Samsung 990 Pro SSDs Report Rapid Health Degradation

Several users are reporting that the condition of one of the best SSDs, the Samsung 990 Pro, is deteriorating at a breakneck pace. The issue seems to affect the entire Samsung 990 Pro lineup, regardless of capacity. Some drives have lost 10% or more health in days or weeks.

Logically, the SSD health is 100% when checked with an SSD utility (such as CrystalDiskInfo) when first unboxed. But the number eventually goes down when you start writing data to the drive. The problem is when that value starts to decrease exponentially and you’re not writing data to the drive.
