TRIM enable for 840, any problems?
Hello, i've recently had my SSD Samsung 840 replaced because after i brought my Macbook Pro to friends place my mac din't reboot showed Blinking Question mark Folder, i've tried plugging this SSD to my PC and it wont show it. So i'm not sure what could have caused this problem.
So right now i have replacement so wandering should i enable TRIM on it? and if so, what is the best method, any recommendations?

Use Trim Enabler
I have the 840 on a 2010 MacBook, with trim enabled using http://www.groths.org/trim-enabler/
Zero Problems. Though there is a safer way to enable trim using the terminal. Many posts on this: ex

TRIM *should* be enabled!
See this thread:
The last post links to a German language article which apparently confirms TRIM should definitely be enabled from Samsung employee's lips.
...and may need re-enabling after any OS X updates or if you reinstall, as well.
Hope this helps anyone unsure.

I had TRIM enabled on my first samsung 840, but it died within a week. On my replacement SSD, I did not enable TRIM. It work just as fast, on windows and OS X. It's been a good 3 months without TRIM and it works fine.
