    Unhappy TRIM Support
    i search all documents about TRIM Support for SSD (Solid) on Google. before i open my system preference, i know apple just open TRIM Support on Apple SSD only.
    but this is not true, Apple didn't open this setting for all SSD, i guess. i guess we have already had a 3-part software in order to open this setting.
    for my information, just wanna know how many person know this thing.

    TRIM support will be included with the next OS X release, Lion. You can read about that in various articles on the web.

    As for right now, it's not as important as you think. According to MacWorld who performed extensive testing on SSDs stated that Mac OS X treats the drive differently than Windows (where TRIM support is included for Win 7) and even after many writes, re-writes, formats, etc. no loss of speed or efficiency of the drives were noted.

    G'day and welcome to the forums.

    Just don't worry about TRIM. Have a read of this article, particularly the last page:-

    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
