Samsung T1 1 TB SSD for sample libraries?

I bought a Samsung T1 SSD a few months back for storing sample libraries. Lots of orchestral stuff, drums...the usual suspects. The drive has been horrible for me, it takes almost 10 times longer to load in, say, a LASS violin than my other HD, a 7200rpm connected via FW800.

I'm suspecting something is just wrong with the drive, and am ready to get an RMA to send it back for a replacement....but I'm curious if anyone else has tried using this and also had poor results, or if it's been working great for others. Just wondering what I should expect when I get the replacement.

BTW, I'm using it with a 2013 Macbook Pro, USB 3.0....connected directly (with a 3.0 cable), no hubs.

Thanks for any help or advice.
