I am using Samsung SSD and I installed the utility once to update the SSD Firmware
Me too. :) Magician, Corsair ICue, GeForce Experience, any adjunct software OEM or 3rd party for hardware makes me uneasy to keep on the system for more than a one-shot deal. Only exception is MSI Afterburner which manipulates the clocks and fan of my graphics processor.. Bloatware otherwise.
