    i recently purchased a samsung evo 1tb ssd and i was wondering if i would have any performance loss if i put the OS and all my media on the 1tb ssd. primary use will be editing raw dslr files and video editing in premiere pro cs6. i know installing the OS and keeping media files on one hd is a bad idea because it bogs everything down. does the same logic apply to ssd's?

    i currently have an owc ssd and owc does not recommend to enable trim, but the samsung evo ssd does. i don't want to buy another 240gb samsung evo to replace the owc ssd which is working flawlessly.

    thanks in advance.

    update: after further research, i have learned that if i install a sata3 SSD in the optibay i will get random freezes and beachballs. it does not make a difference if the MBP has sata2 or sata3 connections, only sata 2 SSD/HDD will successfully work without issues in the optibay... i have no choice but to install the sata3 1TB SSD in the main HD port and use it for the OS and media. now i have to figure out if i want to leave the optibay empty or reinstall the superdrive which i never use.
