    After I put a Samsung 470 SSD in my new MBP 13, I downloaded and installed the Trim Enabler. In the system information, it shows Trim is enabled. Everything seems to be working perfectly, but I have been reading about problems with the Trim Enabler. What kind of problems have been surfacing?

    Most people are waiting for Lion. Currently the TRIM enabled causes more problems then it's worth. The list starts like this: Random kernal panics, random freezing, Drive performig slowly, random app reeves and more (includes beach balling). TRIM was left not being enabled for a reason. Seems to be little hit and miss though, many have problems but
    Some don't.

    ill never understand why do people think they are so smart and absolutely need to mess around with their systems? you find a HACK to enable trim on your ssd and you do it immediately without any knowledge and experience whatsoever? i find that quite interesting

    I have enabled TRIM on my Intel G2 (in a 2011 MacBook Pro) and have run into no problems. If you look in the thread started by the guy who created the program in the Mac Pro forum, you'll see that the majority of people do not have any problems.

    My Macbook Pro is a second machine that is fully backed up and I understand the risks of the TRIM hack, but just thought it would be an interesting experiment that I could learn from along the way.

    yeah no problems, but what does it do? does it do the same like in oem ssds in macbook pro 2011? has anyone tested it? does anyone know anything about how it works? and by that i dont mean reading reviews, but testing it

    Time, because it rules EVERYTHING!
    The trim feature currently is designed primarily to only work with Apple's own SSD drives and the firmware put on them. Using the feature on none Apple SSD's is what has caused the issue.
    But read this forum and it's a massive mixed bag of success and failure. Kinda got to try it and see if it works for you really. I think a lot of people are hoping Lion will support Trim fully for none Apple SSD's and that should solve the issues.. hopefully..

    No problems for Vertex 2 240 GB (25nm, 64-bit). Using latest firmware, 1.33.

    Anand Tech is the best

    He does real world testing and puts the results down with no BS. The SSD companies can't hide from him. Either their stuff is good or it isn't.
