TRIM Support and Conclusion

TRIM Support

Almost all new controllers come with TRIM support. In other cases TRIM is available via firmware updates.

Hmm what is TRIM? :To keep it simple TRIM command allows an operating system to inform the SSD, which data blocks, such as those belonging to a deleted file or affected by a format command, are no longer considered in use and can be wiped internally. TRIM enables the SSD to handle garbage collection overhead, in advance, that would otherwise significantly slow down future write operations to the involved blocks.

Without TRIM the drive performance will degrade over time. Trim is an Operating System feature and is supported by only the following Operating Systems:

  • Windows 7
  • Windows Server 2008 R2
  • Linux 2.6.33
  • Open Solaris
  • FreeBSD 8.1

Conclusion

These are some of the things to keep in mind while buying a SSD for now. I hope it helps guys like me who was wondering what matters when it comes to buying a SSD. This technology is evolving constantly, with new innovations coming in every month. But as of now, if you carefully consider all the above mentioned points, you are good to go the SSD way.
