    People are reporting the same, but I was able to flash the latest firmware.

    Perhaps Samsung is limiting the firmware download too. Try again later.

    Same, can't update firmware (if there is newer included with this) and they also disabled performance optimizing under win 8+

    Yes, it did that to me as well. just keep rerunning it at random and eventually it will show you the latest version.

    Another issue that I had was that the upgrade would fail. "Unable to upgrade firmware". I ended up having to completely uninstall the AMD SATA driver, reboot, and then let the default MS drivers install. After about 3 reboots, I ran the Magician and everything upgraded fine. I then reinstalled the AMD SATA drivers.

    All is well now.

    You'd think a multi-billion company would be able to host a few file servers for their 2MB downloads right ...

    I was not able to get Magician from Samsung. Somebody on the forum put it on a file sharing site, but I was able d/l the firmware on the first try, pretty pathetic. Samsung aint getting any more of my money anymore.

    I couldn't update my 840 PRO's firmware with Samsung Magician v4.5, but there was no problem updating it with v4.6.

    Maybe there's another reason? Considering the issue with one of the 850 firmwares and some other issues, maybe they want to limit it for know to get more of an assessment of how many people experiences issues, etc.

    Dunno, seems like there's another reason.

    Razer did a similar thing with the Abyssus 2014 update (which was silly considering the mouse was practically unusable without it).

    My 840 has never had the read bug, always returned over 500MB/s since instal. However the write speed is shockingly poor. 215MB/s and no its not the mobo or driver as my 2nd drive (SanDisk 256gb Ultra Plus) writes almost twice as fast.

    That's what Google did with Android 5.0 release. Would make sense.

    the first thing come into my head about limiting download is
    all about limiting the spread, so incase there is bug / issue within new firmware, it still limited

    You cannot force the performance optimization anymore with 4.6 on W8.1 (not that you need anyway)
