    Hi All,

    I've gone through a few threads (quite a few to be honest), and I can't seem to get a yes or no answer.

    I just got a macbook pro 2012 (non retina), and bought a Samsung 830 512gb drive for it. I did a fresh install on the drive last night, and then I used Trim Enabler.

    Do I need to enable Trim on a samsung drive? If I do enable trim (which I did), will it cause issues?

    Thanks for any help!

    It makes sense to enable TRIM on Samsung SSDs due to Apple enabling TRIM on its Samsung SSD modules in the newest generation of MBPs.

    Hi Auzburner,

    Thanks for the reply (and obviously everyone else so far). I was kind of confused on the Samsung, and also since Trim isn't set by default and you have to make some hacks. I was a little leery.

    I will leave it enabled, I assume no ill effects from the latest version of Trim Enabler, or having trim setup period on a non apple *branded* ssd.

    TRIM is a good idea for Samsung SSDs, only drives with Sandforce controller don't necessarily need it.

    is trim needed on the crucial m4 ssds?
    i ordered the 256 gb model, was wondering if i need to enable trim on my new 2012 non retina 15" mb.
    also, if i need to enable it, what's the way to go?
    i read about an app that does that but it doesn't work so good and needs to be re applied if you update the os. is it better to do it with a terminal command?
