    Does anyone have this model? Samsung MZ-7TD250BW
    Do i need to activate TRIM? I'm so confused about TRIM... for 830 series someone suggests to activate it... is the garbage collection in 840 enough? Thanks

    From what I've been reading lately, the 830 is closer to the performance of the 840 Pro which is more advanced than the 840. Stay with your 830 in my view.

    I have the Samsung 840 500GB SSD. Which is faster than the 250gb and smaller.

    Sure its not as fast as the 830 and the 840 Pro but its also cheaper too.

    The 840 replaced my Crucial M4 and its been faster than the M4 in write speeds and on par with read speeds.

    I paid 369$ on sale for it and I am really happy with my purchase.

    PS I enabled TRIM.

    I have a macbookpro mid 2009 with snow, and for me is the best choice, cheap and fast enough.

    With trim enabler or chameleon?

    TRIM should be enabled on Samsung SSD, I read this on Giga. Samsung VP told that TRIM is important for efficient performance.
