Of course one could go with sata 3 but then you wont get the trim function. There's
also an option of getting a fast pci sata card but those are rather expensive (not sure
about trim here).
but maybe they will fix that problem on the new vertex models lets hope it. other
than that im sure the vertex 3 with rock.
Hi OP I would be inclined to hang on for the vertex 3.....
As for the pci mega fast PCI Revo versions im fairly certain they dont support Trim, as they are in essense two vertex 2's stuck in a psuedo raid fashion onto a pci card. And Trim isnt supported in raid. yet.....
Id like to know how we can actually tell if this Trim thing is working, we can see it's enabled or not via a bit of typing into CMD, but actually working? I sat hours with my PC logged off and matchsticks holding me eyes open, nite in nite out and seen no hdd led activity EVER! SAD LOL
OCZ say leave your pc logged out overnight a few times a week, yeah right! And they say they cant see why its up to them to spend time writing a program to run Trim, I can like the gazillion Â£'s these drives cost!
If one hunts about on the OCZ website (not easy it's all over the place) someone, a user has written a program that will do trim as desired, at own risk. Havent been able to locate it again though....Edited by moonmanas - 1/16/11 at 5:56pm
