    Yes, I too am anxious to see how this work, especially since I don't perceive any problem with my SP3 I'm reluctant to be one of the first to run this (if it's not broke don't fix it kind of this).

    Is this for all Samsung SSD that are used in SP3s?

    I didn't have any problems with my SP3 but I installed it. It seems faster opening apps and navigating, don't know if it's placebo...
    One thing I noticed is I don't have Fast Startup and Hibernate options anymore. Anyone else?

    I'm still waiting for link to the Hotfix to be emailed to me. Been 24 hours.

    I'm in the same position as ScottyS, no current issues, so no great desire to be one of the 1st to try it out.

    ETA - link just arrived, with this warning: (I'll be waiting for the next service pack release)

    The tool from https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3166746
    will disable hibernation. This took a while to find out ...
    I guess, it is a bug. The surface will stay in connected standby forever until you wake it up again. Also, when you have enabled hibernation options for the power button, it is gone.

    Easiest way, to get hibernation back is from a command line as admin:

    powercfg -h:eek:n

    or regedit

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\HibernateEnabled -> 1

    SSD performance seem significantly improved!

    Indeed.

    If anyone has a contact at MS, can you please write them why is this implemented?

    Cheers.
