    Does the ssd really slow down as it gets older? My vertex 3 is around 2 years old now and when I first tested it with blackmagic I was getting much faster read and write speeds.

    Recently I noticed my startup times have gotten a little slower so I ran blackmagic again and my read and write speed are only about 150mb and 250 mb respectively. I think I have screenshots of my original test if no one believes me, just gotta search for them.

    I do have TRIM enabled, is this normal? Anything I can do?

    Thanks in advance!
