It is now known that the samsung F4 has a buggy firmware that causes
64 sectors of data to randomly be discarded from the write cache when
an ATA command to identify the device is executed during a disk write.
I have 3 F4 and I have verified that the issue does exist on my
drives. Samsung is  aware of this bug and is working on a fix.
