Maybe you should try to return these and get your money back. The 
problem does not seem to be specific to use in a "server".

The physical block size also seems to be reported incorrectly.

Samsung cut corners by not taking the time to give each device a 
unique addressable ID as part of their manufacturing process.  It may 
even be that a step was "accidentally" skipped in the manufacturing 
process (to make quotas) and that some devices are correctly 
configured from the factory while others are not.
