Great IDEA!!! I'm in.

Let's stop trying to find a workaround to enable TRIM for 3rd-party SSDs and bug Apple until they enable it.

Send your feedback. http://www.apple.com/feedback/macosx.html

Sent!
Great idea!!!

Could you please provide us with a text block we can copy & paste so all our requests will be the same? What buttons did you select and how did you fill this form? Thanks in advance for your input!




Cheers

Thanks for the support. To answer your question regarding the text, it wasn't anything special that I said, the gist was that I asked them to enable TRIM support for third-party SSDs. Also, I don't think the requests have to be same text, as long as we are all asking for TRIM to be enabled for third-party SSDs.

For the drop downs, I put "Software/Hardware Compatibility" for the Feedback Type. I wasn't sure of what Feedback Area so I chose "Software/Firmware Update." OS is 10.10. The rest depends on your personal set up.

If enough people complained they would probably respond. It worked for Camera Roll in iOS 8.

I have submitted Feedback requesting Trim on many occasions, and I will continue to do so. It just seems that there are plenty of people willing to complain on the forums, but not to Apple.

Afraid of the Men In Black? ;)

I did my feedback 3 odd weeks ago, been saying on and off about this too since.

I also said they should give Cindori a job :D

Asked for kext restrictions lifted for genuine apple parts too as all of this falls into 'fair use'. Now that have put up the 10.10 signed garden fence they are wide open to a legal challenge over this

Done. I hope it happens. I hate that every time there is an OS X update I have to go into TRIM Enabler, disable it, reboot, install the update, reboot, re-enable TRIM, and reboot again. Damn kext signing.

I will send one when I get home from work.

If the bean counters won't allow it, then at least give us an option to take it to the Apple Store and let us buy an overpriced Apple one for their "genius" install.

A little over 1,200 views on this thread, so far. Hopefully, we will see some action.

Third party suppliers

Just sent an inquiry at sales@lacie.com:

Hi
I am interested in your product LaCie Little Big Disk Thunderbolt 2.
Question: Has this device native TRIM support on OS X Mavericks?

Thank you in advance for an answer and best regards,
xxx


We will see their response.

Maybe we should make more demands to the third party suppliers.
