It's taking them ages to admit that the vanilla 840 has the same problem. Just like the silent data corruption firmware problem with their 2TB Spinpoint F4, which they purported to have fixed (just like the 840 EVO). Now before you mark me as a troll / flamebait, know that I do like some of Samsung's storage products. I have a bunch of 1TB Spinpoint F1, 1TB Spinpoint F3 and 512GB 840 Pro drives, all performing brilliantly and reliably.

Sadly, this is true for any successful organization.

"But the more an organization succeeds and prospers, the more it is likely to be diverted from its original ideals, principles and purposes ........ Every combination of two or more human beings has both a useful aspect and a political aspect. These tend to conflict with each other. As the political aspect becomes more and more influential, the organization ceases to be useful to its members and starts using them.

Why does this happen? Because the better an organization is at fulfilling its purpose, the more it attracts people who see the organization as an opportunity to advance themselves.

The ability to get ahead in an organization is simply another talent, like the ability to play chess, paint pictures, do coronary bypass operations or pick pockets. There are some people who are extraordinarily good at manipulating- organizations to serve their own ends."
