Fake Samsung 980 Pro SSDs Are Spreading Around

The Samsung 990 Pro superseded it, but the Samsung 980 Pro was one of the best SSDs. Now, it may be nearly three years old, but it’s a popular PCIe 4.0 drive that’s far more affordable than its successor, so it’s no shock that there are many fakes on the market.

1 Chinese user from Baidutieva (opens in new tab) (via Harukaze 5719 (opens in new tab)) I recently came across a fake Samsung 980 Pro on a forum. The fake drive contained everything that suggested it was genuine, including a Samsung 980 Pro 2TB sticker and firmware that later turned out to be fake. The counterfeiting was so good that the mystery drive even managed to trick the Samsung Magician software. Once the sticker was removed, the drive showed all signs of a counterfeit SSD.
