Dude, I'm facing the same issue, this shi**y SSD (860EVO500GB) hangs my OS for about 1 minute randomly, have tried to use Windows10 and 2 Linux distros and it doesn't work, It's just cr*p. I'm not sure if my issue is related to my platform (AMD / FX-8320), so I'll try your suggestion about uninstalling AMD' drivers, but anyway, if that fixes my issue, that's far away to be a solution, how the F*** is Samsung selling a Unit that doesn't work with one of the two majors CPUs manufacturers. If your suggestion works (or not) in my system I'll edit my answer to let the users know. I would like to return/refund the unit, but unfortunately, I reside México, and the SSD was bought from Amazon MX, but they sent me one from Amazon US, I've called Amazon MX and they asked me to call Samsung MX, I called Samsung MX and they told me that I should call Amazon MX back again to ask Amazon US to canalize this issue with Samsung US, because Samsung MX doesn't want to accept my warranty because the unit isn't from them (Holy f*ck, it sounds like a gangb*ng, and guess who's feeling to be Mia Khalifa right now >:v), so, Nope, I'm not going to frustrate myself trying to get a refund for a crappy product, I'm simply going to buy a HyperX (As I ever did, I know, my fault trying to explore another brand). This is my first and last time that I ever buy a Samsung SSD, going back to Kingston HyperX.
