I have a Samsung PRO Series SSD. Linux deactivates Trim for this SSD because it deletes the wrong data when asynchronous Trim is used (firmware bug).

Regarding firmware updates: A lot of users report that the firmware update failed for them. Furthermore, Samsung only offers its update software for Windows for the SSD I have. Its Linux version only supports certain business SSDs, the Windows version only certain consumer SSDs. Unfortunately, I don't have business SSD (and no Windows installation which I'm frankly rather glad about, most of the time). There seems to be a way to do the update anyways but it's rather hacky. To top it all off, I don't even know whether the firmware update fixes the problem.
