    Hey all.
    I have a 2011 17" MBP and have installed the Crucial M4 256gb SSD. Have had the drive installed for a month or so, and am loving the speed.
    I am still not 100% sure if I should or not get TRIM enabled? I have had some say yes, and others say no.
    What are other users experiences and thoughts?

    If I am to enable TRIM, how do I?

    Thanks

    I have an M4 in my MBP as well and have had TRIM enabled since day 1. I conducted a few speed tests before and after and have had no issues with slow downs, beachballing or overall instability. The garbage collection of the M4 isn't as good as something running SandForce so I figured it couldn't hurt, and so far so good. I used this site to enable it:

    He also outlines a way to disable it in the even that any issues to arise, but like I said, I've had 0 issues at all.
