This, unless you're regularly deleting files off the PS3, it's going to not really suffer much from the effects of not having TRIM.

I think it would be better for SSD controllers to handle TRIM, since most OSes do not support it. HDDs may take a performace hit if they become overly fragmented, but it does not stress them in the way fragmentation stresses SSDs. I don't know if manufacturers and developers will port TRIM utilities to other platforms, or if they will build it into their machines as an option so SSDs could find wider adoption.

Of course, right now, the lack of SSDs at the retail level, and their cost premium is really restraining them. I could see using them at work - if they built in TRIM, since the machines we use will probably never support TRIM, as the manufacturers are entirely fixated on HDDs...

Yeah, there's the potential to have this done automatically, unlike defragging which is just due to a bad file system.
