Three months use on a single X25.

G1, no trim support (and I'm on Vista anyway) and never run third-party trim either.

Not going to delete the partition to run write tests, but there is no noticeable degradation.

Well... it's obvious that you need to spend more time in front of your PC and use the drive more.

Nice!

I tossed all my pre-RAID single drive tests but I guess Intel's G1 pre-TRIM "clean and orderly" stuff is working just fine.

I generally don't keep folders, just drive images and I probably deleted that folder to make a smaller image and then deleted that image while cleaning my WHS storage.

AAR, I've always read that the G1 drives didn't need TRIM and your screenshots add validation.

G1 need TRIM if heavily used.

It's performance degrading due partially filled sectors... not corrupted sectors.

Also, there are absolutely bad sectors on your Samsung drive. It just internally remaps them to reserved space so you don't see them.

Where did you work that out from? His results show nothing as its the write performance that decreases, but using TRIM stops that from being much of a problem.

Oh, i misevaluated the benchmark comparisons then.

@Duckieho, I know SSDs have shorter life cycle than mechanical drives. I read it before. And my good ol Samsung drive, i run HD Tune bad sector test on it results were fine.

So would you guys say that one x-25M Gen2 will eventually outperform two x-25M Gen2 Raid 0 due to degredation? (No trim support on RAID by Intel

raid 0 doesn't support trim so it degrades faster. just your writing
