need help about TRIM - SSD noob alert :(

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
first of all, is this a good SSD?

second of all it says it has TRIM support?

what is TRIM and how do i enable it in windows 7 when my SSD comes in the next couple of days?

and i heard SSD degrade over time? what long are we talking about? week? months? years?

Cheers for the help

Ollie

windows will auto enable trim. Download free SSDLIFE to see its enabled, also free SSDTweaker and run the auto thinngy in it to do the basic tweaks. As far as iam aware Trim activates when you delete files, not if you move them say you move a big file from ssd to HDD trim dont work and thats no good for the ssd...

Heres a snapshot of my C300 which I throttle daily, many years throttling left so dont worry too much about it packing in quickly....

This lot should help you http://www.ocztechnologyforum.com/fo...146#post442146

With regard to your SSD choice Id consider the Vertex2 over the one you have linked to, sry keep editing post lol
