It will causes random application freezes. Not hard crush but pretty annoying.

Overclock.net users have reported similar issues. The problem firmware version is 3B6QCXP7. I am not sure whether the rest of Samsung's SSD line up is affected. Better safe than sorry. And as always, back up your stuff. You never know a SSD firmware update may cripple your computer.

I have already submitted a ticket to Samsung. Hopefully it will get resolved soon.

Can you get back to previous version, should tide you over till there's a fix?
Also don't upgrade your firmware (any hardware) unless you need to, especially latest firmware on work machines et al. If ain't broke ~ you know, let others be the usual guinea pigs first o_O

Samsung has yanked the problematic firmware from their online support as well as Samsung magician. Hope they can fix it soon.

I'm glad I don't jump on new firmware... My Evo and Pro has no need of an upgrade but glad to let others know of the issue
