I tried running the test couple of times and restarted the laptop and still have the same issue.

    Here are new and old benchmarks in a comparison

    Here are the old (very similar to the new) Crystal Benchmarks

    Thanks a lot in advance! :D

    I think it's odd that crystal mark doesn't show a drop while magician does. Typically magician seems to have over inflated numbers. I don't know sadly what could be causing it, are you running in AHCI or RAID mode? You could always try wiping free space with ccleaner, but that adds wear to your SSD...

    I'm running AHCI mode. I have 51% free space in partition C and 34% in partition D.

    Yes.. Without it i get BSoD every few hours. It only stabilize after installing it. I tried it many times.
    After installing Redstone update the BSoD came back and kept appearing every few hours till i re installed the Samsung driver.

    Strange, I was going to suggest reinstalling the samsung nvme driver after the update. Have you tried benching with AS-SSD?
