It's a lower than average starting % for new SSDs.

But you shouldn't have corruption until it hits 0%. Maybe there was a partially bad NAND chip, which caused so many blocks to die?

If you don't like installing programs, you can see TRIM is enabled by:

Click on Start Orb > Type "CMD.exe" in Search box > Right click on "CMD" and select "Run as Administrator" (If you receive a prompt confirmation, click YES)

fsutil behavior query disabledeletenotify

DisableDeleteNotify = 1 (Windows TRIM commands are disabled)
DisableDeleteNotify = 0 (Windows TRIM commands are enabled)

To enable trim: fsutil behavior set disabledeletenotify 0
To disable trim: fsutil behavior set disabledeletenotify 1

It's not slow or anything, I haven't noticed any issues.

I think what gives them the biggest kicking is having only 10-20GB free space to do all the wear leveling

This is asuming my SSDs use "Dynamic wear leveling"!
Cause my 160GB Intel only had my OS and Apps on it. And so had about 100GB free for the wear leveling to spread the load!
And with over 6TB through it, 98% ain't bad

OP: The answer is yes, it is automatically "enabled" but it might not be working, if you are not using a SATA driver that supports it.
The default built-in msahci.sys and pciide.sys support TRIM, and intel's new RST 9.6 driver supports it, so far nothing else has been released that says it supports it, and since there are no ways to test it easily I can't really tell unless the company says it does.

differing opinions as to SMART data and drive health...

All of the SSD life screenshots here are Green with a big tick and the words "EXCELLENT".... so....

Sandforce drives report 85% quite often when new... I've read they don't go down very quickly, so maybe they should tune their SMART reporting so it appears "safer"...
Basically it's not a problem

The Indilinx drive that was a month old posted by SlaveOnDope looks about right for the amount of data written...

Just install the latest intel chipset drivers then run this command prompt (as administrator):
fsutil behavior query Disabledeletenotify

if answer is 0 then Trim is Enabled if answer is 1, then Trim is Disabled.
